Zombies are fast becoming the 'it' genre in gaming. While I love that the attention brings more games for me to play, it also brings bad games... and god forbid, bad players too.
Left 4 Dead, awesome game, loved it to bits. But I felt it was missing something 'real'. Yes I know zombies aren't real, but I mean some seriousness, some real world wit. None of this "Boom Headshot" crap I see too much of these days.

Fort Zombie is a perfect example of what I need. 'Just wow' is the best description I can muster.
The underlying mechanics of this game are pure and enjoyable. Mostly because it's got the balls to show that 'You' are not god. Go check it out it really is simply amazing.

(If you mock it or any other game for its lack of graphics, you should leave now, before you get yourself hurt)

Dead State is another game that I deem awesome. It hasn't been released yet, but from what I have seen released in screenshots and discussed amongst everyone on their forums, this is going to be epic. Like the second coming epic.

Go check it out at DoubleBear Productions.

Another game I recently played that is killing it according to my view is Project Zomboid. This game is only in alpha, but you can already see a clean polish in their work. The dynamics are pure and ballsy. 

Go check out my full review here on Desura. (Page 5 for those who actually look)

Ya'll have fun now, you hear? Peace.

Hi,
I replied to your PM a while back. Is the problem with ATRPG solved now?

Thanks for your patience.

Tried Fort Zombie, and it was horrible at first, but wish they did more to it. Also the Moderators or devs were really immature to the forum posters about the game and received no help.

Had great ideas, but too bad the people who made it didn't treat it like a potential game :(. Looking forward to a completed Dead state and Project Zomboid.

I agree that the Developers approached their fan base/game/customers with a serious lack of maturity. But the game itself I found to have great underlying tones. Finding survivors, Building a fort, dying easy, bad aim, fuel usage; the list goes on.

Graphics and Developers aside, I really wish the bugs and game play in this game were polished more. Sad to see such a wonderful idea and concept go down the drain due to what I deem to be minor problems; problems that could have been fixed with just a touch of love.

I’m constantly finding myself so ridiculously excited for Dead State. And thanks for your thoughts mate, I always appreciate a good ol' chit chat.

Well I'm here now. So bring forth your offerings of worth and sacrifice; excluding your women.
