8 games that would be better with zombies

Dance Central

Note: if you're a developer who wants to shift your shitty looking Kinect dance game to punters, don't try to sell it to them by getting one of your employees to bust a horrendously awkward move. Instead, leave it to the pros. Namely, Jacko in all his thrilling (undead pun possibly intended) clobber.


There aren't enough zombie elephants in games. 'Nuff said.

The next Tony Hawk

Because, frankly, why the hell not? The Birdman has seemingly tried everything else to save his flagging franchise. Jackass and Ride's 100 buck board sure as shit didn't do the trick, so we say give zombies a crack. Just think how much more tense it would be trying to pull off kickflips and 720s if you had extreme undead Americans trying to bite off your ollieing ankle.

Heavy Rain

The world's most miserable game is clearly in need of the kind of big, fat fun injection only zombies can provide. And we think filling its mall level full of the living challenged (Dead Rising-style) would make Ethan Mars' mopey adventure 72% more awesome.

Jason was a dick anyway.

    They're should be a trophy for killing zombies with the Winchester. Anyone who's seen Shaun of the Dead will understand

    Luigi VS Undead Wario: ..whilst clad in a red leather Devil May Cry jacket Mario rescues Princess Peach from a horde of zombie Toad clone things.

    @Ampatent Wish you did some research before you embarrassed yourself. The T-Virus re-animated the dead to create the "living dead" aka Zombies.

    Resident evil is really stupid now there are parasites. back in resident evil 123 and code veronica and the breakout files they were the best its turned from a survival horror that would scare the living pants out of ya to parasites that use guns to kill ya its not right. old resident evil game were totally better some people were scared to go through a door because of what was on the other side but now its just stupid it doesesnt really scare you. BRING BACK RESIDENT EVIL ZOMBIES!!!!!!!

    People that go around promoting zombies and ninjas in uncalle for situations are only trying to promote their own 'off the wall', 'I'm cool with camp horror', 'I'm aware of trash cinema' stigmas... It's old news people.

    Micheal Jackson, you spelt "Jugular" incorrectly. Good article overall but I don't think DoA needs zombies...yet.

    EVERY game would be better with zombies. And I smiled at the heavy Rain one :D
  • EnragedTortoise1 - July 14, 2010 2:21 a.m.

    Holy crap that picture of Togepi made me laugh so hard!
  • Clovin64 - July 13, 2010 11:09 p.m.

    Argh! Thanks for once again reminding me that Resi 5 would have been a far better game with hoards and hoards of zombies instead of crappy manjini or whatever the hell they're called. Zombie Elephants would have been nice as well. Are you listening Capcom? Bring back zombies for Resi 6! P.S. "Jason? JAY-SON! JEH-SON! JASON!" I should make that my ringtone or something.

    NO! No more zombies! I'm so tired of zombies! I got up this morning and within an hour I had seen this very article, a Window 7 ad about a zombie documentary, and a news article about Red Dead getting zombie DLC. This has got to stop!
