Here's a new trailer
offering "a raw, unedited, roughly 10 minute" (actually more like eight minute)
gameplay trailer from DayZ, Bohemia Interactive's upcoming standalone
game based on the DayZ Arma II modification (thanks
The Escapist). Here's word:
Been a while so here is a raw, unedited,
roughly 10 minute gameplay video taken after spawning into a multiplayer test
today. This is pre-alpha footage, so it makes no effort to mask the variety of
bugs. Our whole focus is on getting the alpha out, which means focusing on
Multiplayer (server) performance. Enjoy and see you soon!

Laugh. You realize that you ask for hard numbers...they're given...and you continue to try to refute them with a single months or years old bit of data, right? The season's viewership is down 25 percent in just a few weeks. That puts it lower than where the last season ended... But when it doesn't go your way...suddenly it's not applicable or the fault of the writers. Gotcha.
Regardless, you're going to continue wasting time with straw men, as in your silly FPS argument (a genre with a 20 year steady track record), so I think we're done. You won. Zombies are the new pinnacle of media (ignoring historical data and cyclical trends since they first hit pop culture). Thank you for enlightening me. In 18-24 months, you're welcome to come back and make me eat crow over the continuing thriving state of zombies in media. But we both know that won't be the case.
Sorry, my mistake, I didn't realize that writing had no bearing on a show's ratings. My bad. Yes, the declining ratings have absolutely nothing to do with the fact that the first four episodes of this season have been relatively uneventful and slow, with 90% of the show taking place inside the prison where a bunch of random characters that nobody cares about slowly die of sickness.
Your argument relies solely on the fact that the Walking Dead ratings have declined since the (record-breaking) season premiere. My argument relies on numerous facts, such as:
1) The Walking Dead TV season premiere had the highest ratings the show has ever had. 2) The Walking Dead game series is by far the most successful series Telltale has ever made, selling over 21 million episodes and garnering many GotY awards. 3) The second season of the Walking Dead game series is coming out soon and will very likely be just as popular as the first season. 4) MS paid good money to Capcom to make Dead Rising 3 an Xbone exclusive. 5) WB is paying good money to Techland to make Dying Light. 6) State of Decay is the fastest-selling game on XBLA, has sold over a million copies, was recently ported to PC (where it was in the top 10 for weeks) and is about to get to new DLC. 7) Resident Evil 6 is the best-selling RE game and one of Capcom's best-selling games of all time. 8) Indies continue to pump out zombie games.
None of these facts show a downward trend. They show the opposite. Will zombies still be as popular in two years? Maybe, maybe not. I'm pretty sure DayZ will be out before then, though.
