Combat Renovations in News Posted May 12 On 5/9/2019 at 11:18 PM, ZombiesLoveBrainiacs said: Imo Realism > Romero. A healthy human being would have a really hard time biting a chunk out of someone's neck. But for the sake of gore, a rotting corpse is somehow able to do that with ease in B-movies. Imo it's just cheesy & also doesn't result in good gameplay - it just isn't fun to survive a zombie attack only to bleed out seconds later. I guess it's an unpopular opinion, but i think the chance to die from a bite is too high as it is. If getting bitten means you're almost guaranteed to die, there's no suspense. It's also the reason why First Aid is kinda useless as a skill. TLDR: Bad injuries = fun, instant death = meh. im a huge fan of instant kill enemies like that though, for me its way more fun than just bad injuries. its a great way to punish the player for being careless against / underestimating their opponent. playing days gone on hard is one of the more fun experiences i had in recent gaming. a single infected kills you in 2-3 hits and is hard to dispatch without proper equipment, forcing you to think twice over wether youre going to enter combat or sneak past (9/10 times the better option) as well as making the game much, much more intense.
