Top 10 Zombie Games Of All Time

With the recent release of Dead Island, zombies are once again invading our TV sets and our gaming. It’s not exactly the first time this has happened though, with the zombie sub-sect of survival horror games being numerous throughout the annals of time. I’m discounting zombie related modes and DLC as they are a pound a penny these days. No, only entirely zombie-centric games will do for this illustrious run down of the greatest chances you have to fight the living dead.

10. I Made A Game With Zombies In It!

Proof that not all games in the Indie section of Xbox Live’s marketplace are completely shite, IMAGWZII is a fairly standard twin stick shooter that is made by its style. Sure its highly derivative, but it’s still an addictive and enjoyably simple romp with an awesome song. It isn’t genre defining, but you can pay a lot more for a lot worse.

9. Obscure

One of the few times traditional survival horror mechanics have had effective co-op multiplayer experiences, Obscure, with its local two player drop in and out co-op, was a revelation in the genre that had yet to be redefined by the zombie based multiplayer of Left 4 Dead. Granted, the game’s foes are more plant type enemies, but a mutation is a mutation in my book.

8. Alone in the Dark

If a game creates an entire genre, it had to be doing something right

The very first survival horror game has been tarnished by a myriad of weaker sequels, but the original is a masterpiece that spawned so many of the classic survival horror elements. Zombies in the attic, a giant and spooky mansion… It was all here and, despite the clunky controls and patchy visuals, you can still appreciate the genius of this ageing title even today.
