I remember back in 1.5.2 when I first started playing zombies were iconic and actually felt a bit intimidating. Even on easy and normal while they wouldn't break the door they'd always stand there knocking on it, which was iconic for being slightly annoying while acting like an actual zombie, which makes it the staple it is today. However that little detail seems to have been removed in recent updates and well, it just makes the zombie boring.
One of the main problems is without this it's just like every other mob. The zombie was the zombie because it actually wanted to eat you, not because it stood outside your house walking around doing nothing until it burns into rotten flesh, which most players won't have trouble with like they used to for their first days. If we really wanted it to be easy then why didn't we make it to where hard means your door will break, normal your door will get knocked on, and easy nothing will knock on your door.
In short, what made a mob iconic, interesting, and even able to make the game more fun shouldn't be removed. Please bring this back, even if easy means nothing will knock on your door. I'd way rather have zombies be an actual challenge and zombie then a mindless dude walking around and then burning in the sun.
