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

I love everything about this game; from the combat that sucks but is also great, to the amazing mods, to the cool ass levels and characters. - Danganronpa

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

It is the best zombie game on earth

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.

3 The Walking Dead

The best zombie games of all time. 10/10

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.

4 Dead Island

Terrible Dying Light is better, Dying light is pretty much what Dead Island Couldn't do

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

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...

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

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

This is so fun (even though I always lose)

7 Dying Light

A mix between 3 of the greatest games ever: Mirror's Edge, Dead Island and Far Cry. What else would you want?

The zombie are mutamutns and can do different things

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

This is the best zombie game by far

8 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

9 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

10 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

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!

Best Open World Zombie Game

12 Call of Duty: Black Ops II

Needs to be higher! Mob of the dead and origins are so good!

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

13 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.

14 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

Resident evil 5 is the best of all resident evil games ever made

15 Doom 3
16 Plants vs. Zombies

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

it's so funny and creative

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

The only real answer- Microsoft founder, Bill Gates

17 Dead Rising

Very underrated for such an extremely fun and challenging game. This deserves to be ranked much higher.

The only reason this is ranked so low is because it's not as popular as the other ones at the top, such as Left 4 Dead 2. And don't get me wrong, I like those games as well, but Dead Rising has a special place in my heart, this game is absolutely amazing in my opinion, all the abilities, levelling system, psychopaths, characters, the story and all the various different endings. This absolutely trumps any other Zombie Apocalypse game I have played.

This is the best zombie game ever and most hilarous zombie game.

Just like coryxkenshin said this is the best zombie game ever

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!

18 Half Life 2

20 this should be 1 - ikerevievs

19 Minecraft

Oh my gosh this should not count at all but I guess I'll give in and support it. (For real zombie games, look at the #1, 2, 3, and 20

This isn't a zombie game! - Sunflowerswag

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

20 Zombie Estate 2
21 The Walking Dead: Survival Instisnt
22 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

23 Resident Evil 3: Nemesis

What? Is the best ever it's kidding?

24 House of the Dead: Overkill

funny

25 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.

Zombie Pandemic is way better than the other browser based games if you like MMORPG and a want a tactical gameplay with turn based combat etc.

26 Call of Duty
27 Resident Evil

I like resident evil but where is 6?

28 Dead Rising 2: Off the Record
29 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

30 Resident Evil 2
31 House of the Dead 4

Minecraft is higher than this?

32 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

33 7 Days to Die

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

It is true survival

THIS GAME IS SO CANCER!

34 Prototype
35 Diablo 2
36 Lollipop Chainsaw
37 Unturned

Simple Graphic but complex gameplay

Cool.

yes

38 Prototype 2
39 Plants vs Zombies 2: It's About Time
40 Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare
41 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

42 House Of The Dead 3
43 Silent Hill
44 Zombie Lane
45 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
