Like I just don't understand how people can still make zombie games nowadays and still choose to do ABSOLUTELY NOTHING NEW OR INTERESTING with them. The premise of a zombie game is already completely outdated and boring. If you, for some reason, HAVE to do something with zombies, you need to do something new.

Literally nothing in that trailer shows that they are doing anything interesting or new with the concept. I am totally baffled

I think what could have been cool was if normal zombies was just there. Dangerous, but essentially cannon fodder. They can be stopped by pretty much all obstacles. But zombie animals? Zombies with the strength and senses of animals? Those were the ones to look out for. Hopefully the wolves and bears will serve as something like that. I want a game where you end up in a zoo, which turns out is the most dangerous place ever, as the animals could break out at any second.

I think that could be really interesting...

So someone finally made a game out of those weird painted pictures of robots chilling out in old timey countrysides? Interesting.

Yes, but also someone was also already doing that.

Hey so that 4chan guy (or at least someone pretending to be them) who leaked that display card thing for Nintendo's E3 playable game booths is back with what's allegedly the rest of them. No idea if this is actually the same person and I'm sure you can pick it apart piece by piece to see if it's real or not (the original picture is shaping up to be legit by now) but hey, if you wanna speculate and/or do something this morning (or afternoon/evening wherever you are?) then enjoy this picture.

Again that's just the games you can play on show floor. The Direct will likely have a bunch of games in trailer-only format.

I'm tempted to pin the seemingly endless success of boring-rear end zombie poo poo on children. As the kids who played the last crop of zombie games age out of them, younger kids are picking up the new ones. It's all I can think of to explain why people still get away with making completely uninventive zombie games. Surely they're not a huge deal in the precious 18-30 demo or whatever, right?

Anecdotally I've known several moms who won't let their kid play games where you just flat-out shoot people, but killing zombies or other human-shaped monsters was acceptable. That kind of attitude could be a contributor to the genre's popularity with children, but I'm no market researcher

There's also a popular Disney channel movie (maybe movies, I don't know) about singing zombies. They're no longer just a plot device or symbolic of anything, they're an aesthetic like "pirate" or "knight" and can be sold to us as children and/or adults.

Turtle Rock is somehow not ultra dead after the miserable failure that was Evolve, so the possibility remains. Of course Valve is busy going insane so probability on the other hand is low.

A hush falls over the PC show as the lights are dimmed. A very special guest is announced. Rising from the floor is Gaben, holding up three fingers. The tension in the air is palpable as he prepares to speak.
