Opposed to Fun? Infinity Ward Would "Never" Include Zombies

Stories like this one are where my ideology of video games and the games industry itself kinda clash. See, I view games as a consumer product (entertainment software) valued according to its entertainment capacity. In short: studios like Infinity Ward should strive to entice and delight me.
