Re: Staff Blog: Why I Love Zombie Games

Zombie game affectionado here

Been playing zombie games a good long time. Bought Resident Evil and been playing 'em ever since. I think for me it's fun to have a guilt-free enemy to kill.
Don't get me wrong, it's not like I feel a pang of guilt about stabbing some bastard attached to a huge set of sideburns in the jugular and I definitely don't feel guilty about introducing noobs to the contents of my shotgun in multiplayer. But you can brag about killing zombies to just about anyone you know who plays games and maybe even some friends who don't play vidya (although if you do decide to disclose to people how many virtual undead you've killed in the most obscene of ways, do make sure they are aware of how messed up you are and don't expect to be praised for it either :P)

You can't save zombies, you can't reason with them and they just want to eat you. You have every reason to kill them, and more, since you'll be putting the person they once were to rest/protecting the world from their menace/charging into a horde of them with a huge parasol.

But I will agree with Kaostic; they do often make me panic in games. Despite them being shambling, noisy, stinking, moaning corpses they do manage to get the drop on almost any protagonist at some point
