Am I the only person who thinks they should make a massive online world, that is completely interactive, with zombies, it should be based around a massive town, with all building accessable, having people actually group up in order to survive. Slots are filled for each person that would be in the society, maybe 5 people being police officers, 3 firefighters, and civillians. Those bitten would be given a day before becoming a zombie. CPU Zombies would begin the game, all having full access to all homes and shops. Guns would be available at shops, and many other items would be used for weapons... haha anyone else think this type of game should be made, a Dead Rising type feeling with multiple players. I know a few people will say that Resident Evil Outbreak would count, but i dont think it should be mission to mission, you should actually have to find a place to stay the night and barricade up in order to live through the night

Suppose to be one in the works called Exanimus. I believe its still in its Pre-Alpha stage though.

there would be unlimited amounts of CPU zombies, and they wouldnt really have to outwit you, there would be so many than eventually they could kill you. Lets say you and 3 other people are held up in a building, and you barricade the only door with bunches of crap, zombies after attacking and attacking and attack would eventually make it into the home with you

I love zombies. I just got a tattoo of a zombie bite.

Hideo Kojima said he had an idea for an online zombie survival game and I hope he finally quits MGS like he has been saying since MGS1 and goes onto a new project. Hopefully this zombie survival one. I think a zombie MMO could be done very well.

I think that no one should be able to play as zombies though (at least not as their own persistent character). Everyone has their own character and when they die they become a zombie. This zombie stays in the world until killed and slowly mutates into bigger and badder forms. You then must create a new character (so maybe not MMO) so it would be like Diablo 2 on hardcore. This way you would go through and have to fend off against the hordes of zombies and monsters that were actually once players and wwould still resemble their previous iterations to a certain extent. Also this way the zombie population would grow expontetially and could possibly even overrun the servers. Making a need for guilds to form that would hunt the zombies and such. I could go on and on about how to make a really cool zombie game online. But im lazy.....

No not really, players would be running around in massive packs, and frequently bumping into eachother - let alone staying in densley populated safe zones.. It would ruin the sense of isolation and overwhelming numbers of zombies.

I think it would be great starting of it would be slow with less zombies then people but that would be good for getting set up to hold them off. also an other class would have to be medic and builder.

I have thought this for a long time. I would love to see a zombie-MMO. One thing though, don't give the zombies superpowers like a certain zombie game. That is just stupid.
