Velocity Gamer writes: Dead Island is approaching 2 million in sales, for a new IP that's really good. Zombies are everywhere, and they are winning. Can zombies sell anything?
They don't neccessarily sell instantly, but they do grab in a whole lot of attention. As a zombie lover any zombie game that looks half decent, I look into it and then see if it's worth my money. There's just something about zombies and killing them which is incredibly fun and satisfying for reasons unknown. I think some people do buy games as soon as they hear zombies, but I also thing many people look at the game at hand first. As a zombie lover, we have high standards but a lot of people easily overlook a game purely for the zombies. In short, Zombie games generate a whole load of attention no matter what game it is, we simply love zombie games. Zombies can pretty much sell anything, like the article says, just got to hope zombies don't get attatched to bad games too much.
Too many zombies? Never. We are used to endless waves of zombies.
I like zombies. It's a situation that's appealing to people. I think a lot of people would like to see how they would fair in that situation.
zombies cant sell anything, they are brain dead.
I wasn't expecting that one, funny stuff!
I think its not really the zombie aspect that sells, but the Co-Op survival modes they bring with it.
Yogurt. I'd never buy yogurt from a zombie. Anything else though, I'm in.
Hmmm.... Zombies is a fad nowadays. Everything has got zombies e.g. Cod, red dead etc. Now devs need to think what else is there besides zombies. Battlefield has reported to hav dinosaurs. I don't need firing a rpg to a t-Rex
Need more dinosaurs.
I hate the over-saturation of Zombies, we need moar dinos instead.
yep but as soon as the money is exchanged they try to eat you
Racing games will not benefit if it had zombies
Zombies is the "in" theme nowadays, it'll wane soon enough but it'll never totally die out.
