How long until zombie games die and stay buried?

I like zombies... but not as much as I used to. They were much more fun when they were a rarity, playing the original Resident Evil games was a treat matched by little else. Now they've done the whole fad thing and have become a total joke.

It seems to me that iPhone games are 90% dead flesh and 10% innovation, it can't possibly last forever (can it?) so let's get the bets in on when they'll die, permanently.

Yeah, when I play a game, I want to kill something that isn't already dead.

For example: Human, bagder, criminal etc etc.

I don't know what it is, but I still love beating and shooting the bastards.

Sounds like a win/win situation, we get to put all those hours of hardcore training to the test

I wouldn't really blame a dev for taking the zombie route to be honest, it's obvious they still sell so they must have their fans... it's just that now their fanbase includes 7-year olds and emo kids.

Anyhow, I'm off to play Resident Evil 2.

Ask my shotgun in a week or so. Then the Werewolf plague begins, hopefully after the Vampires and Demons. Hope everyone packed a wooden crossbow, silver shell casings, and lots of blessed Garlic and Holy Hand Grenades
