[Original] A Gamer’s Guide To Zombies!

If I had to choose two things I love the most, I’d probably pick zombies and pretty pictures. Give me a zombie picture book and I am in heaven. Lately, I’ve found myself thinking about what would happen if I were to combine my two loves, so eventually I decided to answer that burning question. After I did some research and spent a night slaving away over a hot keyboard, because a few hours of heavy Photoshoppery turns my laptop into a scalding hot demon machine that incinerates flesh while roaring like a freight train — yeah, I’m in the market for a new computer — and Voilà! I had myself a fancy (read: gritty, bloody) infographic.

We like zombies here at Bloody Disgusting, and we’re also pretty fond of informative jpegs. If you are too, I highly recommend aiming your mouse pointer on the Read More link below so you can get a dose of both!

    Don’t get me wrong I love me some Minecraft but why is it in the history of undead. Other then that good article.

      I know it’s not a straight up zombie game, but to me, Minecraft is very much a survival horror game. People disagree with me, they call me crazy, mad, brilliant, Swedish… but you’re trying to survive, building a safe place, finding resources, etc. If you look at it that way Minecraft is actually a pretty amazing zombie game.

      Or maybe I’m just crazy.

        I’m pretty sure you’re crazy but you do make a good point.

    Haha I could so see that image as a sticker on a zombie game at my local game store. This needs to get Offical so we veterans could help the casuals in their confusion ! 😀

    Btw I got curious after looking at this diagram, have you or have you not played “Killing Floor”? It’s available on Steam and it’s so much fun! Kinda a combination of Counterstrike, Left For Dead 2 and GoW Horde mode! It Def got all three kinds types of zombies in one game 😀

      Thanks! I have played Killing Floor, though it’s been a while. Several of these games have zombies from multiple categories (Resident Evil 6, for example) so I tried to take the type it’s more known for.

    Nice job! I’ve been looking at it and realized that modern circle landed up with worst games by far lol.

  • BadCrumbs

    Zombie Ate My Neighbors is the best zombie game ever.

  • Joe-Banger

    That is a cool graph. Im playing SAS: Zombie assault 3 and Zombie Lane on Face Book! More awesome zombie games!

  • ThunderDragoon

    That is so awesome, Adam. I love it. Amazing job.
