Evolution of Zombies
Safe havens would be occupied by men who had themselves turned into monsters driven by their primal urges in this apocalyptic environment. Image via Spoiler TV.
Could it be mother nature culling humanity or the next evolutionary step? Zombies have always been popular in video games, particularly since the rise of the PlayStation in and the consoles that followed. They lend themselves well to first-person shooter games thanks to a little something known as the 'jump scare'.
The current generation of consoles are more realistic and immersive than ever before and there is a heavy leaning on the story telling element of games. The game follows a young teenage girl, Ellie, who is immune to zombies—their bites and spores having no effect—and her protector, Joel, as they journey to a science facility in order to cure humanity. Interestingly, the zombies seem to be being controlled by some form of fungus you have to look out for spores, and a particularly nasty zombie breed known as clickers which have a very peculiar fungal problem protruding from their heads.
Ophiocordyceps unilateralis is a type of insect-pathogenising fungus.

The fungus infects ants and alters their behavioural patterns. The infected ant will leave the nest and find an area with a temperature and humidity suitable for fungal growth. Just think of how quickly the flu spreads. However, the closest virus baring a resemblance to zombie-symptoms is rabies, affecting the brain and central nervous system. But it moves too slowly for it to be the cause of mass violent blood lust it can take years for the virus to even reach your brain. A tamer but no less dangerous beast—only the danger is done to themselves.
