Ah the zombie, my archnemisis. So do you guys like the super fast angry ones like in left 4 dead? Or do you prefer the classic shuffling slow hording zombies like in Dead Rising/RE ?
Me? I like the classic zombies in my games and in the films.
This topic is locked from further discussion.
This is a far fetch, but realistically [lol] I would conclude a zombie should be slow and dumb. They are the living dead, so their brain couldn't function to the capacity that they could run, jump, and climb.
But then again, a game like Left 4 Dead wouldn't be the same without its fast zombies. At the same time, slower zombies give the survivors an even greater upper hand to harm them in more creative ways. The sniper scene from the Dawn of the Dead remake? "Jay Leno" haha.
It depends. Slow zombies tend to be more durable forcing the player to take shots more carefully and plan ahead (for example conserve ammo, avoid areas where zombies are concentrated, know your exits, etc). Fast zombies though are more action oriented, they come in greater numbers and die easier. Reactions are more important and players are forced to fight since you they'll just chase you down. This can lead to some epic moments where you are forced to fend off massive hordes instead of simply being able to sidestep them like you can against slow zombies.
Overall it just depends on the game. If its intended to be an actual survival horror game slow zombies work better, while action games with horror elements (like left 4 dead) are better off with the running ones.
Me too. I like Borderlands' Zombie Island zombies. Some kinda stand around and walk all slow.. some run at you. And then there are special types. The one with the chest attached and chained to its back is really cool. The zombies in Left 4 Dead are awesome too, while the common infected kinda just run at you, the special zombies really stand out and make for some diverse gameplay, especially in versus mode. Resident Evil 1 and Resident Evil Code Veronica zombies are classic. They have to be my most favorite.
Ahhh.... the old classic slow zombies. Love them.goldwarrior32
Sometimes I prefer them slower, othertimes I prefer them at super human speed. If they're fast it's pretty damn scary and really gets the adrenaline pumping, but if they're slow you can enact a zombie slaying massacre without having to worry too much about getting your ears bitten off.
I didn't voted because which one I like depends on the game.
I cannot imagine L4D with slow zombies, nor Dead Rising with fast zombies.
Resident Evil REmake for the GC was excellent, it had slow zombies that turned in really fast-angry zombies when you less expected. Great remake.
Definitely the classic shuffling ones. They're just more zombie like. And if you think about it, under real physical terms, the fast ones are speedy walking rotting corpses, so if they're running around, it's more likely chunks of them will fall off or out of them xDD which would be an inconvenience to them lol.
So if a zombie knocked at your door you would let it in but if it was a nazi zombie you would start shooting it.....:? Wouldn't he shoot at any zombies, period? :P I would if I were him!
