Impressions of Contagion


Picked up Contagion again and I have to say it's made it into the circulation of games I regularly play. I know plenty of you are tired of zombie games, but this game is one that taps into the roots of the genre, making it both fresh and unique.

Quote:
Contagion is a solid title that oozes personality and has the chops to stand on its own. Itís like Left 4 Dead and Resident Evil 2 had a baby, creating something simultaneously fun and terrifying. I love the hell out of this game. Itís probably the closest you can come to being in The Walking Dead sans the profuse sweating, body odor, and constant fear of meeting a horrible end. If thatís not worth your money, I donít know what is!
Full post here. Monochrome also has a contest up on their Facebook page where you can win four copies of the game.

It has a few rough edges but overall is a solid game. The PvP hunted mode is my favorite.

I don't think I will ever get tired of zombie games, as long as they are well made and not a crazy FPS all the time. I like how games such as State of Decay and Dead State are able to add more of a RPG angle to it. Now I have to go check out Contagion....

Yeah, that's mine too, despite being terrible at it. Really like this game. It's come a long way.

Except RE has a story. Well, a single player story. I'd love more zombie killing but, I don't need another multi-player only game.

Hell, I wish they're turn L4D into a single player experience.

I can dig that. But it doesn't make Contagion any less fun!

Even if many are tired of what's currently out there, the zombie genre isn't going away. You see, we've become so political correct/sensitive about VIRTUAL violence that if your game involves killing humans, you get a free no-drama pass if it entails killing the undead kind.

So the current state of things leaves us mostly shooting up zombies and aliens. We'll probably encounter aliens before the year 2100, and then we'll have to reconsider filling them full of virtual holes once that too becomes politically incorrect/a sensitive subject.

But zombie games will power on. :-) Looking forward to Left 4 Dead 10.

p.s. -- this game looks rad, and I didn't know about it until just now. I probably skipped media posts about it thinking it was Plague Inc.
