Hey rabhoy67 welcome aboard!

Most of us have read the comics. I don't know if you have or not. But I can say without spoiling that the cause of this whole mess has not been revealed. Yet. You'll just have to hang in there with the rest of us and find out. It's bugging me too! I thought we were getting close for a while there but that was derailed!

I don't know what it is either as I've never read the comics, but I say government conspiracy. See Dead Rising 2 video game. :)

Really? Its so fun! Its very hard, I agree. You have to come to terms with the fact that you cant do everything, save everyone, etc. which makes it hard to play because I HAVE to do everything in a game or the OCD kicks in . . . heheh

I think what I love about this forum so much is the freedom. This started out a a discussion about how the plaque started and has rolled into video game talked, lol...love it!! I know some forums where this thread would have been closed already amd messages handed out about keeping topics on track.


My guess doesn't involve government conspiracies...I figure if this thing is toppling governments its probably not theirs. I'm guessing some sort of effed up rabies strain or something along those lines that was out of control before our leaders were aware of wtf was going on. Don't rip me too bad if I am out to lunch I have not read the GN's.

Robert Kirkman said in an interview he won't reveal the cause of the outbreak.

IGN Comics: Last issue, we saw the survivors take the first steps towards investigating the zombies and maybe trying to figure out what causes someone to become a zombie. Do you have any intention of ever explaining what caused the zombie outbreak?

Kirkman: I really don't. I think that what the book has going for it right now is a sense of realism, if that makes sense. There are a lot of girls reading the books and stuff, and I get a lot of female readers and people who don't read comics and don't read superhero comics. And so if you take away the zombies from the Walking Dead, it's really just an accessible story about people's lives in an extreme situation. And I feel that if you were to sit down and say, you know, a space spore landed on Earth and infected a bunch of people…There's no explanation for the zombies that doesn't push you further into the realm of science fiction, and I feel like it would kind of kill the believability, as odd as that sounds for a book about a bunch of dead people walking around.

The original Dawn of the Dead is my personal favorite of all zombi movies i have seen. Although i do think it would have been better if the original scripts ending had been used instead of the rewrite.

Back to video games. did any of the people saying that they hate Dead Rising 2 play the first one? I loved the first one, havent played 2 yet...

I love Left 4 Dead, although not many people enjoy that.

Maybe the outbreak started because of some infection or something, like the government messing about with something? Hmm!

I don't think the writer even knows.

I figure he is playing it by ear.

When the story needs to come to an end or a new series is in the making than we will find out.

That is my take.

My far out guess and what I would like to see, Al-liens.

The virus is intelligent, host thing.
