A lot of people talk about how they would totally survive a zombie outbreak, so now's your chance to get an idea of how well you'd do: are you a zombie hunter or a walking steak?

There are 52 questions, each with an answer and explanation at the end of the quiz, as well as a comprehensive breakdown of your stats, ranging from physical condition to emotional state.

Hope you all enjoy and that there aren't too many typos. :P

<+>Thanks everyone for the praise and criticism! I appreciate that you're enjoying yourself with my little quiz and that your analytical eyes aren't rusty.
<+>My first award! Daily Second Place! Thanks everybody!
<+>Zombie Survival Quiz broke the 4.0 mark! WHOO!
<+>ZSQ has made the front page! Thanks!
<+>I fixed the preloader...not sure why I didn't do it earlier...

<!>On a more distressing note, I'd like to formally say that I do not want this flash game to be hosted on any site other than without my permission, please. Thank you.

<!>Development on v2 of Zombie Survival Quiz is underway. The things I'm planning on adding/improving will blow this one out of the water.

A few of the gripes people had======================

<~>"X" is wrong or dumb.
<A> I can't discuss every little problem you may have had, but I can ask you to read the explanation's if you haven't already. Stop sending me messages please.

<~>Your model of a zombie is wrong.
<A>I chose a specific zombie "lore" that seemed most logical to me and had a broad and reasonably accurate base of fiction and information sources (such as The Zombie Survival Guide and World War Z). If I tried to cover all the bases, I'd end up with a 500 question quiz that is wishy-washy between different "styles" of zombies, making it very confusing and muddled.

my only complaint is the horse part as you cant park a horse and it could easily be killed by zombies

It's a neat little quiz, but open to being highly inaccurate. Some things like Zombie knowledge are purely speculation, yet effect your score. We've never had zombies so there's no way to tell what kind of behavior they could develop for example. But nonetheless, it seems to be a fun little quiz. Just don't use it on a resume! :P

Physical A, Mental B, experience B, and emotional F... guess thats pretty right. love the answer "set yourself on fire and hit you with the hatchet" probably that what i would do in real life. why not?

Sorry, this didn't do any favours for me.

Most questions require right or wrong answers, sometimes forcing you to choose the answer that you wouldn't or couldn't do. Also, I'm fairly certain that the overall calculation for the score is bogus. Despite answering with logical answers, I still managed to receive an F rating for experience. Oh no, I know how to kill a zombie and protect myself, so that means I deserve an F?

Here's another example. During question nineteen, you select where you live out of the given options. At the end, the game states that a rural community is the best because there are less people. So, if you pick anywhere else, your score gets lowered, even if you ACTUALLY live there. Why? Also, how can a hospital be the worst place to go to during an outbreak? Surely if somebody answered with the aforementioned rural community, then that makes it okay because less people!

There is no cure for a zombie bite? There aren't any zombies to even back up that statement. Asking if anybody is there inside a building is a terrible idea, because other people might hear you and shoot you on sight. Making explosives isn't a skill that everyone should learn to be honest. They're loud, people and zombies will be alerted due to the noise and they're a pain to get a hold of let alone make.

While wearing baggy and/or revealing clothes can be grabbed easily, that won't be going through many people's heads, and will just wear whatever. Riding horses is completely out of the question because of how loud they are. Plus, most people have cars. Knives have short reach but are a hell of a lot easier to find than a damn katana. I wouldn't say question 37 really had a best answer.

Schools are definitely not the best places to fortify. I'm sticking with gated malls. At least they have half decent supplies. Zombies do not run? Several games say over wise. Same goes with zombies bringing others back to life.

I don't hate this quiz, I just think it's very, VERY inaccurate. Effort was put in at least, but still, not for me.
