The Walking Dead TV Show 10 million viewers a week

How do you feel about whats posted below. Take it from my point of view. Larger Networks have tried and failed to hit sucess with the same numbers as this. Major newworks expand contracts for shows that have 3-5 million.

Let alone a massive impressive 10 million viewers a week. That's more then almost virtually every other show other there. The show was created on AMC of all channels. You wouldn't expect it to be this big of it.

I think it will boost tell tale games. People are interested and that drives products made off this up. It's just wild. I never a lesser known network take on this game of viewership without it being on a well known major well known place.

    There are a billion zombie shooters, and even games that didn't originally have anything to do with zombies have had DLC/expansions which add zombies to them.

    Seriously, what's the deal?

    It's on a roll right now and it sells, so yeah, everyone's cashing in.

  • The problem is, we're kinda seeing a resurgence of what happened with WW2 games - people are getting sick of them, myself included. And I haven't even played any of the damn things!

    I keep waiting for the bubble to burst, but it never seems to. One day though...

    +1.

    Yes, but why?

    I'd rather kill aliens than zombies. By aliens, I mean sci-fi style aliens (eg. Crysis, Halo, etc.) not disgusting horror-movie aliens.


    Come to think of it, that's probably one of the reasons why I never liked Half-Life.

  • @Chyron8472 said: Yes, but why?

    Honestly, I blame vampires.

    Twilight and True Blood (and before then, Anne Rice) brought about a strong trend of vampires in popular culture. But many people can't stand the overly brooding, sleek, goth, sexualized, fetishistic version of vampires so there was a backlash. And, when it comes to horror monsters, what's the tonally opposite of vampires? Disgusting, ravenous, mindless, flesh eating zombies.

    I also agree that The Walking Dead, specifically, is not about zombies. It's about people surviving an extinction event. The zombies could have easily been replaced with a nuclear war, a plague or...triffids. The only reason it's zombies instead is to make the situation more visceral and horror-themed.

  • I want a game where you battle fishmen and mermaids.

    You realize that genre's been done to death too, yeah?

  • I hate zombie stuff and I think the show is absolutely spectacular. Because it's not about zombies at all. Hate Dawn of the Dead, Night of the Living Dead, etc and all those cult zombie classics. All the games, game add-ons, whatever. But Walking Dead is absolutely different (not the game, I don't like Telltale's Walking Dead).

    The only zombie game I like is "I MAED A GAM3 W1TH Z0MBIES 1N IT!!!1".

    Well, at least the aliens can look different and have different motivations and shit.

    Zombies are zombies. They're always rotting corpses. The only difference seems to be how fast they move and whether they're after brains or just flesh in general. And whether or not there's "super" zombies.

    Yes, this.
