Stubbs the Zombie: Rebel without a Pulse.

Case closed. 50s Visions of Tomorrow world, with a Zombie in a suit eating Grease extras, raygun holding jetpack men, and hillbillies with chainsaws.

Boom

I second this, Stubbs was a gem of a game, shame no one really played it at the time it came out. The ability to turn everyone into a walking brainless zombie was actually ahead of its time.A sound track of the tunes re-mixed from 1950's songs you had something special.

Sad we may never see Stubbs again.

You guys are into these early access indie games and I still prefer to stay in my AAA corner because I just think most indie games as inferior by going backwards.

Why is a game like Death Road to Canada superior to Dead Rising? How is it not seen as backwards? If you want to play Retro Games, play actual retro games, games that have better sprite artwork than these "sprite" based indie games try to emulate (and fails)

Why are you picking on my game but quoting Pony?

Because I don't want to play a retro game? I want to play Death Road to Canada, I think it looks good and it simply couldn't have been made on a retro console. It's just not possible to render that many zombos on a snes or render lighting in that way. I'm not saying it's the best looking pixel art game out there, but it's style works for me and the game is about more than just the art anyway.

It's just a different style. Pixel art isn't even about being 'retro'. I don't need every game I play to have 'realistic' gritty graphics, I like variety.

Your top 5 had DayZ and CoD in it. You're definitely out of touch.

Can we count Doom? Any Doom? Cause Doom has zombies.

If not, They Are Billions. An RTS twist on the, quest honestly, boring as fuck zombie cacophony of shit we've been getting for the past, what, 4-6 years? It's actually fun, not a survival horror game trying to rip off resident evil, like everything else, or a minecraft clone, like every-fucking-game. It's extremely refreshing, and considering it's in Early Access is quite surprising that it's as good as it is. I can only see the quality of this game go up as more and more is added to vary the gameplay and missions.

7 Days to Die. Although Left 4 Dead and Dead Island definitely deserve an honorable mention.

Seconded, 7. It's been a lot of fun for me and a few friends for a couple of years now- not the greatest game, but certainly entertaining.

I dunno, I think it's one of the better survival games out there. The last update was kind of a mess, but the overall design of the game, even from its inception, was incredibly solid.

IE: The dynamic world generation system, an emphasis on making enemy AI an ever-constant threat, even in the comfort of your own base, without making it too bullshitty, not resorting to godawful RPG-enemy levels, AI who actually attack structures(and not just doors), and an incredibly versatile yet easy to use modding system.

One of the most intensely satisfying gaming experiences I've ever had was playing 7 Days in coop with some friends, with nightly Blood Moons that we... accidentally enabled.

I get why this communuity never cared about COD Zombies, (that game is good, especially with Friends, its better than Left 4 Dead in some apsects)

But I thought DayZ was reletively still popular and a thing?

Nah, DayZs days have come and gone. It's no where near the powerhouse it once was. PUBG commands the battle royale streamer games right now.

I will never understand why people compare DayZ with battle royale games

Because it was? The zombies were kinda an after-thought to that game. It wasn't exactly like PUBG, but it was closer to that than say Left 4 Dead or State of Decay.

Zombies Ate My Neighbors, obviously. Anyone who says otherwise is a tasteles Philistine you should enver associate with.

Since "Dead Rising" is an option I'll say "Dead Rising 2". The great middle ground between the original's design and tone and the latter game's accessibility. It's an absolute joy.

No it wasn't. DayZ is a zombie survival game and it always was since the mod, your goal isn't to be dropped on a map that gets smaller until you're the only one left.

I was never able to beat this game despite years of trying T.T

My personal favorite zombie games would have to be Stubbs the Zombie and Cataclysm: Dark Days Ahead. DayZ the mod was great but shit really went downhill once they decided to make it a full on standalone.

AAA Gaming has been strangling the life out of the gaming community for years now. A lot of AAA games are good, definitely, but they get so samey and boring after a while. It's just so much easier to get into the indie scene, where the lax restrictions on graphics means they can explore whatever they hell they want. Most of them end up being garbage too but you can find some surprisingly great games in the indie scene if you actually look around for them.

I mean if you can't stand the graphics, that's your thing. Fine by me. That doesn't mean the games that have the graphics are bad. It just means they're not for you.
