Zombies Still Rule
Zombies never seem to die in video games. E3 saw a steady influx of the undead across games such as Capcom's Resident Evil 7: Biohazard and Dead Rising 4, Undead Labs' State of Decay, and Bend Studios' Days Gone. While Capcom is going back to the roots of its bestselling survival horror franchise with this latest installment, which features scares, puzzle-solving, and a new first-person perspective. Days Gone places biker Deacon St. John as a survivor in a world overrun by "freakers" (which look a lot like zombies, but are much faster and smarter) and blends some strategy with lots of shooting and blowing stuff up. It's what you would get if you crossed The Last of Us with Sons of Anarchy. And the over-the-top Dead Rising 4 (which has a cheesy spin-off Crackle movie franchise) brings back protagonist Frank West from the original game as he battles zombies in Willamette, Colorado.
