Dead Rising 2 is the most fun I've had in a video game in years. Killing zombies with a fireworks launcher has to be the most satisfying thing I've had the pleasure of doing in a digital world. I'm so glad that zombies are becoming more and more popular with each passing year. I can remember being in highschool and not that many people were into zombie stuff like I was.
A zombie apocalypse is such a cool setting for a story, not just because of the zombies but because of the way the characters in the story react to it. It makes for some of the best drama you can find. The hardships these people go through are just so ridiculous. Not only is the world fucking up around you but the people you are trying to survive with are going nuts as well. It's so much fun to watch the struggle.
Once again we go to another list :)
Zombie things you need to own/check out if you are even slightly into zombies at all:
1. The Walking Dead comics and show
2. George A. Romero's zombie flims, notably Night, Dawn and Day of the Dead.
3. Max Brooks and his godlike novels of zombieness.
4. Dawn of the Dead remake directed by Zack Snyder, this is the best remake of any movie, period.
6. Dead Rising and Dead Rising 2, although I have to say 2 is much less difficult and better developed.
7. Resident Evil Series, not all about zombies but man are they in it. Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 4 are the must plays of this series for zombie-dom.
8. Go to a zombie walk somewhere near you, they happen in most major cities and it's awesome. People dress up as zombies and walk around a downtown area for a few hours. Can you say awesome!!
There is plenty more zombie goodness out there, that is just the best starting point in my opinion.
