I've played both Dead Risings and if the game was like 28 Days Later or Dawn of the Dead were the zombies sprinted after the humans and was heaps gory. It would make an excellent horror series. AM I RIGHT!?--Mastererium 10:48, December 14, 2010 (UTC)

But the point of this series is not to be a horror genre. The Dead Rising series claim to fame is the chance to use virtually anything as a weapon and the photography/combo weapon systems. Also, zombies are not meant to be the real enemies in the game, that belongs to the psychopaths. The zombies are just supposed to be a minor nusiance in your quest. True the Gas Zombies have changed this a bit, but they are still not a massive threat. Personally, the Dead Rising games should stay where they are in terms of horror and stick to humor and killing crazy people. FelixRodriguez 14:49, December 14, 2010 (UTC)

I agree with Felix. P.png Jax-Kenobi P.png 15:50, December 14, 2010 (UTC)
It would just be a 3rd person Left 4 Dead then. But Capcom are rumoured to be including speedy zombies (as well as slow ones) in the future Resident Evil 6, because unlike DR, that is meant to be horror. NT92 19:01, December 14, 2010 (UTC)
