Big budget, zombie-themed games don't understand what the undead truly represent, but these upcoming indie titles may actually evoke that desperation, fear, and isolation.
I'm hoping for 'Class 4' to be the 'real' zombie game
All they need to do is make the player extremely vulnerable and punish them for failing. Demon's Souls does this (makes enemies as strong as player) and it makes the very scary. Especially on the first play through with traps and not knowing how to kill bosses (if boss kills you, you go back to the start of the stage). They need to add that and make sure everything is scarce. Basically if the game is like Dead Space with the stuff above then I think it should be good. But vulnerability is the next step.
Really looking forward to Dead State. I've been following its development since the announcement.
A real zombie game would be one in which you are the zombie
Left 4 dead multiplayer.
Dead Nation is the only zombie game i need, so much fun.
There used to be one, I think it was called Resident Evil...
The RDR zombie dlc was actually decent as far as a zombie game goes. It wasn't mindless even if it focused a little too much on combat. But otherwise, it was a step or two above most completely mindless zombie games out there.
I dont really follow up on zombie games, but has there been one where if you get hit once (bitten, scratched, etc.) you turn into a zombie? I mean if you want a true zombie game that'd be a requirement,
No they won't. As long as people love mindless killing in games, zombies will be there like punching balls. Would killing people for fun in video games fire up a great deal of speculation? Then simply put zombies in it, and your problem is solved. The target audience is entertained, your sales are guaranteed and you'll have no opposition as, you know, they're just "zombies". You'll realise what a shame it is after you watch movies/series like Walking Dead.
Yeah, I've been wishing for a real zombie game for forever. Like focused on moving somewhere safe and survival. Not fighting zombies, but like finding food/survivers and avoiding zombies. That'd be a cool game..
... A game came out where it was like, a randomly generated city. Have like, a huge server of say 1000 people. Start with 750 of them as zombies. The zombies would be fast and strong, but the humans could find guns (with hardly any ammo). The idea of the game would be for the humans to find some sort of set of resources as a 'cure', and for the zombies to kill the humans before they did so. Whenever a zombie died, they would respawn at one of a few spawn points... Whenever a human died, they would join the Zombie team. That would be so cool! If the map was generated at random, the Zombies could never just camp outside the hidden 'cure' requirements! And if you quit the game, your character would just stay where he was (so the game could last days, but humans who stopped playing in real life would have to hide (like you'd have to hide to sleep in real life!))
I can only dream :(. lol EDIT: Oh! And if you got bored of playing, you could quit and the space would free up for someone to join the Zombie team! Maybe 900 zombies and 100 humans.
I hope Dead Island turns out good.
A real zombie game would be with zombies coming out of the graves.
But that's just hollywood Bullshit man. 1. Anything in the grave would most likely be skeletal remains. 2. opening a coffin 6 feet underground would be extremely hard. 3. If they managed to open the coffin, They wouldn't be able to climb out of the 6 feet of dirt on top of them.
I have high hopes for dead island. I like that is drop in our coop and that the more people are in the harder the difficulty is, but each character has specializations that they can combine to be more effective together. I'm just hopping it makes you truly survive. Like must stay feed, hydrated or you take a hit to speed and strenght. so you have to truly ration what you got and what you can carry. Humm i can hold 15 lbs my gun is 14lbs now can only carry one pound of food/water so do i drop my gun for a lighter weapon or take a hit to speed.
I miss RE: Outbreak. Truly the only good zombie co-op game.
it would have been if it had voice chat. the stupid canned responses ruined the game. I was sooo diapointed w/it.
