Because all the best video games take braaaaains to play.
Video games and zombies go together like peanut butter and jelly: They’re a dime a dozen, just like when it comes to horror flicks. But that’s because we love seeing the undead shuffle around listlessly (or zooming toward their prey) in an attempt to scarf down brains, entrails, and body parts. We love zombies, period, and we’re always calculating exactly what we’d do in the event the zombie apocalypse actually does happen. (Fingers crossed it doesn’t.)
What better way to get in some real-world “training” than by taking zombies on in a great video game? Thanks to these shining gems of the industry, you can see exactly what it’s like to try and escape these rotten creatures, or at the very least, get up and personal with them. Without further ado, here are 25 of the best zombie games out there, listed in alphabetical order.
Just remember: Aim for the head! That’s zombie-slaying 101.
