What is zombie games?
First you need to find out who these zombie are? Because most of us have only a general idea about them.
The inhabitants of Haiti, from whose folklore came the concept of "zombies", and did not assume that their fictional monster would gain such popularity. At its core, a zombie represents a corpse that came to life after death and gained the ability to walk, kill people, to eat their brains.
