Ten Best Zombie Games

Games with zombies, some sort of zombie, or anything that has to do with one.

The Top Ten

1 Left 4 Dead 2 Left 4 Dead 2

Everything that was good about the original is made GREAT here. everything is fast-paced the newly expanded weapons system allows for a more bad-A, military/high-tech zombie shooting experience, the journey through the south is made both fun, scary, depressing, dark, gritty, lonely, and 110% zombie. And the melee weapons. GOD do I love me that katana... 9/10.

This is the best zombie game ever I play. It views new special infected like jockey, charger and spitter. It also views new weapons like Silenced Submachine gun. And It also views new survivors like Nick, Ellis, Coach and Rochelle. Two Thumbs Up For Left 4 Dead 2!

This is an awesome zombie game. I love the fact that it forces people to work together if they want to survive, unlike other games where there is no cooperation.

One does not simply beat a valve game! Also the walking dead is even on this list like why lol. That game was meh had zero replay value and was not a match for the charters or story of tales from the borderlands, like that game was fan tastic.

2 The Last of Us The Last of Us

The Last of Us is one of the most realistic, dramatic and groundbreaking zombie game I have ever played

Seriously? #15? This should be #1!

1: The Last of Us
2: The Walking Dead
3: Left For Dead 2
4: Call of Duty: Black Ops
5: Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 - Alpha101

Must keep self from writing paragraph... Just trust me. This game is awesome. Play it.


The Last of Us is my favorite game forever! The graphic,the gameplay,the voice acting,and the heartwrenching story make this game really perfect!

3 Resident Evil 4 Resident Evil 4

This game has a very good plot. Leon is awesome in it and RE4 is a popular game nowadays, look at the meme's created of it. :))

Leon is the man. I'm serious, Where would we be without him? RE4 is my second favorite game, losing to only Dark Souls.

It's the best one I've played greatest zombie story is definitely the RE series

It's the best game ever in my opinion, but its not a zombie game...

4 Call of Duty: World at War Call of Duty: World at War

Call of Duty Zombies should be an entirely different game in my opinion. It is very fun just to simply survive but in most cases it is very easy and gets boring pretty quickly. - TheGrammarPolice

It is only a special feature though. -

This is so fun (even though I always lose)

One of the funniest zombie games ever

5 The Walking Dead The Walking Dead

This should really be in first place, if not at least in the top three. First zombie game I ever played which was built almost entirely on the relationships you build with other characters and the storyline and plot. There is a reason it won 'Game of the Year 2012'. I'd say either The Walking Dead, or The Last of Us are the best zombie-related video games for this aspect alone.

This is one of the most emotional games I have ever played. You always get so close to a character or you start to get used to a new character that has been introduced and then they kill that person off. You can also change how each character thinks about you depending on the choices you make. This is a very great game that will leave you sad and it will mess with your feelings.

Left for Dead is the most fun zombie game, with you gunning down zombies running at you with your assault rifles and shotguns, but this is the best as far as story and character development, one of the best stories I have seen in a game. It made you care for the characters especially Lee and Clementine. Its just a good thing they took their inspiration from the comic and not the amc T.V. series like another game on this list.

Focused on the conflicts of the choices you make and how to deal with them in an apocalyptic world. Had you make moral decisons left and right ultimately affecting your character and the people around you. Fantastic game.

6 Dead Island Dead Island

Big world, lots of zombies, gory effects, and infinite replay, what else could you ask for?!

I loved this game and the idea 4 the zombies but the story line could have been improved

In spite of lag, and a weak storyline, the gameplay is beyond phenomenal: Take some movie-inspired zombie gore, a massive variety of weapons, weapon modifications, and sandbox style gaming and you got a perfect zombie game that you will play over and overy

7 Call of Duty: Black Ops Call of Duty: Black Ops

Call of Duty zombies are just a game mode, you can't actually say it's a game alone, not to mention it's repetitive as hell! - ManuelMetal

Good map build, scary, hell hounds, DEATH MACHINE

Black ops zombies was a work of art

Zombies are so much fun in this game I played it on my ps3 online name is shadymatt50 - codvsbf

8 Dead Rising 2 Dead Rising 2

Best zombie game I've played by far and I've played a lot of zombie games. There is so much content and replay ability in this game. This game does a great job of being a truly original experience in a genre that is full of unoriginal shoot em' ups 9.0/10

This is the greatest Zombie game in EU! Awesome graphics, tons of gore, great story, awesome gameplay and loads of zombies!

Bloody brilliant, Dead rising was great, using anything as a weapon but Dead rising 2 is phenominal using anything as a weapon and being able to combine oblects in to the most original and inventive weapons imaginable E.G. chainsaws with a paddle, Bow and arows with dynamite, Fire axes with a sledgehammer, boxing gloves with fire, a shotgun with a rake etc. The story is also great and the main protagonist (Chuck Greene) is way better and more badass than Frank west from the original

9 Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare

What?!?! Cowboys and zombies in one game isn't in the top 5?!?! This is on of the top 5 best games of all time, it should be at least #3. - HTML_RuleZ_D00D

The gun that fires zombie parts has to be the best!

Greatest zombie game ever end of story!

13 Resident Evil 5 Resident Evil 5

Resident Evil 4 and Doom are awesome but now I vote for RE 5. This game isn't that popular among RE fans. Why? It's just brilliant game with superb graphics. Underrated game - Magnolia

It is really good they got the controls from the previous re games updated graphics the only thing that's missing is the horror its not scary at all compared to re4 or 2

That game scared One of my uncle's when he was 14 or 15 or 16

Not that good

14 Plants vs. Zombies Plants vs. Zombies

This takes such an bloody, scary creature and turns it into a family friendly game to play! Popcap, we love you.

So funny and fun, released on DS recently and ill buy it.

Not a super bloody and graphic violent zombie game for once... Cool

Best game ever made, according to me...

15 State of Decay

Known as "DayZ for Xbox 360", this is an open world zombie survival game where you have to scavenge for resources and weapons in a big 16km map. A flawless game apart from occasionally poor frame rates. And the game is only £20 because you download it off Xbox Live Arcade.P. S My second favourite zombie game would be Telltale's The Walking Dead because it was the only video game that got me upset if a character died.

I cannot believe this game is this low in ranking...!

I LOVE State of Decay. Waiting on the second one!

This game is showing the real what happens if there was a zombie apocalypse? do you think you can find an M4 in your cabinet or something like that? in the first scene of game you are in jungle and you have only a wooden brench? this game is just awesome!

16 Doom 3 Doom 3
17 Resident Evil 2 Resident Evil 2
18 Dead Rising Dead Rising

This game has everything! Psychopaths, photography, amazing story, leveling up system, vehicles, unlimited amount of weapons, humour and don't forget a massive mall packed full of zombies! Dead rising 2 is great but the first one is groundbreaking! This game was the reason I got an Xbox 360!
