We’ve been following Dead Island ever since they released that ultra-depressing (and controversial) trailer of the little girl zombie getting thrown out of the window.  And while we were originally hoping that the game would take on the same gut-wrenching emotional tone set by that video, we must admit Dead Island has shaped up to be a must-play zombie shooter.  Set in a gorgeous open world paradise, Dead Island will test your zombie apocalypse survivor instincts as you scrounge the island’s resources to craft weapons of undead destruction.  Dead Island drops on September 9 for the PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.  Are you planning on playing?  Let us know what you’re most excited about in the comments below.
