    Resident Evil is a stand out icon in the zombie genre. It checks all the boxes. Viral outbreak? Check. Trapped in a building full of the undead? Check. Lots of crazy jumpscares? Check! Yet the scariest thing about the Resident Evil franchise isn't the zombies themselves, but the big corporations that caused them. Think about it for a moment. Could something like the T-Virus cause a real life zombie apocalypse? Well Theorists, sorry to burst your "it's just a game" bubble. We are well on our way there already.

                            The most nostalgia resident evil game I played is Resident Evil 5
                            Ah... I remember being sad when the main antagonist wife (or girlfriend. I forgot) became the monster zombies thingy. I love that person..
                            Also my brother is really focused on the game, and sometimes hit me when we lose.

                                                          I was showing my boyfriend this video and he demands to know in the case of the T-virus what could cause the necrosis: the decaying of flesh to be specific. I told him my thoughts but he's being unusually stubborn and I want to know how you could explain that. Honestly, I'm asking because this is super rare for him. He normally walks away from your videos excited by how clever video games and movies/TV are. He even agreed with me in the past that rabies is the perfect start to a zombie virus and yet the whole time I could see him judging the theory and he demands the necrosis to be explained.
