Zombies make for excellent cannon fodder, what with their hideous appearance, undead status, and tendency to shuffle mindlessly, so the abundance of recent zombie-related titles is unsurprising. But while games such as The Last of Us, State of Decay, and Telltale’s The Walking Dead prove the subject matter can still be exciting, they also join a marketplace already crowded with the likes of Left 4 Dead, ZombiU, Dead Rising, Dead Island, and even a second distinct Walking Dead franchise. Publishers looking to capitalize on the undead trend may soon find that, unlike zombies, gamers won’t consume the same thing forever.
