WarZ being on that list and there's no rage!? Horrible, horrible people. I think it's ran by Zombies actually.

No, I hate zombies. In the past I hated zombies because they were just tossed into good games when they ran out of actual ideas. I remember actually pounding my fist on the table while playing Theif2, a follow up to one of the most awesome games ever, and I see a horde of zombies; "Zombies!?", rage quit. I really don't think I played much further as zombies became an attempt at furthering the plot line. I don't play games where I steal to see zombies any more than I would a flight sim with zombies.

Left For Dead 1/2 were great, but you have to admit that LFD2 was a copy of the movie Zombieland that we got to play through. Besides that, kill all zombie games...the trend has ran it's course and should be left for filler so that we can see when the developer ran out of actual plots. See a zombie? Bad game.

All the follow ups during the zombie fad were just after gore and following what Walking Dead laid out for them. Once Walking Dead is done, so be the Zombie games. Even the Walking Dead games suck! Why can't there be more thinkers that make awesome games that last forever like HL or Bioshock. Either one of those games can be fired up today and still very playable. No more HL, but after the Bioshock ending in Infinate...I'm not sure if they have another either (If there is, it took a great story teller to do so).

But zombies!? No...

I have to admit that I did have fun with Left for Dead, but only when the other players were team players and not a bunch of Rambos. I didn't bother with LFD2 because it would be just more of the same with different weapons. So, to sum it up...zombies have run their course with me and I wouldn't be interested in playing zombie killer any more.

Left for Dead & Killing Floor are really games for fun and i enjoyed them well. Some other games are also good.
