Zombies Throughout The Years (Resident Evil Style)

Posted by Earnest "Nex" Cavalli on Wed, Oct 15, 2008 at 1:46 PM

Resident Evil 5 should be coming soon, barring any massive delays at Capcom, so to celebrate, the Gamevideos.com people have glued together a montage looking at the evolution of the series' most prolific antagonist, the zombie.

I'm all for this video -- both zombies and Resident Evil hold a special, sticky place in my heart -- but damn if that music doesn't totally ruin the mood. You'd expect something a bit darker to accompany the hordes of undead gore junkies, and yet Gamevideos serves up the Muzak equivalent of the most generic adventure movie theme ever imagined and immediately forgotten (with a disgusted look) by John Williams.

It gets better as the video goes on, but the PlayStation years are aural torture.
