50 best Zombie games for Pc featuring people who were alive, are now dead, but are also sorta alive again.

In video games, the living dead are everywhere. To celebrate Halloween, IGN has compiled 50 games featuring shambling, moaning corpses. We've ranked them according to a not-quite arbitrary quality of 'zombie awesome' - a loose amalgamation of zombie-numbers, adherence to zombie archetypes and quality of zombie experience.
You'll notice that our definition of 'zombie' is somewhat fuzzy, but just to be clear, it's a human corpse that's moving toward you with menacing intent. You know them when you see them.
Also, please note, we've only mentioned one game in a series, to signify all their evil offspring.
50. Zombies
Platforms: Atari 8-Bit, Commodore 64, Apple II, ZX Spectrum
Developer: BRAM Inc.
Original Release: 1983
Zombie Type: Pixelated Sprinters
Zombie games lean toward action, but this oddity was a rare puzzler. The goal wasn't to (re)kill your foes but rather to escape their rotting clutches. Enemies moved fast, well before movies 28 Days Later and the Dawn of the Dead remake popularized the zombie-sprint. For no good reason, the zombies held an aversion to crucifixes, which the player used to block the zombie meanderings.
49. Friday the 13th
Platform: NES
Developer: Pack-In-Video
Original Release: 1988
Zombie Type: Were There Even Zombies in Friday the 13th?
Friday the 13th is a notoriously bad game. There isn't a single element of the game that isn't tarnished by the taint of movie-tie-in-ism. They even had the gall to dress Jason Voorhees in a purple jumpsuit! It also had zombies. Not that there were zombies in any of the Friday the 13th films. Their presence can be blamed on the fact the developers had to put something in for players to fight while they wandered around Camp Crystal Lake trying to find Mr. Purple Pants.
48. Little Red Riding Hood's Zombie BBQ
Platforms: DS
Developer: EnjoyUp, Gammick Entertainment
Original Release: 2008
Zombie Type: Shmup Fodder
Little Red Riding Hood's Zombie BBQ is one of those games that's less about telling a coherent story and more about giving the player an excuse to shoot zombies. A vertical shoot em' up, it eschews the more regular genre standard of space ships going "p-koo!" at one another and puts you in control of a busty version Red Riding Hood with a predilection for blasting the undead. The zombies here are pretty standard. They shuffle, the moan, and they explode as zombies put in the path of a double-barrel should.
47. Zombie Nation
Platform: NES
Developer: KAZe
Original Release: 1991
Zombie Type: Disembodied Head
Zombie Nation is odd. It stars a samurai's disembodied head on a mission to free a zombified America from the clutches of a meteor named Darc Seed that crashed in the Nevada desert.
46. Land of the Dead: Road to Fiddler's Green
Platforms: PC, Xbox
Developer: Brainbox Games
Original Release: 2005
Zombie Type: Broken Beyond Repair
Land of the Dead: Road to Fiddler's Green is so broken and bad that it utterly wrecks what in itself is a really solid concept: a first person shooter that's also a prequel to a George Romero zombie flick. Horrendous AI, boring combat and shoddy hit detection unfortunately make it less an exercise in zombie slaying and more of a cautionary tale in how not to make a first-person shooter. We include it only because it's the only game to be based directly off a George Romero film, and considering its wretchedness, will likely be the last.
45. The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
Platforms: PC, Xbox 360, PS3
Developer: Bethesda
Original Release: 2006
Zombie Type: Mystical Meat Munchers
Fancy yourself a bit of sewer spelunking? In the world of Tamriel you better come prepared for the undead. The first time you see one of these fellows there's no mistaking what it is. Its flesh is rotting, its insides are exposed, and it moans with an inhuman hunger for living flesh. Just don't count on a headshot to bring them down. You can pop them in the skull with an arrow and they'll just keep on coming. Sometimes they may not even have a head! And while they may not bite you, their claws are more diseased then a Manhattan pigeon so make sure to bring the appropriate potions, just in case.
44. Moonwalker
Platform: Arcade, Amiga, Atari ST, Commodore 64, PC, MSX, Master System, Genesis, Game Gear
Developer: Sega, Emerald Software
Original Release: 1989
Zombie Type: Backup Dancers
Based loosely on one of the oddest films ever made, and one of the strangest things Michael Jackson ever produced, Moonwalker followed MJ's quest to rescue a bunch of pre-pubescent children from the clutches of some dastardly evil doers. Not that this game isn't bizarre enough in its own right. If we can give the game one bit of credit, it's the dancing zombies. One stage in the game is overflowing with them and yes, they will do the Thriller dance. Just not to the song Thriller. That would make too much sense.
43. Undead Knights
Platforms: PSP
Developer: Team Tachyon
Original Release: 2009
Zombie Type: Mortuary Minions
Undead Knights puts you in the shoes of one of three cursed medieval warriors on a quest for vengeance - you'll spend the game butchering your foes with an assortment of weapons, powers and zombies. One of your powers is the ability to turn your foes into undead warriors that will follow your every command. With the push of a few buttons you can send a horde of the dead charging down your hapless foes while you, primordial badass that you are, cuts your own swathe through the enemy's ranks. Add in a thumping heavy metal soundtrack for the win!
42. Survival Crisis Z
Platforms: PC
Developer: Totally Screwed Software
Original Release: 2004
Zombie Type: Faction Unfriendly
Dropping you in the middle of an urban sandbox overrun with the undead, Survival Crisis Z gives you one main goal: survive. How do you survive is up to you. Perhaps you'll align with one of the factions warring for control within the city. Maybe you'll stay neutral and take what you need from them both. Either way, you're in for a fight from both the living and the hungry dead.
41. Zombi
Platforms: Armstrad CPC, ZX Spectrum, Commodore 64, Amiga, IBM PC
Publisher: Ubisoft
Original Release: 1986
Zombie Type: Romero Inspired
George Romero is an inspiration for all zombie games, but Zombi is perhaps the most literal translation of one of his movies. Based closely on his classic film Dawn of the Dead, Zombi is an icon-based adventure game where you control a party of four characters exploring a shopping mall filled with the undead. In addition to the mall, the game borrowed other key elements from the film - cargo trucks, gun store, helicopter etc. Best bit - when one of your characters get bit, they come back to life as a zombie.
