@Video_Game_King: They totally die, at least in the first two. Right? I mean I don't think you ever see it, but I assumed they had died off screen and come back.

@Brodehouse: Which, again is totally fine. If they called these things like, "cocooners" or something else, since that's an awful name, I'd be totally cool. I just have severe linguistic obsessions, and it just strikes me as odd that Capcom, who, from the differences between 1-3 and 4-5, seemed to also use the word "zombie" specifically, have gone this path. I don't know. Maybe it's just me.
@MooseyMcMan: I know. And I liked that. They didn't act like zombies, so they didn't call them zombies. I was happy with that way of dealing with it.
@The_Laughing_Man: I've always taken "zombie" to mean a Romero style zombie. I don't consider the things in 28 Days Later or Left 4 Dead to be zombies. To me, zombie means something has died and come back to life, it's moving slowly, and you can only kill it by shooting it's head. Other mechanics are fine, but if these "zombies" can run and use weapons, then what is the distinction between them and the Las Plagas infected from RE4?
Then why can they run? And why can they use weapons? That's not like, a thing that "zombies" can do.
So my real question is, do you think that Capcom is saying "Zombies" but just breaking all the rules, or is there going to be a twist that they are actually infected, or some other kind of different thing?
