The event was planned by Facebook group Aus Gamers United and was a ghoulishly good time, scaring many passersby and hopefully Australia's Attorney Generals, if the organisers have their way.
The event's organiser, Rhys Wilson, wrote "'¦the serious reason we're putting the walk together is for the lack of an R rating for video games we have here in Aus. Someone needs to bring to attention how unfair this is to the gaming Industry and gamers ourselves. So why not us?".
The same group conducted a similar event last year, but this year's was significantly bigger. The November 2009 march had only 177 confirmed guests, and while the new rally boasted 1,123 confirmed guests, it appeared between fiver and six hundred showed up.
The "Epic Zombie March" began at Sydney's Hyde Park Fountain at 11am and ran through to 4pm. No brains were harmed, certainly at least not from playing video games, in the opinions of the organisers.
