Dead Rising
The idea for Dead Rising came about while Resident Evil 4 was under development. Keiji Inafune, lead developer for the series, was concerned that the idea of traditional slow zombies would die out, as the zombies in Resident Evil 4 were now able to run, use weapons, and talk. He wanted to create a game in which the slow zombie type was more prominent than any other character in the game.
