When it comes to zombies, there has been no shortage of them in any media. From movies to TV to games, the zombie apocalypse has been the most popular form of a post-apocalyptic world. Even Call of Duty had their "Zombies" mode as one of the most popular games out there.

But with all the Zombie based media out there, you would think that the genre is getting old and overdone. There are a few games out there which only prove that this genre is not only still popular, but it can still be excellent. The zombie concept hasn't been beaten to death (yet).

Here are 6 zombie survival games that are some of the most fun in the genre and fun games in general.

#6. GTFO


Available on: PC

Release Date: 9 December 2019

GTFO is a zombie survival game where you can play with up to 4 players. You have to gather resources, build your arsenal of weapons and use your wits in order to outsmart the zombies which have been unleashed by mistake.

GTFO is still under beta and is currently only available on Steam. It has been in development for a long time but it still gained a lot of hype despite the oversaturation of zombie games out there. They are yet to announce when they will have a full release and whether they will release the game for console.

#5. Days Gone


Available on: PS4

Release Date: 26 April 2019

Days Gone is a PS4 exclusive zombie survivor game. You play as Deacon, a US Army Veteran turned bounty hunter who spends his days on the road. The post-apocalyptic setting features an open world where zombies will fight slower in the day and more aggressive by night.

You'll go around the world collecting weapons to fight and you will also salvage parts for your bike. Your bike is your main method of transportation and you can upgrade it, along with the weapons you collect.

The game involves a fair bit of strategy but you can put a lot of hours into it.

#4. World War Z


Available on: PC, Xbox One, PS4

Release Date: 16 April 2019

Based on the Brad Pitt movie of the same name (but sadly not the book), World War Z has various chapters set in different parts of the world. The game is almost a mirror of Left 4 Dead 2 and many fans call it the "unofficial Left 4 Dead 3".

The game dynamically changes the difficulty for you. If you're having it too easy, you will be flooded with hoards of zombies. If you have to face a huge fight, you will find a supply of weapons. The game can be quite difficult and challenging but you can team up with 3 other players to assist you.

#3. State of Decay 2


Available on: PC, Xbox One

Release Date: 22 May 2018

State of Decay 2 is another game where you can play with up to three other players. But in this game, the focus is not just on coordinating to kill zombies. You'll need to scavenge for items and make sure you have a good build in order to survive.

Although it has received negative or neutral reviews, it is still one of the best zombie survival games out there. The game features a permanent death and if you die, you'll have to start over again. That helps you ensure that you do things the right way always as you progress.

#2. Resident Evil 2 (2019)


Available on: PC, Xbox One, PS4

Release Date: 25 January 2019

If you're familiar with the Resident Evil series, you'll know that it is one of the best zombie survival series of games ever made. Resident Evil 2 was originally launched in 1998 and got a full-fledged remake in 2019.

Resident Evil 2 sticks quite well to the original. You control either one of two protagonists: Leon and Claire. You'll have to navigate the hellscape of Raccoon City, defeating zombies and advancing through an incredibly well-written plot.

Resident Evil 2 is one of the best zombie survival games out there and it has won many awards for its gameplay and narrative.

#1. The Last of Us


Available on: PC, Xbox One, PS4

Release Date: 14 June 2013

Although it is not exactly a "zombie" game, The Last of Us is set in a post-apocalyptic world where a certain plant has infected the planet and turned them into monstrous creatures. The Last of Us features a progressive story where you have to use stealth or go guns blazing in whichever level you are playing.

The Last of Us is one of the best games of all time and not just the best zombie survivor game. It has an incredibly heartbreaking story and you'll want to play this game for the story more than just the game. The game has won several awards and even almost 7 years later, it has been hard to top this game.

The Last of Us is also receiving a sequel in May 2020 and it is one of the most hyped titles of all time.
