Since zombies have taken the entertainment industry and the public by storm, it was no surprise that after zombie movies the video gaming world would also be enchanted by these creatures. Their appeal? They are so dislikable! And not just in a bad way, mind. They can be scared-out-of-your-wits scary or so-cute-I-want-to-kill-you. That is why they make a great antagonist in the video gaming world. Here is the lowdown on the best zombie games available on the market.
Killing Floor 2
This is the best arcade style game in the bunch. It is from a first-person perspective and you can play alone or with pals. You can choose different characters (there are 10 choices) and different scenarios. You can choose the type of zombies (there are 14 different types!) you want to kill and the level of difficulty. They may be easy kills or crazy why-don’t-you-just-die types. As you pass levels, you earn money, which you can use to purchase ammo, weapons, and armor. As you go through level after level, you will find that your character will also level up in terms of reloading and healing. Better be ready to get addicted to this game.
Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare 2
Who says zombies cannot be likeable? Case in point: plants vs zombies. Hearing them cry out, “Brains!” can be endearingly cute. This is the best zombie game for kids. It’s cute, not scary at all, and the gameplay is quite simple and straightforward. This can be played alone or with multiple players (offline and online). In multiplayer mode, you can opt to kill zombies together or you can take opposite sides (sweet!). Played from a third-person point of view, there are over 100 zombie characters available in 14 different categories. Where else can you find an astronaut zombie and a sunflower that shoots fire? Only here, people! If you want to take a practice swing, you can do practice mode first before jumping into the action.
Resident Evil 7: Biohazard
When it comes to the best horror feel, this one takes the cake. The gameplay is from a first-person point of view which makes turning into a corner all the more scary. The scene is set at an abandoned plantation teeming with the undead. Very much like previous Resident Evil games, you don’t just wander around aimlessly, killing zombies. As you explore the plantation, you need to solve puzzles as well. Want to up the ante? Use a VR headset to make it feel more real and put you in the scene.
