Zombies are almost as horrible as vampires.

Completely awful.

i noticed that too, its been zombies in overdrive more then usual.

like i know it october but wtf!?

Silogon4276d ago

Yeah, but none have been break out usages of Zombies. They're all very small taste of them. I'd like to see a blown out, 3rd person, Zombie game the size of Mercs 2 or Saints Row 2... Cites full of ravenous zombies.

It wouldn't surprise me if a game like that came out in 2010 around the time World War Z hits theaters (great book btw, go read it).

That would be really great. Zombies are my all-time favourite "monsters". I grow up watching zombie movies and I'm still pretty much normal. Well gotta go eat some brains.

i personally dont care for cod5, or gta4

so that just leaves left 4 dead, which im semi excited for even with r2 and lbp on my list

Yes, I'd definitely say that 2008 is the year of the zombies. Left 4 Dead, CoD5's Nazi Zombies, GTA IV Zombie Skin, Fallout 3 has some zombie-like monsters, World of Warcraft: Wrath of The Lich King, Cryostasis: Sleep of Reason (looks like zombies), Silent Hill: Homecoming. Haven't heard much lately about Dead Island though, too bad.
