A List of Zombie-Based Digital Games

This list contains digital games that foreground zombies. For instance, the titles of these games may include the word “zombie” or otherwise refer to the walking dead. Zombies may also have narrative significance, feature as playable characters, or be presented as prominent obstacles to be overcome or manipulated by the player in these games. Other games that contain zombies but do not maintain a primary focus on them – such as Ghosts’n Goblins (1985), Sweet Home (1989), Conker’s Bad Fur Day (2001), and Saints Row (2006) – are omitted. This list also privileges console games that have been released in physical form; that is, on an arcade machine, disk, or cartridge and not those which are exclusively downloadable. Smartphone games and apps like Zombies, Run! (2012), as well as web browser games, are also excluded from this list.
