Oh Zombies I love you but I need a break.

Zombies, everyone loves them! I mean who doesn't? Whats more fun than shooting them in the head and watch brains spill out in a red ooze. Its fun to kill them but I'm now kind of getting very close to being burnt out by them, but was soon refreshed thanks to another game. Mainly because of these 2 games I about to get burnt out but the third game really outshines them both: 
 
1. Resident Evil 5 
RE5 is like the friend that you don't talk to in months but when you two get together you have a great time. For some odd reason this is one of those games that I never seem to get bored with which is surprising for me because after about sinking over 30 hours in the game killing majini just never seems to get old for me. IIts the mercenaries mode that really kept me coming back though. For me it really represented how I always thought a Resident Evil game should be, intense. Sadly the co-op is definitely get in the way of things a little but I still enjoy gunning down a chainsaw-weilding majini in the head then I run up to him and punch him in the face followed by a nice kick in the face by Sheva.
 
2. Left 4 Dead 
I'm not really a big fan of the first one but because my brother was home for Thanksgiving he really wanted to play it so badly. However me and him had to play splitscreen due to the fact he wasn't to familiar to the game itself. I really don't care for splitscreen that much because it really brings down the framerate of this game and makes a bit choppy in spots. He didn't want to play with others online for some odd reason just him and me, I'm sure that we had great bonding moments thoughout so I was pretty glad that I played it with him. 
 
3. Left 4 Dead 2 
Left 4 Dead 2 is the best zombie game I have played in a long time. This game is what I really wanted the first one to be, the game definitely is much more unpredictable and more frantic thanks to the addition of new characters, items, weapons, and special infected. It really invigorated my interest in the game with the new campaigns and feels more connected to each other rather than placing them in a random situation. Favorite character is Ellis hands down! It makes me laugh when he tell us about the story about how his buddy Keith living in a graveyard for whole year it wasn't a dare or nuthin but he got kicked out of  his house...and you get the point. However the mode that is my favorite is the Scavenge Mode. It seems simple enough being stuck in a small map and have the survivors get these canisters in order to fill up the generator to add more time to the time limit while your opponents are playing the special infected trying to stop you from filling the generator up. This mode is intense when you play the survivors and so much fun when you play the infected. One game we actually used up the whole 40 seconds in order to plan ahead which canisters we are going to get. Even then we still lost but thats what happens when randomly join a bunch of guys that aren't your friends. 
 
L4D2 is one of those games I wished I had bought instead of rented at blockbuster. Although once I return the game back to blockbuster I'm definitely taking a break from any game that has zombies in them. I mean I enjoy killing them but I need a break. So I think I'm going to purchase the The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition on Steam. I never really played a real point and click game since Sam and Max but I think I'll give it a shot. 
 
Random Question: Am I the only person in the world that hasn't bought Modern Warfare 2? I'm not boycotting it but I put it on my Christmas list so I'll have to hope that I get on Christmas. Its sad because my friends list pretty much goes Modern Warfare 2,  Modern Warfare 2,  Modern Warfare 2, Netflix,  Modern Warfare 2, and  Modern Warfare 2.

That's it, I'm calling it, Valve is the only one allowed to keep making zombie video games...sorry Brad.

Nope, I'm with you there.  Though, I did already play through it.  But at least we can sit here and sulk together about the fact that we don't get to play the multiplayer.

Resident Evil 5 has no zombies.

Edited by Yummylee

Serious? I still love me some zombies! To me the borderlands expansion was better than the original game just because of that fact. 
 
Also i havent got modern warfare 2 either. Not so fussed with FPS' and Uncharted 2 is easily keeping my competitive streak at bay 8)

The only companies that can make zombie games from now on are Valve and Capcom. No one else.

I beg to differ.

@End_Boss: Only if their game is good.

I've yet to see a really good game featuring masses of traditional style zombies. Therefore, there are not enough zombie games. Also, no. Dead Rising is not a good game.

Zombies are still cool with me. I try not to let the Bombcast crew's opinion of everything instantly become my own opinion.(It happens sometimes though).

Most likely if I do pick up borderlands my mind will be refreshed and will more than happlily buy the expansion.

Well its nice to know I'm not the only person in the world that doesn't like Dead Rising.

@Wildfire570: PopCap can continue to make Plants vs. Zombies. Resident Evil can continue to use regular zombies. Dead Rising I guess can, too. Hopefully they make a better game this time around.
 
I love a good Zombie game and Brad can shove it. As much as heart L4D2, Valve is not the only developer who gets to use Zombies.
