Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 Zombies
Black Ops 2 was the first Call of Duty game with nonlinear gameplay featuring multiple endings and future warfare technology. More important, the game had zombies. A lot of them would come in waves and try to eat your brain. That’s what they do, they are undead and have to feed on living beings. You can try to survive them on your own, or team up with other players and go on a zombie killing spree. One of the best survival games of a decade.
Plants vs. Zombies
The undead are not so scary in this one, but they are still on a mission to eat you alive. Use various plants to repel them and you might even survive an apocalypse. This tower defense type of game was a big success from PopCap Games and free to play. What’s even better, humour can be found throughout the game, like gravestone’ inscriptions “Just Resting” and “Expired” which was taken from the Dead Parrot sketch. Norwegian Blue parrot to be precise and if you never heard of it then you deserve to be eaten by a zombie.
The Last of Us
The Last of Us is an action-adventure game with survival elements that include zombies. You wouldn’t have guessed that. In 2033, post-apocalyptic United States are infested with the undead, and you have to escort girl named Ellie across the continent. There are other enemies as well, such as cannibals and other humans who will try to put an end to your existence. The Last of Us was critically acclaimed for a good reason.

After escaping from the city, you will have to solve puzzles, explore and fight in order to survive. All aspects of Resident Evil 2 fit in perfectly to create a horror-filed world and give you creeps. That’s why it was the fastest-selling video game in the US with over 380,000 copies sold in the first weekend. That number is huge, considering that the games was released in 1998. Great story with evil creatures is what takes for a game to be a huge success.
The Walking Dead
An episodic adventure that got a sequel recently. The game is based on comic book series, so the cause of zombie outbreak is unknown. The focus of a game is on story and character development.

Dead Island: Riptide
An action RPG set on an island in the Banoi archipelago, which has been infested by zombies. The plot follows four survivors who are immune to the disease. They will encounter other human survivors, but the main goal is to kill the undead. Although it was not such a huge success. Dead Island: Riptide is still worth playing if you are into a survival mood. The challenge can be daunting as the undead will be harder to kill as you level up. Well some weird players even think those zombie females are hot.
ZombiU is a first-person shooter where player assumes the role of random humans, all trying to survive a zombie apocalypse in London. Various weapons and items are used to kill the evil creatures. Interesting concept is that if a player gets bit by a zombie they will die instantly, and take the role of another survivor. In order to get back the items in inventory, player has to kill its previous character who has now turned into an undead. ZombiU was released for Wii U, with mixed reception. In general, players agree that this title is difficult and has no equivalent among the console games.
Pixelated horror where a toxic waste infected water and deceased humans have risen from their graves. Player has to fight their way through the hordes of zombies, find supplies and trade with other survivors in order to escape the city. If you are up for a survival game, but don’t feel like staring at blood and horrifying undead, than Dead Pixels can give so much fun.
Left 4 Dead 2
Left 4 Dead 2 is a first-person shooter where cooperative gameplay matters most. Set in the aftermath of a worldwide zombie apocalypse. The story revolves around four survivors who carry the infection, but are you immune to it somehow.

The name got it, this is a nightmare filled with zombies. An open with vast number of undead, random bandits, mobs and all other beings trying to kill you.

The game became players’ favourite survival title soon after its release.

You have to do it, since your wife bit the daughter and it’s up to you to save her life. What a mother! Genuine story, difficult combat and screen infested with enemies are good enough reason to try this title.
I’m sure everyone heard of a DayZ that has been released as Beta around a month ago, and already sold over 1 million copies. So, what’s so special about this game? It is that realistic feeling of an apocalypse and fear of knowing that there are other players who will try to kill you for your supplies. Yes, DayZ brings out violence in people, but that is what the life would be if a zombie apocalypse really happened. Your mission is simple, stay alive and fight your way through life.
