Let's Talk About Zombies

I love zombies. Like, really love zombies. I’d marry one if I could.

i'm still waiting for THE zombie game to end all zombie games. it'll probably be dead island if that ever friggen comes out. the others like dead rising or l4d are honestly just games that happen to have zombies in them, wrapped around some relatively silly gameplay.

Why no FPS Zombie games on the PS3? There is just about every other type, but never Zombies! 3rd person just doesn't do it, you need to be fully immersed to be truly terrified. The 360 has L4D, and Dead Rising looks boring!
