Terminal Reality Creative Director Drew Haworth announced that Norman Reedus, actor in AMC’s The Walking Dead, will voice his character in the first-person shooter, The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct. The game is set to come out next year.
Man, I bet people are excited we are finally getting a Walking Dead game! Oh, wait. As far as I am concerned, Survival Instinct is unnecessary. Telltale Games’ The Walking Dead is a genius game in its own right, and an amazing adaptation of the zombie comic/television show. It did something new with the overused genre of zombie fiction, focusing on survival outside of killing zombies, such as making allies and not starving. Sadly, I fear that Survival Instinct will overshadow Telltale Games’ masterpiece. After all, we can’t get enough of those original zombie shooters!
