George Romero wants to make a game, talked with Capcom

It seems that legendary zombie movie maker George A. Romero isn't just interested in movies. In an interview I conducted with him yesterday in support of his film Survival of the Dead, he admitted that he was interested in making a videogame, and that he had been approached by many companies about doing it, including Capcom.

"I'd like to do a game. I'd like to work with a gamer on it," Romero said after admitting that he doesn't play games very often, unlike fellow horror icon John Carpenter. "But everyone who has ever approached me, it's always been ... sell us your name and go home. I don't particularly want to do that."

Romero went on to say that when he was working on his eventually discarded Resident Evil movie screenplay and watching his assistant play through the game that he "had a lot of great ideas" for a game. Or at least ideas he thought would be great. "I'm not a gamer, so I don't know," he admitted. "What excites a gamer? I don't know. I think I could come up with a good story, and good situations -- places to hide sh*t ... We'll see what happens."

With the heavy social commentary in Romero's zombie films and his increasing fascination with domesticating the living dead, I think it would be interesting to see the direction a game with him behind it would take. Plus, games just don't hide sh*t well anymore.
