And how long is that? L4D came out way back in '08. The Walking Dead came to TV in 2010. After that, the zombie niche grew into a full on popular culture phenomenon. That's when hipsters like me who liked zombies before it was cool started to turn our noses up at the idea.
The problem is that zombies are like nazis these days- sometimes they are even zombie nazis, that's how bad it's got- in that they are used as just a generic enemy that everyone can safely kill, maim and dismember without feeling a shred of guilt. Along the way, writers and creators have utterly forgotten what it was that made reanimated corpses such a compelling antagonist, and there's no need to even try rediscover what that was because there will always be a legion of cunts who buy anything vaguely zombie related regardless.
