List of zombie video games

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This is an incomplete list of video games strongly featuring zombies. These games feature creatures inspired by the archetypal flesh-eating zombies seen in horror films, B-movies and literature; such as in the films of George A. Romero. Other variants such as the faster types of zombie inspired by the film 28 Days Later's 'infected' are also included.[1][2] Particular zombie rationale and depictions vary with the source.

Zombies are common or generic enemies in video games. The ZX Spectrum computer game Zombie Zombie, released exclusively in Europe during 1984, is considered to be the first video game focused on zombies.[1][3] Zombie games became more prevalent after the release of the survival horror game Resident Evil in 1996.[1] This release, coupled with the 1997 light gun shooter The House of the Dead gave rise to "an international craze".[4] Resident Evil sold 2.75 million units within the United States alone,[4] its success resulted in it becoming a major horror franchise encompassing video games, novelizations and films.[1]
