It’s no secret here that I love video games, is it?
I mean, I’d LIKE to keep it a secret, but only because I feel that admitting that I sit around the house eating chicken pot pie in my underwear while playing Call Of Duty till 2A.M. has never been the catalyst I thought it would to facilitate getting me laid.
Anyway, on top of being a video game fan, I am also a huge fan of the horror genre. I love ALL horror, but if forced to pick my favorite type, I’d have to go with ‘zombie survival’ horror. The original Dawn of the Dead still scares the heebie-jeebies outta me.
So, what could possibly be better than EITHER video games OR zombies?
That’s easy…. Video games ABOUT zombies!
I’ve played just about every zombie game ever made…… from Left for Dead, to the Resident Evil games, to just about everything in between.
So, it should come as no surprise that when the trailer for the upcoming video game, DEAD ISLAND, went viral last week, I was all over it. I am so stoked for this game that my pants are tight with undead-excitement!
Anyway, the trailer has caused as much ‘controversy’ as it has ‘hoopla’. Plenty of people have expressed concern over the violent depiction of the girl in the video, condemning it as a form of child abuse.
It’s a very adult theme, I’ll admit, but I for one think it’s pretty stylish and really makes you wake up and take notice, which, I’m sure, was the developer’s intent.
So far noticeably absent from the raging internet debate has been any representatives from the Zombie Defamation League. I mean, there’s only 1 child affected in the video below, but DOZENS of the living-impaired are irrevocably injured, both physically and emotionally, by the callous actions of the humans in the clip.
I, for one, am OUTRAGED at this egregious, zombie-harming, behavior.
Anyway, like I said, I’m a bit biased when it comes to this sort of thing.. what you do all think?
