Could You Actually Survive A Zombie Apocalypse?

VGW: Just like their movie counterparts, not all zombie apocalypses featured in video games are created equally. Some of them can easily be survived by exercising common sense and your second amendment rights, while others are so nightmarish that they make George Romero's vision of the zombie holocaust look like a stroll in the park. The question is: which zombie-inspired End of Days scenario is the most horrific, and do you have a prayer of surviving any of them?

So long as nemesis wasn't there and the zombies were slow...i'm sure I could....

Also, L4d is fu**ing hard on Expert. You have too apply the right tactics to win, and often you just have to leave someone behind to win at the end, for example, I remember on the one where a boat rescues you, 3 friends and I set off the alarm, went back to the safe room you start in and waited, nothing came, we waited till the boat docked, then everyone just ran through the map straight for the boat. Only one of us made it, not me(boomer bile....tank...I was fuc*ed), I think it'd be pretty hard to survive this, the zombies can run too.

Edit---haha, memories though, what a brilliant game

sure, if what you need is just survive it wouldn't be that hard, if you live in an apartment and have plenty of food, you can easily sustain yourself until they all die of starvation

now if you have to travel to get to your love ones or something then you're screwed

if you have a mushroom, crowbar, bandanna for infinite ammo, nanosuit, last stand, and martyrdom perk ur good to go , or u can just count on duke to help you

Great point - especially if we are not talking "special powered" video game zombies.

As for a "real" zombie apocalypse - no "powered" zombies that is - I own a second level condo. I would just hack off the stairs leading to my front door and BAM! I'm suddenly out of reach. Then I would just run a ladder down the balcony - about a 12 foot drop - for any needed exit for supplies or what not, all the while carrying my pump action 12 gauge shotgun.

I'm prepared for pretty much anything (except for strangers at my door...that is always awkward).

Electroshocked2806d ago

It would be pretty awesome if Rockstar made a huge zombie apocalypse survival game, something similar to 28 days later or 28 weeks later, preferably more like 28 weeks later because of it being in a more urban setting than 28 days later.

@lociefer Funny bubble for you, I have to admit, that was funny.

well, what can of zombies are we talking about?

if it's the classic Romero slow ones it would be easy, I might even go out to kill a few just for fun

if it's the slow ones but mixed with Resident Evil-style monsters then you best chance is to stay home quietly

if it's the Dawn of the Dead/28 days/weeks Later fast ones then you're probably screwed anyway but you should make a run for a gun store or a military base or something as soon as it breaks

if it's the L4D fast ones with sorted monsters and the witches then you might as well go out and let a weak one bite you and then kill it so you can become a zombie before they eat you

The real question is: How does the infection spread?

Is it airborne? In the water supply? Can we avoid it or is it so pervasive than anyone who is not immune is screwed?

As long as the only way to get infected is to get bitten by a zombie, then most of us would survive simply by outlasting the them (assuming some semblance of science, they would all eventually starve to death).

I'd be one of those motorcyclers who roam around pillaging and murdering everyone for fun like in the old-school Dawn of the Dead. Yes I would end up getting killed sooner or later, but at least I would have fun until then.

rabidpancakeburglar2806d ago

I'm about 30 pounds heavier than I should be so I think it's safe to say that I'd be among the first to go if they are the modern runner zombies

Rule Number 1 in Zombieland: Cardio

rabidpancakeburglar2806d ago (Edited 2806d ago )

my only hope of survival according to those rules is that I always have my seatbelt fastened

MrDead2806d ago

Hasn't anyone seen The Only Way is Essex on ITV2? The mindless zombies are here, we are all doomed.

Trroy2806d ago

Of course. The whole idea of zombies working as a team is stupid.

Any real zombie hunter knows that simply waiting for them to eat each other is the best strategy. ;)

MrDead2806d ago (Edited 2806d ago )

same rules apply at a swingers party
