I love stories regardless of what package they come in. If the story is good I will read, play, watch it or whatever the medium requires. That said I do not read as much as I would like, though I do love to write sometimes and if the book is good I wiz through that thing as fast as possible.
Zombies are not the problem. Well unless we are talking fast movers, then you are fucked (Left 4 Dead, prime example). The real problem is people loosing their shit. Start killing eachother, and generally turning into monsters themselves. Try to survive on your own, and then the only person that can betray you... is yourself. </deep>
