Zombies. Quite possibly the most well known and overused horror cliche in the media. From pop culture like movies, TV shows, and video games, zombies are still very much a popular horror subgenre. With the announcement that Days Gone will be coming to PC in Spring this year, we wanted to know from you guys what other single player zombie games are great on PC?

And just to be clear: we’re talking strictly single player here since the purpose is to prepare us for the Days Gone PC release soon, not that there are a lot of multiplayer zombie games out there though.

Games like Dying Light, Left 4 Dead, or even World War Z have more of that action-packed approach to zombies that Days Gone also seemingly has, where the focus is on mowing down hordes of zombies as quickly as possible.

Then are games like Telltale's The Walking Dead, or better yet, the Resident Evil franchise (at least the originals and the last few), where you are constantly on your toes and have to make quick decisions that could mean life or death for you or others around you. Or even excellent VR zombie games like The Walking Dead: Saints And Sinners.

But those are some big, AAA-level quality games, and there are countless other indie games that are also a lot of fun and can provide hours of entertainment that aren’t as well known, and we want to hear about them too.

So now it’s over to you, what other single player zombie games are great on PC? And why do you enjoy them? Do you prefer action-packed bloodfests like Left 4 Dead? Or the more survival horror experience like Resident Evil? And are you excited for Days Gone on PC? Let’s debate!

Do you enjoy zombie games?

Do you prefer action or survival zombie games?

For me it's such a boring, outdated concept that is being milked for too long. It's like poeple thinking that in order to make agood game it has to have zombies in it or smth like that, where is everyones imagination, zombies and zombies and zombies. How can someone be still interested in this after so many years

World War Z is a Good Game for quite a bit its seriously a 3rd person Left4Dead but its very very Grindy till you can actually have fun! and by then the game loop is a snore fest that keeps on dragging on.

if you Wanna Make the game Grindy then i guess The way Division1 did it is the best way to do it, make the Game Open world with exploration as you level up So this includes the Survival bits then by the time you've explored everything you'r

your at max level and then you can replay the Missions with a Few Alternate Routes and different Battle Arenas so that its not boring to do the same thing again and again. plus during the missions its like proper action zombie shooter

State of Decay 2 (minus the Enclaves, they nag too much)
I enjoy the survival/looting and community building.

For me Resident Evil Remake is the ultimate zombie game and the greatest expression of the survival horror genre

Re4 was awesome, re5 was great time with a friend and re6 had so much money behind it and went 110% into the cheese american action movie trope aka so bad it was great(with a friend to laugh at). RE7 was more back to the roots and great. The Resident evil series has taken its player base on a wild ride :D

For most part, I just played what is generally considered great, like Resident Evil, Telltales Walking Dead series, Dying Light,... Left 4 Dead is in my mind more of multiplayer game. But outside of that, only one more memorable was Stubbs the Zombie in Rebel Without a Pulse, which wasn't great, but it was surprisingly fun.
