How do you feel about zombies, in general?

As far as the fiction goes, I feel kind of sad of the idea of a zombie.
Losing everything you are and becoming a mere empty husk that only exists to feed on anything living, until decaying too much to move.

  • I've hated the ideas of zombies ever since I watched a friend of mine's dad play resident Evil 1 on the Playstation. That cut-scene reveal of the first zombie haunted my 8 year old self.

    I've sort of lulled myself into believing they wouldn't be a big of a threat as they seem, mainly because of mainstream media, but if it were ever to happen in real life I don't know how I'd handle it when you look at all the things other people have been posting.

  • The whole zombie-area bores me. Same shit over decades. Hundrerds of movies films games etc... never anything clever about it. Thanks that TDW doesn't focus on the zombie apocalypse that much. Sure you see a zombie every now and then but mostly it's about the interaction between people.

    I find the topic zombies rather worn-out and boring.

    That's my take on it. Really, zombies are the un-scariest monster around, simply because of their lack of speed. Like Zombieland said, once you get over the initial shock of dead people walking, its really all about the cardio.
    It was the stories/dark theme going on in the comics that really sparked my interest in them again

  • @JabbaDaHuttX7 said: Yeah, zombies are totally the least scary.

    Now, picture a werewolf from the Old World of Darkness setting... heavy as a steamroller, feared even by vampires, immune to all that vampire magic and stuff. Could probably take down at least 100 zombies at once.

    pfft...as soon as I heard of the 1st sighting.../wrists
    wouldnt even bother trying to arm-up, stock-up, nada lol...just check right the hell out

  • Zombies? Ah, I like other kinds of monsters. For the genre? I love it, because it's mainly about how the survivors will live, and what they lengths they will go to.

  • I would be more scared of a vampire then I would of a zombie. At least you can outrun and overpower a zombie, a vampire has superhuman speed, strength, and BITE.

    But, at least there’s more then one way to kill a vampire. There’s only one way way to kill a zombie: destroy the brain. Simply cutting off it’s head won’t do it.
    Werewolves would almost be as scary, seeing as how they can rip you to shreds in only a few seconds. The only real way to kill a werewolf is with silver bullets. I wouldn’t take the chance with just bashing it over the head with a silver object or stabbing it with a silver knife. Bullets are the only real way.

    So, the real winner in the monster battle would definitely be a tie between werewolves and vampires.

  • I rather be in a pit with 10 walkers and a rusty pipe than try my luck landing a wooden stake into one vampire. Within seconds he'd be all over me if he doesnt simply break my arm in mid swing and redirect the stake back into my face.
    Stronger, faster, smarter...they're like the freakin Steve Austin of the Underworld.

  • They scare me to crap. I can't play intense zombie games like resident evil or dead island. I can watch movies like shaun of the dead and zombieland. But movies like 28 days later and dawn of the dead freak me out.

    I think with this Walking Dead game the cartoony animation really helps me to be able to tolerate the goryness and spookyness. Which is great because I love the choice system which is the whole reason I'm playing it.
