If you know me, you know I love zombies, zombie books, movies and games and well, just the other day I found out about another new zombie game coming out that's looking pretty good,

State Of Decay, love the name, its a single player zombie survival game but the company that's making it wanted to make it a multi-player game, so this might just be a start of something great,

the ideas there going with are some that I have had for a long time and am excited to see in a game, its to bad that its single player but I'm still more excited for this game then any other coming out around the same time but I was just as excited for Dead Island so we'll see how things go but gah, can't wait, this game looks like a lot of fun, a lot of sleepless nights!

When I first saw footage of the game, I immediately thought Day-Z.

I remember seeing trailers and footages of this game a short while back and thought it was pretty cool. Like you, I really like zombie related games, movies, books, comics, TV shows, etc. They may try something like a multiplayer co-op, similar to Left 4 Dead 2. Thanks for the YouTube links!

Yeah, depending how just how big they make this single player game, (Where they could ruin this game) this game could become one of my most favorite game of the year, I mean, I hope they have a map as big or nearly as big as DayZ's map but given large companies, they just barely like to give you a game, that they only want to do just enough to grab that cash, the gaming market is quickly becoming a zombie gaming market, zombies seem to be the theme this time around, this game looks great and I can't wait but any zombie game that comes out any time soon now, is going to have a lot stack against it, its the game that goes above and beyond that'll stay on top and become "They Zombie Game" I mean I love that their really starting to pay attention to zombies but I hope one or two of them have more love for the zombie then the money, even as unlikely that'll be I can't wait for DayZ, WarZ and State Of Decay to come out!

I see this game going one of two ways,

One, The game is released and the large open world and large amount of content will keep you busy and entertained for hours on end, endless things you can do to improve your base, able to have many camps, many many weapons both melee and guns, hours of just exploring, endless replayablity.

or

Two, The game has just enough of every thing to call it self a zombie survival game, limited to one camp, limited in what you can do to your camp, once you get to a point you'll never have to worry about zombies over running your camp, guns and weapons between the two there might be 50, if that or possibly they'll limit a lot of things and gouge you for more money with DLCs that don't really add enough to consider them an DLC or addon to the game but you still want more of the game so you spend the money for DLCs anyways.

Like Dead Island, this game has a good chance of being so great or crash and burn, I wouldn't say Dead Island did just that crash and burn but it could of been so much better.

The graphic in the trailer look poor, not sure why since this used the CryEngine 3 engine.

Probably because the map is going to be rather large a lot to render, probably more then twice as big as any Crysis map, if not larger, at least I'd hope, that's the reason.

If you want better graphics, check out DayZ, better graphics but currently its a mod for Arma 2 and is in alpha so it does not have half the features seen in the trailer for State Of Decay but, the creator of the mod is going to be releasing a stand alone game of DayZ which should come out this year, I've heard a game play video of the stand alone game of DayZ is being uploaded now or something to that effect, though I will say, DayZ is not for the light gamer, even some what heavy gamer might have an issue picking it up because the game tried to be as realistic as possible, "Tries"

The stand alone game of DayZ is suppose to be using the Arma 3 engine, which that game has not even been released yet so hopefully the engine is even better, might even get even better graphics, who knows, in any case, DayZ, the stand alone game, is one of the games I look forward to the most but State Of Decay, its up there, neck and neck with the stand alone game of DayZ.

There is also another game that's more or less a rip off of DayZ, called WarZ, there is already game play video out there of it, its more main stream, not as realistic but a game I'm sure I'll be getting when its released.

Damm right, I've been playing zombie games ever sense the first zombie mod for counter strike came out or sense half life, the first one came out if you wanna call those zombies, I love other apocalypse games just about as much, Metro 2013 was loads of fun and I can't wait for the second one to come out, Metro Last Light, there is already trailers for it if you haven't seen them, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iCVREJyyZWA

Also, here is the links to the other zombie games I listed,
