if the viruses in the resident evil game keep evolving, then why haven't they evolved to make the zombies faster?

The virus keeps the host alive by attaching itself to the brain of its host and taking over the bodily functions, and can't expand outside the brain

Because of this, is never gets the chance to affect speed

im no expert on the lore of Resident Evil, but i think it's the eventual overwhelming of zombies.

idk about that, it was one of the key plot elements of 28 days later, the fact that the zombies could outrun them (whether they were living or not) complicated things a good deal (more so in 28 weeks later)

But they do. The victim is only a zombie for a few hours, then they turn into crimson heads which are fast as fuck, then turn into lickers who can also climb on walls and shit. Something like 1 in 1000 infected will turn into a tyrant instead, who are also fast as shit as well as being about 8 foot tall. Hunters and similar BOWs are clear evidence that even the earliest forms of the T virus could create extremely agile creatures under the right conditions.

Holy shit, I know way too much about Resident Evil.

First of all, I reject 28 weeks later as a sequel to 28 days later. That "sequel" is a fucking parasite to one of the greatest movies ever. Second of, the infected in 28 days later aren't exactly zombies. So you can't really compare.

It would be a bit of a slow process, wouldn't you agree?

Because then the game would be too difficult. Imagine a realistic game: you die, and that's it, you have to buy a new game. That would suck wouldn't it?

The previous games had something like that, you die, and right there it ends, no respawning or anything. You just start over.

They didn't put that much thought into it.

Seriously, they were probably just like "let's make a zombie game"! Backstory: supervirus.
The details were filled in later.

Nemesis was a massive project to try and make a tyrant while still keeping most of the victim's intelligence. There's some big ass parasite in it's spine or something that helps umbrella keep it controlled.

Resident Evil 4 was a completely unrelated parasite. Each victim had to be manually injected with an egg which gradually took control. I guess no one else reads those in-game files.

I read everything in RE4, best game in the series IMO, though it might as well have been a stand-alone game. If they didn't throw in a few characters from the other games in the mix, like Character & Ada, it wouldn't have had anything at all to do with the rest of the series. :/

The Resident Evil story and continuity is too convoluted to be understood anymore.

That was la Plaga.

That shit was pretty cool. I was pleased to see that the ganados were the main enemy in Resident Evil: Damnation. They should have had a gigante in there somewhere, though. I hope they make another movie.

Fuck that, PC players need it too. Wanna keep that 2,000 dollar liquid cooled gaming rig? Best be careful.

600 dollar playstation? 600 dollars worth of shrapnel in the wall and your friends kneecap. Shit would be awesome.

It doesn't need to evolve if the immune system isn't strong enough to resist it or become immune to it fast enough before you become a zombie, especialy if all it takes is for a zombie to bite you or a infectious gas to turn you into one in just a few minutes

Because of common evolution - the virus spreads really well as is, so there is no pressure for worse versions (slow zombies) to die out and be replaced by better versions (fast zombies.)

Therefore, no pressure = no evolution, and we have slow zombies.


Good.
