Soooo you nearly got eaten by a bear eh?

Anyways, great article! Very interesting read... However, I have to disagree about 'running and hiding' being the best course of action against zombies and the like - just like our ancestors whom paved the way to our capabilities of civilisation today, I think that, equipped with a good, diamond sword, sturdy iron armour and plenty of 'medical' supplies, a player in Minecraft can fight off the zombies, skeletons and creepers, at least temporarily. Much like how things have turned out in the real world, our unique ability to create complex tools and craft the landscape to our will allows players in Minecraft to have a distinct advantage to those creatures in the dark - whatever happens, we know that, at the very least, our intelligence is superior to whatever creatures nature throws at us.

Fighting zombies with friends is were the real action is at =D

For example on the Un-offical Escapist Minecraft server Escapecraft

Good article though, a very interesting read :)

Is this article a repeat? I could have sworn I've read this one like two months back.

All you need is plenty of arrows, some sturdy armour, and a big-ass wall with a couple of arrow-slits.
Let the Undead come, I am prepared!

It's a "best of" issue. So, yes.
