'what...the fuck...is wrong with you'
but zombies are a lot scarier when they can run aren't they?
unless im slotting in the dialogue with something it isn't from.
when they're done right, it's like the endless, inevitable, oncoming march of death. No matter how fast you run, or how well you hide, it's coming, they're coming, you're never going to escape. They will get you.
but fast zombies are all like blllllargggghh in your face bro'
no personality, nothing distinctive about them, you could dress them up as anything and have the same effect
its fun. its fun to blow big bloody holes in people without feeling guilty. the zombies are basically nazi's in that situation, but without the guns. not scary, just acceptable to slaughter on a vast scale
you could replace them with graphics of any generic alien monstrosity and sell the game off with pretty much the exact same experience
but i like to think of it more as the classic George Romero ghoul
if you were shooting tentacles off a starfish alien, you wouldnt get near as much satisfaction as you would firing a shotgun at a zombie torso and tearing it asunder. OR SOMETHING
