"A prevalent fixation in modern pop-culture is that of zombies.
Zombies. The Undead. The Walking Dead. The Living Dead. Whatever you want to call them, they’ve always been a common feature of video games.
More recently, however, they have become a hackneyed icon.
From the past few years, let’s name a few games that primarily focused on the undead: Dead Rising 1 and 2, Resident Evil 5, Silent Hill Homecoming, Nation Red, Burn Zombie Burn, Dead Space, and Left 4 Dead 1 and 2.
Bringing this even further, the amount of games that contain a zombie add-on or extra is even heftier: Call of Duty: World at War (the upcoming Black Ops will feature the Zombies mode as well), Borderlands, Half-Life 2, the entire Halo series, and heck, we could even go so far as to include Fallout 3 and the recently released New Vegas as games that contain the undead in some shape or form.
To put it simply, it’s overdone."
