Instead of zombie games why not Demon games?

Demons >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Zombies
When it comes to being scary.

Zombies can only run\walk and moan that's it.

B**** please
Demons have no limits.

In games like quake and doom the "zombie" enemies was the least of your worries.

Zombies can be overcome. There's a sense of possibility about them, because A) certain kinds of 'zombie' are real, and B) they represent pretty simple ingrained fears: predators and disease.

Demons are complicated.

The religious baggage that come along with Demons is probably why we don't see them as much any more.

They have no boundaries so their configuration is unlimited.
From hell, another dimension (reality), a planet, to here on earth.

Zombies do not.
Zombies stop being scary after the first few games back in the day (resident evil 2, resident evil remake)

Demons bring on a whole new flavor because the flavor doesn't have to be the same.

That's a really good point.

If you're gonna do demons, I would want something psychological, and less actiony. A game in the style of heavy rain where you deal with demonic possession would be pretty sweet.

Meh, I don't know. Demons are just monsters to me, no more scary than Gears' Locust. Put them in a possession movie and that's unnerving, but usually only because those films put children at risk, usually young girls.
