I like both, but it depends on the lore behind the fast zombies. If they have the same origin as slow zombies would (dead or risen from the dead) then I laugh a little bit at dead bodies that can move like that. However, if its just an infection or something like that then fast zombies can be cool.
Slow! I think fast zombies are dumb. I think it is because I grew with the slow moving zombie movies. Although it doesn't make much sense to me decomposing marathon athletes.
Me too, also, fast zombies are annoying as hell to encounter in video games.
I like both. I prefer slow zombies, they're classic and i find them more scary when used properly, they can build up tension and atmosphere really well.
Fast zombies (though i prefer when they're just rage infected guys) are also cool, they're more threatening and dangerious clearly, however they arent that great for tension, more of an action movie zombie.
Like i said in another thread. Slow zombies = Alien. Fast zombies = Aliens. Both are good in their own ways.
i have two zombie friends one is fast and it is a totally pain trying to keep up with him. the other is slow and she takes forever to get anywhere so i would really like to meet and become friends with a zombie who is in between that would be perfect.
The terror of zombies isn't that they're deadly in one on one encounters, but that there is an endless horde of them that never ends. That's what ultimately makes them scary. Just an endless human wave of cannon fodder. If you want to live, you have to run, except eventually there would be nowhere left to run.
Fast zombies can run and chase you down, but that's not scary. That's tag.
Slow. The whole point of zombies is a menacing thing on the periphery that is only a direct threat if you get entirely surrounded by them or wish to pass through a tight space that has some of them in it.
They used to be about tension more so than active threat.
@falserelic: Sure but their speed/danger is ratcheted up considerably because all the other zombies are slow/ your player was designed to face mostly slower enemies.
Also. Man does GC remake still look amazing.
Indeed it doe's, looks better then some current gen games...
Slow, because I refuse to call sprinters "Zombies". They're infected. Not reanimated dead. Reanimated dead lack enough motor control for sprinting, climbing, etc, because they died and parts start to atrophy pretty much immediately.
I don't mind them (heck, I enjoy L4D), but they're not zombles.
Man, I wish Off The Record worked for me without lagging horribly...2 is fun and all but no sandboxes around.
