If there’s one genre of game out there that really needs to be taken down a peg, it’s zombie games. Slow and dumb AI is met with overdone jump scares that really aren’t impressing anyone out there. Whether you’re going it alone, as in the Resident Evil series, or team up with a group of survivors, via the Left 4 Dead games, there’s nothing more tedious than having to deal with an onslaught of never-ending undead enemies. If all that wasn’t enough, you have to deal with the campy and underdeveloped stories in these games as well. With that, let’s go over the 5 Things I hate about zombie games.
A lot of games that involve the living dead are pretty lax about the rules that come with a zombie apocalypse. Specifically, that when you are bitten by a zombie, even just a little bit, you’re going to be one of them pretty quickly. One game this year took this concept and turned itself not only into one of the more realistic zombie survival games, but one of my favorites of the entire year.

One of the most highly anticipated Wii U launch titles, ZombiU was not quite what some people were expecting. Depending upon what you might’ve been hoping for from the zombie shooter, you could either have been delightfully surprised or a little disappointed. Since the release, the game has seen mixed reviews, but is that due to the quality of the game or mismatched expectations?
