Definitely, one of the biggest questions in surviving a zombie apocalypse is whether or not to have friends and companions. Having more people around you has its benefits and drawbacks, but overall, is it worth it? There are two main schools of thought on this issue.
On one hand, it seems like a good idea to be in a group. Safety in numbers is a pretty strong argument, especially if you are hopelessly outnumbered by a groaning, groping zombie horde. It's easier to set up ambushes, your zombie killing strategies can be more epic, and let's face it, more people around you means more people that can be between you and the incoming zombie swarm.
Fighting the undead in groups doesn't come without its drawbacks, though. There's always that awkward moment when you have to kill your best friend or girlfriend because they got bit. Seeking out established groups also has its risks, especially if there are ladies in your group. They could find themselves being drafted into a repopulation program that would be highly illegal if society still existed.
It might seem that being a lone wolf in the zombie apocalypse may be better. Fewer chances of heartbreak. No one to slow you down. You get all the Twinkies to yourself. There are some flaws to this approach, though.
If you're a loner and you're cornered, that's it, game over. There won't be anyone to stand guard while you sleep. There won't be the freshly bit volunteer to slow down the zombie mass to ensure your escape. No one sees how awesome your last kill was.
What do you think is better for surviving the zombie apocalypse, being alone or in groups?
