In celebration of the recent release of the latest Dying Light sequel, we wanted to take a look back at one of gaming’s biggest tropes: zombies. So today we want to know which zombie games you have enjoyed the most over the last few years, and what you think the genre might be lacking.
Of course, each zombie game can be wildly different from each other. Dying Light 2 and Days Gone both share an open world with lots of zombies to fight and human settlements to encounter. But both take the traversal mechanics in a very different direction. And something like Project Zomboid focuses more on the brutal survival gameplay of scavenging and building bases.
Then there’s also more of the choose-your-own-adventure route with The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series. Or just straight up shooter action like Left 4 Dead, Back 4 Blood, or World War Z. There are so many different avenues to take when it comes to what zombie game you want to play next, but which ones are the cream of the crop?
Since there are so many games to choose from these days, we won’t be listing them all in the polls below. But if you feel like we missed a big one then do let us know in the comments! And let us know what kind of genre you prefer your zombies games to be, whether that be shooter, survival, RPG etc.
Side note: since some zombie games encompass a series like Dying Light, consider the voting option in the poll to include the entire series.
So what do you think? What are the best zombie games? Do you enjoy zombie games? Or has the trop gotten too stale now? How could it be kept fresh? And what genre of game do you enjoy the most for a zombie game? Let us know!
