5 Things | I Hate About Zombie Games

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.
