There's nothing inherently wrong with the zombie genre. Compared to military shooters, zombie games are still relatively fresh. The problem is that developers are focusing on the wrong elements of zombie fiction. Zombie fiction isn't about heavily-armed badasses killing wave after wave of zombies. It's about normal people trying to cope with the breakdown of society and the end of civilization as they know it. Watch any zombie movie and that's what you'll see. What you won't see is Rambo vs Zombies, which is basically what all zombie games have been thus far. They haven't explored any of the interesting elements of zombie fiction, like infection, survival, human interaction and ambiguous moral choices. Dead State is the only game that looks to incorporate these aspects and as such, I'm really looking forward to it.

If you haven't already, you should really check out PCGamer's recent preview of Dead State:

The official forum also has some very interesting info:,11.0.html
Totally agree. The reasons you listed are why I like zombie movies so much. I like to imagine myself there and what I'd do. How better to do that than in an interactive form with a game. Yet we get zombie waves. I'll have to check out that Dead State preview.
