The 10 Best Zombie Games

"Ever since film director George A. Romero showed the world that mindless, stumbling, decaying, undead corpses wanted nothing more than to eat our brains, zombies have been source material for just about every industry in entertainment. Video games included. A black and white film, The Night of the Living Dead reached out to audiences in 1968 -- sixteen years later, a few of us were alive to play as Ash on our Commodore 64 and ZX Spectrum, defending a log cabin from zombies and limbs in Palace Software's The Evil Dead. Nearly thirty years later, our obsession has reached epic proportions" (Dead Island, Dead Nation, Dead Rising 2, Dead Space 2, House of the Dead: Overkill, House of the Dead: Overkill - Extended Cut, PC, PS3, Wii, Xbox 360)

LFD2 is by far the best Zombie game out as of now.
Pure multi-player epic killing

My only gripe in L4D2 is the tanks. Those things just seem out of place, and create frustration more than anything. Beyond that it's the best co-op game ever, IMHO. I can't even play the zombie modes in the CoD games...they're just too slow paced. I like my zombies numerous and highly aggressive.

LFD2 is an awesome game but I think Plant Vs Zombies should be #1.

Also; DEAD ISLAND #5...Dead Space #7?

.....................

Really? I still hate myself for wasting 60$ on Dead Island and not buying Resistance 3.

i liked dead island. i think its only really fun when youre playing with a few friends though.

left 4 dead 2 was awesome, my only gripe with it was the lack of updates for the xbox version of the game.

i really wish they added zombies ate my neighbors though, i had tons of fun with that game

I'd add 'Stubbs the Zombie' , that game deserves a sequel.

The game that got me into liking barbershop quartets, haha.

I kind of prefer Left 4 Dead 1, nothing better then playing that with some friends over XBL. The fact that you actually get the chance to play as a zombie gives the game an edge. It is very unique.

Glad they put L4D2 as #1. I love that game. The kicker is I got both it and L4D1, plus the expansions, for something like $10 on Steam. Best bang for the buck ever.

When's L4D3???

For the last time:
Resident Evil is not a zombie game!

False
From Resident Evil Wiki:

A zombie refers to most humans that have succumbed to the Tyrant virus (either through contaminated water supply or via bites and scratches from a virus carrier).

The researchers at Umbrella called them "zombies" due to their slow pace, mindless nature, similarity to the modern-day concept of a zombie in 20th century cinema, and the fact that they are walking dead corpses.[notes 1] Like their horror film counterparts, zombies spread the virus through biting and are walking corpses, DUE TO THE FACT THAT INDIVIDUALS DIE BEFORE TURNING INTO ZOMBIES.

Zombies were the main enemies in the Resident Evil franchise, but were replaced by Las Plagas and their hosts in Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil 5. Zombies return in the upcoming games Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City and Resident Evil: Revelations.

If we want to get technical on what a zombie is, then almost all of those games listed are true zombies according to the Vodou religion. Otherwise, Resident Evil IS a zombie game.

I would choose Dead island as the best if my level 45 wasn't corrupt do to bugs. Because of that Red Dead and L4D take the spot. Nothing worse than grinding to level 45 only to lose it because of bugs.
