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.

I like them slow, because then they can intimidate you in numbers, but you can run through them and stuff. The fast ones can kill you by themselves, and that's not fun when you're spinning around shooting everything in sight.

used to be all about the slow zombies.

but L4D2 changed that, really doesn't matter, but now I know fast zombies can make a game fun.

Classic slow zombies are the only true enemies in a zombie game. That's why I was a bit disgusted with L4D and felt a little unsettled by the pretty entertaining Zombieland movie.

the old classic slow zombie to me is the best and the only one =P. I hate the fact that all of sudden the reanimated dead are super fast...makes no sense at all.

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.

depends.

Left 4 Dead works excellently with fast zombies.

Dead Rising works excellently with slow zombies.

In a real life zombie uprising, I'd prefer the slow ones.

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.

It depends on how they work in the game. In L4D2 I like them fast. In games like Dead Rising I like them slower.

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.

Slow zombies. I just find them creepier when they're walking around with missing limbs and slowly decomposing.

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 Like the fast shuffling ones but you have to watch out for static shock when they touch you but then again the slow angry ones are a riot.

In the movies the slow ones. If we are talking video games then the fast angry ones are for me.

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.

I love the two of them but I prefer the old shufflers. I prefer Resident Evil to Left 4 Dead and Dawn of the Dead to 28 Days Later.

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.

Wouldn't he shoot at any zombies, period? :P I would if I were him!
