Hard Project: Zombies
I love zombie fiction. I absolutely hate most video games that feature zombies. And there's a good reason for that, largely stemming from the fact that the two bear only the slightest connection to one another. Let it not be said that you do not have your options for zombie games if you want them.

Bam, now the song's in your head. Maybe. Full disclosure, I am bored to death of zombies, but I think there's a good reason for it. It's a "horror" genre that hasn't just been milked dry but used for wholly irrelevant purposes over and over. At this point, ironically, zombies are a shambling husk; no one is doing anything new with the concept, we're just seeing the same handful of things over and over again. It's Venom in the mid-90s, a neat concept that's been so overused that no matter how great your concept might be you should let it lie for a few years just to give people some time to breathe. Since we are in October (or, as I like to call it, Halloween), it seemed like an appropriate time to talk about what a hard project these little goombas are, categorically. Not that I think we'll see an end to the huge pile of crappy zombie-based games for a while. Sony Online Entertainment is still pushing H1Z1, and if that seems like anything shy of a wholly unnecessary extension... At any rate. Enjoy!
