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

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.

2 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.

How is L4D2 better than Last of Us. Last of Us had everything it is like the erfect game.

3 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.

The best zombie games of all time. 10/10

4 Dead Island

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

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

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

Really really awesome espically on coop op best I'm glad its in the top 3

5 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 game ever in my opinion, but its not a zombie game...

The best zombie game and Leon is awesome!

6 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. -

Best zombie game made

One of the funniest zombie games ever

7 Call of Duty: Black Ops

Good map build, scary, hell hounds, DEATH MACHINE

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

Black ops zombies was a work of art

Zombies are too repedative laugh out loud

8 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

Great game. Spent way too much time on it

9 Left 4 Dead

Come on #14 really this game is the best zombie game I have ever played should be 2nd after LEFT 4 DEAD 2

This is an amazing game! - Fullwalking2

I got this game for my b day and I never stop playing it

10 Dying Light

Epic game, left 4 dead sucks, who plays it in 2017?!? Dumb people...

No not dumb, People who can clearly tell what a good game looks like - Metallic_Lore

Amazing! Parkour+zombie killing= SMASH HIT. Best zombie game

The perfect parkour zombie mass slaughter simulator out there. 10/10

The zombie are mutamutns and can do different things

The Contenders

11 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

Very good, should be higher on the list because it's open world, and it's the only zombie game I know of that takes place in the old west, biggest map I know of too.

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

Greatest zombie game ever end of story!

12 Call of Duty: Black Ops II

Amazing I fell like Call of Duty zombies could be its own game

Such a good zombie mode in this really thought out

I really like this game

I love everything about it, it should be number 1

13 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 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!

State of Decay beats every zombie game, fact.

15 Plants vs. Zombies

it's so funny and creative

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.

And it all's also the bestselling book based off a videogame.

16 Doom 3
17 House of the Dead 2

#17 what this game should be in top 5 at least ok the acting is crap so what

Best zombie game ever. 100000/10

18 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!

This should be #1


19 Resident Evil 2
20 Half Life 2

20 this should be 1 - ikerevievs

21 Minecraft

This isn't a zombie game! - Sunflowerswag

We mean focused on zombies
The Walking Dead
Not zombies as a minor enemy

22 Zombie Estate 2
23 The Walking Dead: Survival Instisnt
24 DayZ

It's a work in progress and has a lot of potential. overall one of my personal favorites and should be higher on this list

What? Dayz Is Top 5 What the hell is going on?

Best zombie game for pc - codvsbf

25 House of the Dead: Overkill


26 Zombie Pandemic

I haven't had this much fun since I played X-com and the Fallout games back when I was a kid! It has more content and a richer world than any other zombie game I've tried and since I like co-op games and found a fun clan pretty quickly I haven't felt like playing anything else for almost 2 weeks now...!

I started playing this game during breaks at work and I'm loving it so much I now actually look forward to getting to work (for the breaks

Super cool game! Lots of content and places to explore. Takes a while to get into, but well worth the time.

Its really an awesome Zombie game, easy to play MMORPG with deeper gameplay and cooler missions.

27 Dead Rising 2: Off the Record
28 Call of Duty
29 Resident Evil 3: Nemesis

What? Is the best ever it's kidding?

30 House of the Dead 4

Minecraft is higher than this?

31 Dead Island Riptide Special Edition

Better than the first in every way- only flaw is that it does not address specific issues in the first game. Just because the first game came out earlier, does not mean it is better! The first was more advanced for its date of release, but this game is still an improvement. They should swap places

32 Prototype
33 Diablo 2
34 Resident Evil

I like resident evil but where is 6?

35 7 Days to Die

It is true survival

Great game, block based building tower defense games with zombies, with the right modding on a good server it's awesome.


36 Prototype 2
37 Plants vs Zombies 2: It's About Time
38 Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare
39 Unturned


40 House Of The Dead 3
41 Silent Hill
42 Zombie Lane
43 ZombiU

This is an amazing zombie game, one of my favorites. It's great that the game is more slower pace which builds tension.

Unlike any other zombie game you've ever played

44 Lollipop Chainsaw
45 Zombie Army Trilogy

Best zombie game of all time, great music and gunplay, zombie hordes can be dispatched using tactics based on sniper elite, hours and hours of fun

46 Stupid Zombe
47 Rise of Nightmares
48 Hitman: Blood Money
49 Typing of the Dead
50 Saints Row 2
