I've been meaning to post this for a while now. I've been playing Left for Dead quite a bit lately and thought to myself why are zombies more popular than ever these days? You only have to look at some recent films (28 Days/Weeks Later, Diary of the Dead, Land of the Dead), TV shows (DeadSet) and games (Dead Rising, Resident Evil, Left 4 Dead, COD5:WAW) to see the impact they have had. Is it because they appeal to our primitive instincts in someway? The need to feed, being single minded in one pursuit to hunt down the living/uninfected etc? For me personally, I like the idea of the survivors doing everything humanly possible to escape from such overwhelming odds. I much prefer the new faster zombies as well as it ramps up the tension and action. What are your views?
