zombies are so hot right now. If not, throw a molotov cocktail on one and they soon will be.

They won't go away for several reasons:
1. It appeals to many young gamers because "zombies are cool".
2. It's very easy to make NPCs. AI is not an issue with hordes.
3. You can sell a brutal zombie game to teenagers as zombies are not real people (it doesn't count they were).
4. You don't really need to think about art style when you produce graphics with corpses.
5. Zombie games sell.

Imagine if they made a zombie movie but along the plot of Twilight. Some stupid chick falling in love with a zombie who want to eat her brains. Actually, no... if it becomes popular and becomes a trilogy, i would really hate people.

They are:
Although to call it a 'zombie' is stretching it.

Anyway on topic, DayZ and The Walking Dead were the type zombie games I was waiting for, and now we have them I'm pretty fed up with the standard zombie game. Until someone mixes the two: an open world realistic zombie survival game, but with realistic human characters and consequences to your decisions. I thought Dead Island would be that game, but we know how that turned out.
