Zombies have been an integral part of pop culture, and regardless of what the medium is, we have been seeing more of them in recent years. From demonic invasions to viral attacks, the origin stories of these hideous creatures that were once humans vary, but we all can agree on the fact that shooting them up in games can be very fun. We bring to you some of the best zombie shooting games that you should try out if you are looking for a spooky but fun experience. You can play these zombie fighting games on Xbox One, PS4, Xbox 360, PC, iPhone, Andriod or even online.
14. Dead Space 2
Dead Space is one of the most iconic horror franchises in gaming history, and Dead Space 2 is undoubtedly the strongest of the Dead Space trilogy. The developers put in a lot of effort into ensuring they’re the ones who have the upper hand on you when it comes to throwing the unexpected at you. The horror mechanics are brilliantly designed, and the game was honestly ahead of its time. In an interview Director Wright Bagwell discussed how he wanted the zombies to spawn from different locations depending on where you are positioned. The game’s cinematics and audio design are extremely well done, and even though the game is quite old now, the graphics hold up better than you would expect. The sci-fi horror franchise is truly one of gaming’s finest and it’s not just the horror elements in-game but also the difficult decision you have to make from time to time that add to the atmosphere. If you have the time you should definitely check out the entire trilogy but on short notice, Dead Space 2 is probably your best bet.
13. Dead Island
While most of the games on this list focus on single player titles, Dead Island is the perfect co-op experience. Dead Island shares a lot of mechanics with Fallout 3 and Left for Dead franchise. The storyline of Dead Island is the usual holiday trip gone wrong trope that a lot of horror movies have overused through the years. The Oceanian island looks stunning in-game, and the kill animations are just beautiful. There is a lot of focus on melee weapons too in case you are bored of mowing the zombies down with your guns. Weapons like throwing knives allow you to be stealthy in sticky situations when you are low on ammo or need to get out unnoticed. Dead Island is extremely fast-paced, and if you want to have fun with your friends as you shoot zombies mindlessly, there are not too many competitors out there.
12. Resident Evil 2
