Do Zombies Make Everything Better?

Kotaku just previewed concept art for an upcoming zombie video game, "Project Zomboid," and it got us thinking. More than a year ago, western shooter "Red Dead Redemption" released "Undead Nightmare," which was essentially an expansion of the exact same game, with the exact same map... But instead of desperados, you fought zombies. And you know what? It was pretty frickin' awesome.

If things go according to plan, "Project Zomboid" will be a zombie game manifesto. The zombie gaming aethetic has been evolving since "House of the Dead" and "Resident Evil," and since "Left 4 Dead" came out in 2008 game producers have been trying to get the formula just right. "Project Zomboid" differentiates between fast zombies and slow zombies, presumes you will eventually succumb to the infection, and even incorporates issues like depression and alcoholism. Zombie games are practically an artform unto themselves.

    The Walking Dead comics and AMC TV show will mainstream it.

    Not necessaryt no. I am playing Red Dead At the moment (Will play Undead Nightmare afterwards). But I did play that Dead Island and it was pretty crap I must say, the whole Zombie thing is pretty cool if you are playing Resident Evil Games or Games like it. Dead Island or Zombies like games seem like games that not much have been spent on them it is overused a bit I think.

    I believe the whole zombie idea is getting quite overused. They're in literally everything, and they don't stop popping up! It just gets so.. tiresome.

    It normally doesn't do anything for me. I actually hated Undead Nightmare, but I kind of liked Red Dead Redemption...

    I am waiting for zombie pizza to come out.
    I wonder what it would look like? Maybe big cheese bubbles in the middle...and lakes of sauce without cheese? Gee...that is what delivery already looks like.

    I'm not much of a gamer, but since Zombies took over the DOJ, it's been highly entertaining, amusing and quite terrifying in many respects. The only way to kill one is shoot 'em in the head, as George Romero's Night of the Living Dead taught us all.

    Zombies have become a major theme in movies and games lately, mainly because they are fairly safe in public opinion to kill and not feel like it's some personal attack against their specific race or position in life. GTA was innovative, but critics were always getting up in arms about "citizens" being terrorized in the game, by the player. Same with First person shooter games like call of duty. That genre of games went around shooting things but people took it too literally and took offense. With zombies as the target, there is no one to offend.

    Wait are you talking about for the army OF zombies or an army to FIGHT zombies? Cuz it's kind of an important distinction. One army tends to smell better than the other.

    my other picture before these two sounds like it's for the army against zombies

    When my wife drops our teenage daughter off at various things my wife says "make good choices" I say "remember if you see a zombie destroy the brain".

    And for some reason my daughter tells me I intimidate boys.
