From the Walking Dead to Plants vs. Zombies, we nerds seem to have an obsession with the Undead. It's particularly prevalent during the Halloween season, but there is a subset of nerd culture that bathes in zombie media all year round.
Why is this?
Do we have an innate desire to kill things?
Does unloading a shotgun into a zombie satisfy that need, without the pesky guilt that would accompany shooting an actual living person?
I'm not really sure. There must be a deeper reason.
