Zombies - Whats the appeal?

#1ThierrymonPosted 4/18/2013 4:32:47 PM
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.

It makes a change from the other, different mindless killing on offer?

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...
