8 games that would be better with zombies

Who doesn't love zombies? Well, apart from Jill Valentine, communists and possibly the Wolfman. It's also a well known science type fact that the living dead automatically make any game they appear in amazing. And who are we to dispute scienticians? That's why we've taken some games we'd love to see stuffed full of the undead and, thanks to Photoshop, made our zombie dreams so.

Pokémon Black/White

Clearly, we're emotionally damaged hollow husks of human beings for wanting this. Be honest, though, seeing Pikachu getting his annoying larynx ripped out by a zombie Bulbasaur would be all sorts of kick-ass.

Dead or Alive: Paradise

Honestly, we're sick of looking at  nothing but sun-tanned, size four bikini models with perfect skin. Variety is the spice of the afterlife, is it not?

Cooking Mama

Sautéing carrots is fine and all. But personally, we've got a hankering to grow as virtual chefs. And what better way to broaden our make believe pallets than by learning to cook tasting BRRRRAAAAIIIINNNSSSS?

Resident Evil 5

Majinis and all that black oil rubbish blow like Moby Dick's... eh, blowhole. Swiftly moving past our lazy wordplay, Resi's rotting, shuffling sociopaths will always own our hearts.

    A zombie Ethan who never stops yelling Jason! Im holding out for him being the bad guy in Heavy Rain 2

    You Eviscerate Wigglytuff For 23 Damage! What the hell kind of elephant is not able to eat a lion?

    Do you guys just not proof-read anymore? 'Own are hearts' is cringeworthy.

    If you're going to be so pedantic as to criticize Resident Evil 5 for not having zombies, then you might as well write off the whole series. T-Virus...

    A zombie pokemon would be pretty awesome.

    The heavy rain one was utter genius. Well done! Why the hell did they not have zombie elephants in Resi 5?!? A missed opportunity me thinks, with the African setting.

    I think the Dead or Alive would suffer from zombies, but everything else would do better.

    Also, I can perfectly believe that the next Tony Hawk will be in an apocalyptic setting - all that smashed concrete and bent metal supports are perfect for hopping and shredding... says the PR guy.

    zombies are kinda worn out,and robots and army soldiers,but not westerns and japanese-styled games
  • bedelicious - July 13, 2010 2:26 p.m.

    Whoa, the DoA one kinda creeped me out o.O Otherwise yeah, zombies make everything better XD

    Red Dead Redemption is actually adding zombies in DLC this fall. I though that was what inspired the article at first

    Well, There is a cheat so everyone turns into a zombie in Skate 3........ reCAPTCHA: Mr tolerate
  • gatornation1254 - July 13, 2010 2:46 p.m.

    Zombie Pokemon=Win
  • Moondoggie1157 - July 13, 2010 2:56 p.m.

    Tony Hawk did Zombies already... And the games still went down hill. That is proof enough that the franchise is dead, actually dead, not like zombies who are undead... Agh...

    Dudes, technically Tony Hawk already had zombies. In Underground 2 when you're in New Orleans, you can 'summon' a shaman/voodoo priest/whatever you may call him and everyone in the level will turn into a zombie (save for the skaters).
  • PlainLikeVanilla - July 13, 2010 3:12 p.m.

    Zombie elephants would have even made sense in Resident Evil 5...

    "Jason was a dick anyway." Truth. Natural selection at its finest.
