I recently read a blog post called How Gamers will survive a zombie apocalypse written by Kim from Later Levels. It gave me an idea for this blog post.
If there is something I have learnt about from gaming it is most definitely the most efficient ways to survive hoards of zombies. Whether this be mutant zombie animals similar to Fallout or your plain jane infected zombies from Call Of Duty.
So first step to every zombie apolocalpyse- 1) Stock up.
If you’re going to survive the end of the world you will need supplies. One thing Fallout taught me is that generally there is a use for everything. Whether that is making armour, using it to help build your sanctuary or there may be someone else who needs it and you can bargain to get what you benefit from. But also be careful with space, only pick up what you can carry and if that means sacrificing one of your 34 scrap for a rare medicine it has to be done.
2) Sleep at night. Who doesn’t love looking at the clear night sky filled with stars hey? Zombies that’s who so stop staring at the sky and go to bed cause they will not care how pretty it is. As most games have shown, night-time is when it hits the fan. Minecraft is a perfect example of this. The worst of the bunch will come out and fighting zombies with minimal torches isn’t the best idea in the world. Not only that but if you can sleep at night you will be perfectly recovered for all the zombie killing the morning.
3) Anything can make a weapon. If you find yourself stumped with the poorest shotgun which takes forevverrrr to reload then just bash some zombies in the head it’s just as easy. Speed Cola unfortunately isn’t a thing in the human world.
4) Trust no one– while playing Skyrim i’ve learnt its better to not try to please everyone and just do as i will. If you try and please everyone then there is more people to worry about and sooner or later you may have to sacrifice people for their goods. Or because they’ve turned on you.
5) Animals make good attackers Far Cry Primal allows you to have as many attack animals as possible. They are super handy when trying to sneak up on a kill, and if you think about it, they won’t feel bad killing a zombie who so happened to be your neighbour or what not. Not only that but who wouldn’t be scared of someone with a pet tiger?
These were just a few ideas, but have you learnt anything else from gaming?
