What would you do in I am Legend

Post by zombieslayr112 » Sat Feb 23, 2008 5:13 pm

Thanks for reading, just wondering, what would you do differently in a scenario such as the movie regarding a home, hunting, defences or anything.

Sorry about the spelling

I'd want to determine who Legand was first of all.

Umm...kind of broad. Narrow it down a bit. What would I do differently? What would I do the same? What would YOU do? Different weapons, preparations, faithful animal companions? Are you asking me if I would hunt deer in Times Square and talk to mannequins?

Present a more detailed scenario, or I'm afraid heckling will ensue.

I would have gotten out of Dodge long ago. Manhattan lives or dies on nick-of -time food delivery schedules. A pandemic would most certainly disrupt that schedule, and you would be really hard pressed to find food after. There would be little point in foraging about in apartments, most of the food would be gone. Canned goods? Just ask the city dwellers on this board how popular they are amongst the more genteel population. Most grocery stores keep fresh veggies, less so canned.

Guns and ammo? There's two stores in lower Manhattan, with very little of either. Liability, ya know. A few boxes of rifle ammo at most. Post-ban mags, a mix of pistol ammo and that's about it. The one uptown store is Berretta's, more like a gun library with rows of Perazzi's, Browning Superposeds, and other obscure single shot trap guns. Plenty of #7 1/2 shot and orange clays, if that's what you want. The sun never set in NY.

No, don't hold back, tell us what you really think!

Anyway. if it was me in the movie, I'd have driven a Ferrari Enzo instead of that Mustang and a Hummer instead of the Expedition... apart from that, mostly the same.

First of all, if I was a supposedly intelligent and educated guy, my family would have been the hell out of there LONG before "Oh no, I think it's airborne now!" The first time I saw the movie, when his family was moving through the army checkpoints, I thought "Wow, once the government is controlling the perimeter, you've waited way too long to GTFO."

After that, and assuming you mean I was determined to stay in NYC like Neville was, I would have kept my weapons closer than he did. I would have established backup stashes of food/weapons/ammo/equipment aroung the city, in case I was cut off from my BIL, or was wounded and couldn't travel far. I would have stood my ground and shot that deer, instead of trying to run within shotgun range. I might have set myself up closer to the water, for defensive purposes. (Debatable, though, can darkseekers swim? Plus, he wanted to stay in the family home.) I may or may not have played chess with a statue of Ceasar.

Poor form, buffy112. Take it from me, don't be an AH to someone until you have at least 10% of their post count. Even then if they've over 999 posts on a forum, think if you to tell them to perform an anatomical improbability upon their person.

Bwah ha ha ha! Were I the sort of person to have a sig, that might qualify.

Whoa, when I read zombieslayr's posts on "fortifying" his house I thought he was thick as a whale omlet for starting off his bug in process by abandoning his ground floor to the zeds. I've had breakfast cereals that were better fortified than his plan.

However, seeing this behavior really clarifies how much advice I want to give him.

Zombieslayr, poor form, go bug into Walmart.

I think I would have a semi-trailer with a pull a long and trailer. Virtually inexhaustable supply of fuel. And with the cab/sleeper a more defendable vehicle... I sure as h&ll wouldn't let my dog go out like that.. what a p*ss

the only difference is that I'll shoot them more. There's only so many zombies to kill, if you go them (instead of hiding), then there won't be any zombies left in the city very soon. They may seem powerful, but they're still human, so a headshot with a shotgun would kill them.

And since the zeds seemed to be allergic to sunlight, then how about opening some of the closed in spaces? With the sunlight as your shield, start breaking down walls around 8am and work until 4 pm. soon the subways/sewers will be the only place for the zeds to hid in, which all entrances will be backfilled with dirt and cement.

Hmmm....

Aquire a sturdy truck or car, mount armor, generator and UV lights.

Leave the place for a smaller city.

Clean trough it at day, sleep in the protected car at night.

Maybe some remote city ( in the mountains ?) with few roads to reach it.

After the city is clean, block the roads to the place.

Build a fortress.

Try to do basic gardening and livestock (food will run out).

This may work but ... for what ?

If you really are the last man on earth, you are screwed anyway.
