  3. Zombies - Whats the appeal?
2 years ago#1
I tried playing zombies again after Mob of the Dead was released (i havent played since WaW zombies) but I just cant see where the fun comes from.

The game mode seems pretty popular so i was just wondering where the appeal is and whether its something I am missing. The zombies are not fun/satisfying to shoot at all (bullet sponges that just conga towards you), and there is no real randomisation to keep it interesting.

Is there something i am not seeing in my limited time with the game mode?

Cheers!

Its worth noting that i do love me some Zombie slaying. Some of my favourite games include dead rising, left 4 dead and dead island.

Honestly, if it weren't for my friends, I wouldn't enjoy it at all.

However, a night of sitting back, drinking and laughing with them makes it easily the most entertaining gameplay type ever, for me.

MP was fun for the first 2-3 months that I was able to tolerate the lag compensation, but now I play it very sparingly. I played the MP maps from the first DLC a grand total of about eight times (altogether, not each) and have yet to touch the ones for this new DLC.

Zombies is the sole reason I keep this game and, currently, the sole reason I still have a 360.

Honestly, I feel like most games these days are obnoxiously crappy*. :/


*Because GameFAQs doesn't allow a better adjective.

Some people need weak AI to make them feel better when the human players become too much for them.

The same appeal as feeding a Pac-Man or Galaga machine. I swear, kids...
