yes because it adds the a Guns vs hordes of melee attackers, something that is best explained with the inclusion of zombies in an otherwise shooter only game.

I dont think it is the zombie aspect so much as it is the horde aspect of things that people seem to love so much...this is the reason why I think that zombies SHOULDN'T be in every game, but a horde like melee attack enemy SHOULD.

and when I say horde I don't mean "horde mode" like in gears of war. That, imo, was very boring because it was pretty much campaign mode, just with no story. What I would have liked would have been like a Spire mode, in which gears fend off increasingly difficult waves of melee only Spires and maybe wretches too.

I like William Johnson's response to "What would be awesome with zombies in it?" A GTA: Zombie Apocalypse would be an interesting game to play. It would make the 'survival' aspect of Survival Horror much more fun to play in a free roaming environment. I didn't play Undead Nightmare because, while I'm sure it deserved every award it's received to date, and Rockstar hasn't disappointed me yet, I couldn't really get into RDR. I do like the concept though. I'd buy an Undead Nightmare add-on for GTA IV.

do yourself a favor and get undead nightmare - it's a lot of fun and the story/humor really surprised me as to how good it was.

as far as a freeroaming survival horror game - isn't that kind of what the L4D series is? i haven't played it since i only own a ps3 but i'd buy it in a second if came to the sony console.

I've never played Left 4 Dead. Like you, I only own a PS3. I think my neighbor has Undead Nightmare, I'll have to go over there and check it out when the new wears off his copy of GT5.
