Top 3: Zombie Game Series

Since it’s nearly Halloween let’s get into the spirit of things. Here is a quick rundown of my Top Zombie Game Series.

Left for Dead series.

The Left for Dead series was made by Valve. It is a zombie survival series and clearly one of the best around. In each game you play as one of a group of four survivors fighting off wave after wave of zombies as you try to reach your objectives. The game works well as a single player experience, but it was clearly designed for you to knock off some zombie heads with a group of friends. Why else would the game emphasise helping out your teammates so much if it wasn’t. This isn’t just a game to play during the Halloween season though, it’s fun all year round, and there are plenty of DLC packs to keep you going. Coupled with that the fact that zombies spawn in random sequences means you never know exactly what to expect round the corner. In contrast to this co-operative experience is my next choice.

Dead Rising series.

Capcom’s invasion into the zombie market is quite the contrast to Valves. Dead Rising focuses more on the story and generally more on the single-player experience than the multiplayer. Multiplayer does exist in it, but isn’t as emphasised as Left for Dead’s. Dead Rising still makes it into my personal top 3 however for one reason, its unique selling point. Unlike other Zombie games, Dead Rising is a bit more realistic in one sense. You can use anything. Think about it, in a real zombie situation would you restrict yourself to a gun or something like a baseball bat? No. You would use anything you can pick up. Funnily enough this bit of realism is what makes Dead Rising so fun. The first being set in a Mall and the second in a recreation of Las Vegas, Dead Rising gives you so many ways to kill zombies you’re practically spoiled.

House of the Dead series.

And now for something a bit more classic. House of the Dead is the typical arcade game that we know and love. Pick up a plastic light gun and shoot at the screen to stop Zombies and other nasties reaching you and eating your brains. It’s had many iterations and the formula still works. They’ve even been rereleased on the Wii so you can play them at home. It’s a tried and tested formula that many other series have also used to its advantage, and uses the Wii’s capabilities to full advantage.

And with that, my quick run-through of my Top Zombie game series is done. Hope you enjoy.

  1. Um where might Resident Evil be… you know… one of the most popular series in gaming history?

    Yeeeaahhh. fake ones. Who even knows if it will happen.

    The Crock-Pot Duo is perfect for entertaining and having the two slow cookers
    that adjust independently of each other. I highly recommend the Crock-Pot Cook Carry Countdown Slow Cooker as a great slow cooker
    that any household would be grateful to have. Make the most
    of your slow cooker by making clean up a breeze with these simple tips.

  4. I don’t want to sound like I’m ripping on the Eden – PURE, but the couple of opinions I had
    been able to get and read weren’t really encouraging or positive. Lasko is committed to bring the product in the market which is eco friendly. We went through two space heaters before purchasing the Lasko 758000 Ceramic Heater.

  5. Most saws can tilt right ot left to allow for
    precise and accurate cutting. Despite its steel roll
    cage base, the Dewalt DW745 table saw is known for its light weight
    and portability. However, along with their usefulness comes the potential for injury.

  6. Finally, don’t forget to include seated dumbbell presses in your routine. Nothing if you got a lot of room or you can afford them. Dumbbells are an irreplaceable asset to any home gym, but a set of adjustable dumbbells will save you a ton of space and money over buying 15 different sets of incrementally weighted dumbbells.

    He stopped offering subsidized oil prices to his own people, because Venezuela was making a
    fortune selling it to the rest of the world. There are two ways to
    go about this, firstly, change your diet and secondly use some natural products that help adjust your sugar levels without the side effects.

    Keeping this craze in mind companies are opening outlets in different
    parts of the world.

    It is extremely important to choose the right piece of equipment for your business, whatever tool it is you need or whatever the customer’s demands are, it’s
    a choice that needs to be done with care. However if you do not need to bring it to another area then there is no need for a portable one.
    Choose air compressor made by a reliable manufacturer.
