Ok, I've had this idea for a while.

Why not put you in the shoes of the enemy. I'm talking about controlling eight or nine enemies at a time and trying to stop the good guys for once.

Imagine the scenario. You (a group of 8-9 Zombies) are tasked with the mission to take down the Hero. Like most games, each room will be a level or area and each time you will have a chance to flank the Hero who has all the guns and grenades you'd expect in a game featuring guns and grenades. The Zombies (in this case YOU) will only have pitchforks to attack with.

I also thought it would be a good idea to choose a formation before each wave of attack just like a football game.

The other defining feature would be that the Zombies die a lot quicker then the Hero and he has the ability to use health potions. Some of the Strategy would stem from You (the 8-9 Zombies) stopping the Hero from getting to the Health Potions and other power ups.

The best way for the game to work would be in third person like X-com or Pikmin.

Oh no I'm dead. WAIT. He is dead. I am bad but alive!

Imagine how refreshing it would be to take down the Hero for a change. Being the bad guy is more interesting and would be a breath of fresh air to gaming.

Just to let you know, and I'm not trying to be mean in anyway, don't take it the wrong way.

If you post threads consecutively. The mods will start locking some down.

Is there a block on creativity. When I signed up I didn't know I was limited to a few posts per week.

Until I am told by the staff not to post or that I have posted to much, I will continue to post my thoughts and reply to fellow gamers. Until they tell me to:

Report to your commanding officer for court martial!

I will continue to post. When they tell me to:

To be fair, there is no rule about creating too much posts. As long as the topic isn't spammy and everyone keeps on the topic, it should be fine.

My questions is, what's the different between this, and lets say XCOM? Seems similar but with a different perspective (you as the "bad" guys)

There is a HL2 mod called Zombie Master which already did this.

I'm pretty sure the ZombiU multiplayer mode was this, just no pitchforks.

#13 Posted by Willza92 (258 posts) -

I love the picture of the pitchfork. The idea is sound (if not entirely unoriginal) as long as you include someone actually playing the "good guy" and they also have a fun time with the "atmospheric shooter".

This kind of reminds me of Dead Space 2 multiplayer, which in turn reminds me of L4D versus mode, you need to describe more to us so we might get a better understanding as to where you are coming from thus providing more thoughtful conversation other than "STOLE IT LOL" and "that's already been done."

In saying that @spoonman671, @breadfan and myself are going to put together a crack specialist team to steal your idea from your top secret vault.

@breadfan: @willza92: Sorry guys, this genre has gotten way too crowded in the past two hours. I'm going to go make a sci-fi shooter instead.
