I couldn't agree more... it's so stupid how many retarded zombie games are on the market. I almost spewed when I read the whole "we wanted to create something new" line. How absurd. That'd be like me making a racing game and saying, "I wanted to make something new so I made a game about fast cars. But not just any fast cars... ones that WIN and beat the CHALLENGE". That's not "new" or "creative". That's just rehashing the same (successful) market as thousands of other games have.
I personally can't stand zombie crap. It's waay over saturated. Kind of like WWII games. But at the very least, don't claim to be creative or original and then announce a zombie killing game. Maybe a zombie cuddling game or a "my pet zombie" game could somehow be construed as original, but not one where you do anything violent to a zombie.
Just my two cents.
