    Zombie babies?

    So I was playing 7DTD and I kept hearing that baby cries that you hear from the ambient music. So I thought to myself, Ok how about this for a new zombie type. How about have a baby zombie. It will stand still crying and if it sees you it will start running at you at the speed of a rabbit or faster and it will have to ability to jump too. Though it will only spawn in places where it can't easily be shot at like in buildings or forests. I think it would be a nice addition to the game. Also at night they can wander around crying. They will be able to jump about 2-3 blocks high. What do all you guys think about this?

    We all have to do things we don't like in our life. Shooting zombie babies would be something that we would be faced with in a zombie apocalypse, as well as shooting loved ones and friends that had been turned into zombies, and other people of humanity as well. It'd be a freakish nightmare but you'd have to do it, whether or not you like it, to survive.

    On a second note, I like this post. New enemy, zombie babies. +1

    Great idea. Although it seems like it would be a bit overpowered being able to jump that high. And I'm sure you meant this, but it would probably be a bit better if it was a toddler.

    I agree with the toddler part, but the mention of babies reminded me of The Stick of Truth, South Park game, Nazi Zombie Fetuses. xD

    Anyone remember Fallout how the game had to remove kids from the game leaving only chat boxes appearing randomly in the game? Anyone also remember Portal 2 where there was a big situation over how Glados was making fun of adopted kids?

    My opinion on the matter... let's not, just for the sake of preventing stupidity from happening. Then again... it probably would get more ppl to buy the game, lol.

    It's only humane to shoot zombie infants/babies! They're suffering. D;

    Crazed media stories fuelling the idea that video games turns people in to murderers is so completely false on so many levels that games shouldn't be afraid to do something because of it.

    With another reference to South Park- their episode on 'murder porn' where the kids become worried that their parents will turn in to murderers due to all the gory, re-enacted murder scenes in reality/factual crime documentary/dramas adults watch on tv. It's a really interesting take on the 'gore=violent criminal' debate where the roles are reversed. Good ol' South Park

    Anyway, back to the killer babies... I think that's quite an interesting suggestion which would provide a horror aspect to the game. There's plenty of horror games the use babies/toddlers/children as scary creatures out to kill you and it's incredibly frightening. More frightening than an adult trying to eat my brains! There's something incredibly eery about hearing a child cry in the right atmosphere...

    Yeah now I think about it a toddler might be a little better considering its still scary and more realistic in abilities I have suggested. Though honestly I dont see a problem with it since many games have had zombie children and zombie babies. For example Dead space 2, It had mutated zombie like children and even babies that exploded. It also adds more of a shock value to the game considering how even thoughts that something viewed as pure innocence can be succumbed to the infection. I think 2-3 blocks would be fair becuase regular zombies can already climb up a single block. So yeah id love to see a form of this idea in the game.

    Alright, what about instead of kids - have midgets! Dwarves - Not the lord of the rings kind. I mean the game of thrones kind!

    Creepy circus midgets!!

    Not a fan of creepy circus baby midget super-jumping zombies. If something even vaguely resembling this makes it into the game I'm going to be crying into my pillow at night.

    Call me politically correct, call me whatever you like. I'm just looking at this objectively.

    But I don't think having killable babies in any video game is a sensible idea. I believe it's a quick way to get your game banned in some countries in the world (Australia, is a high possibility).
    Children I can understand, there's a lot of them in the world and for the game "realistic" approach to be taken seriously, it should be considered that they could be added to the game. But you have to remember, there's a reason you can't kill them in MANY (not all) video games.

    So, I'm not against zombie children in the game, but zombie babies... No. I remember seeing them in Dead Space and I just didn't feel it was necessary, it felt like it was added for "shock" value. You can argue realism all you want, but at the end of the day, folks won't care when they ban games from countries.

    Don't take what I'm saying the wrong way, I'm just trying to look at this from a realistic perspective of it being added to the game, okay?

    Would be a great idea for a special infected imagine it like Dead Space (obviously without the tentacles...or maybe with :P) but like some tiny baby thing jumping on walls trying kill you maybe it jumps on your head like a jockey in Left for Dead and there is some sort of quick time even to knock it off.

    Don't even joke about a quick time event. Bad Brendy. BAD.
