    Zombie sharks and monkeys. Not enough zombie animals in games. I want to run from an outbreak in a zoo. Elephants, lions. I want horror. I would also like an over-the-shoulder camera, a night mechanic, more longevity to my breakable weapons, better driving… I think an important thing is to be allowed to have multiple side quests activated. It was annoying to have to go and return to go back out again. I want to be allowed to put up the missing posters around town while I am doing other quests. It just wastes a lot of time.

      Those are some damn good wants. I want weapon breakableness to make more sense. A crowbar should last the entire game. A steel baseball bat, a piece of galvanized pipe with a valve on it. These things should last a lot longer. I was really hoping for the sequel to be massive. Something like, a massively long game where you travel the country trying to survive. Also how about some more likeable characters that actually mean something to me.

      I am all for zombie sharks, so long as they have laser beams attached to their heads, and I also want the monkeys to fling infected poo at you.

    This is one of my favorite games and cannot wait for the sequel. Infected animals would definitely be cool.
