I've only played a demo of the game. I need to buy it sometime soon, it really does look amazing. Won Game of the Year at the VGAs too.

Speaking of the VGAs, it was so predictable. Walking Dead won GoTY, Halo 4 for Xbox GoTY, Journey for PS3, and Super Mario Bros U for Wii/Wii U GoTY.

I think the show's fantastic. This current season is probably the best one yet.

I think it's kind of amazing such a show exists. Zombie movies are all kind of the same, so for a show to exist in the first place, let alone for several seasons, it's either because they've done something new with it or that zombies are just the next big thing since teen vampires and teen wizards.

    I got the Walking Dead game and even though I read spoilers about the end of the game.... I felt a tear down my eye as the final moments of one of the characters was shot.

    I've heard the game is incredibly sad yea.

    @Scarf: Yea, it's not your standard zombie movie/show. The show focuses on the relationships and the characters as they deal with the threat of zombies. It's not about them trying to stop/cure the world ala Resident Evil with Wesker and the like; it's about survival.

    Woot, Resident Evil. Is it sad that I still have hopes for the franchise after RE6? I mean... it wasn't bad. But they totally went off the horror bit.

    And dear lord, is The Walking Dead game that sad? I have to get my hands on it. D;

    Resident Evil used to be about survival.

    Then Capcom decided to milk the series.

    Eugh the Walking Dead, I'm still playing through the game and my gosh is it scary.
    I actually feel so sorry for the people who died during the game.

      I haven't seen any of it either. Or Game of Thrones. Or any of the other big shows going on right now.

      I've never watched the show but I've read every comic it's based on. Definitely recommend them if you don't feel like watching the show!

        And people have been wishing for more survival horror games like the old Resident Evil games, but once we've got ZombiU, which was what the fans have been craving for, it got panned by U.S. critics for not being able to shoot zombies like in the recent Resident Evil games.

          It was well below freezing where I was at last week, the game room was literally an ice box so I could forget about playing my beloved Dead Space 2 Severed in there without feeling my hands freeze over.

          Well, first person shooter isn't exactly what I had in mind when I was thinking of old Resident Evil era survival horror.

          That said, if I ever get a WiiU, I'll give it a try. I just need to wait until the cost goes down or when Nintendo realizes how big console memory storage is supposed to be these days (32 GB is not big, try again).

          The only horror game I own is Amnesia and I will never ever play it. I even have my own category for it in Steam:

          Old Resident Evil wouldn't be for you then. The Gamecube remake of the first game is one of my favorite games ever, but it still wouldn't be for you. You've got a big mansion with more hallways than what is necessary for any architectural structure, crawling with zombies, zombie dogs, biologically engineered horrors, ammo and health is scarce (especially on harder difficulties) and there's also puzzles. There's also a fair amount of backtracking through said mansion filled with horrors if you do things incorrectly. And in the gamecube remake, we have Crimson Heads.

          Also:

          "...itchy...tasty...."

          I used to get really paranoid by watching documentaries about things that kill people. I used to be really scared of spiders after I watched a documentary on them.

          ...then I go to a Fear Factor live show and they pull a prank with a fake african bird-eating spider. I think I almost cried that day.
