Zombies, those undead little fuckers from hell that seem to bring people such enjoyment. Why is it that zombies are so great? Is it that they can not only scare the shit out of but also make you laugh your ass off. Zombies come in so many different shapes and sizes. They are in one word: awesome. Honestly zombie movies though a lot of times corny are still awesome. Shaun of the Dead, hilarious, The 28 days/weeks movies pretty good. Evil Dead and Army of Darkness Awesome as well as Day/Dawn of the Dead, Planet Terror, and Black Sheep to name a few. (for those of you that haven't seen black sheep its about zombie sheep.) Zombies in video games genius. Left 4 Dead, Resident Evil, Dead Rising, Dead Space, Half Life 2 not a zombie game but has zombies in it.
In both movies and games zombies are one of the only things that will scare your face off and make you laugh until you pee. Though disgusting, decomposing, asses they are awesome. In my opinion making a zombie game can never go wrong, unless its Resident Evil 4 or 5 then it can but that's only because of shitty controls. I own Left 4 Dead and love it how can running around shooting Zombies not be fun. Dead Rising, a mall full of tons of stuff all used for beating zombies brains out. The half life zombies are really creepy and mostly dumb but not always. And today I am proud to say that I played Plants vs. Zombies and it is amazing. You plant well plants that are weapons and you protect your house from zombies. You got tons of different plants along with a ton of different zombie types it was some of the most fun I'd had playing a game and that surprised me. Though I did play it while at work so that probably had something to do with it. Zombies I tell ya you can't go wrong with zombies.
The various types of zombies depending on who made the game or wrote the movie. You've got those god damn fast zombies like L4D hunters and the zombies in the 28 days/weeks later movies. You've got the classic stumble around really dumb zombies that don't really fight back. The weird alien zombies from Resident Evil 4 and 5 and Half Life 2. And all the other ones in between.
Out of all the zombie games Left 4 Dead is hands down my favorite I can play it for days and not get sick of it its truly an amazing game. And Shaun of the Dead and Planet Terror are two of my all time favorite movies. Zombies, all they ask for is your brain and honestly is that too much? I think not. read
