Yesterday's release of Dead Space 3, a co-op game about a once-reluctant hero now ready to kick ass all over a hostile frozen planet in the name of saving humanity (and his hot friend Ellie), spawned a debate about which would cause more terror: aliens or zombies. The hero, Isaac has to face not only a squadron of Necromorphs, including easily-startled, nearly blind, zombie-like Feeders, and Fodders, who look like your standard, regular ice-pick-wielding humans but are in fact tentacle-intestined demons, but strange, new enemies like the giant snowbeast (essentially a terrifying orifice attached to a set of eight deadly legs).

So, which terrifies you more: aliens that posses unknown powers and weaponry unimaginable by the human race, or good old-fashioned face-munching zombies? The comments are yours, so cast your vote.

Dead Space 3 is out now. Go here to find out more about the game and to order away.
