Plants Vs. Zombies Puts Your Gardening Geek Skills to Use

We’ve all heard the expression “patient as a saint,” but why doesn’t anyone ever say “patient as a plant” or “patient as a zombie?” They’re both slow-moving and pretty single-minded about where their nutrients come from.

As a human being, you may never have considered the possibility of choosing a side — plant or zombie — if a war between the two were ever to take place. Most people don’t think zombies are even real until a horde of rotting, groaning undead show up on their doorstep in search of that single “nutrient” to which I alluded above: brains!

And what good are plants in battle, anyway? Well, in a world where even corpses can’t catch a break from the daily grind, try and keep an open mind and assume that anything is possible.

In PopCap’s smash hit game Plants Vs. Zombies, you play the part of a human being who is under attack by endless waves of zombies. Luckily, your years of pre-apocalypse gardening geekery pay off because you’re able to defend your home against the onslaught with 49 different plants that have the ability to weaken, slow down, confuse, and outright obliterate your zombie nemeses before they can reach you.

GMO crops may be unpopular with many these days, but in this case, they may just save your life!
