ESH | 2012 – The Year of Zombie Games Part 4

In a year that had more than a few excel­lent zom­bie games, there was one that stood above the rest.  Fea­tur­ing one of the most emo­tional, shock­ing and gut-wrenching sto­ries told all year this game, which is num­ber one on my list from 2012, is the best zom­bie game released that year.  By now, it’s pretty obvi­ous that I’m talk­ing about the episodic adven­ture mas­ter­piece from the folks over at Tell­tale: The Walk­ing Dead.

ESH | 2012 – The Year of Zombie Games Part 3

It was a pretty dark year for a par­tic­u­lar zombie-based sur­vival hor­ror series.  With three releases, at least one of them was bound to be pretty decent.  In the end, Cap­com did release one good game in the Res­i­dent Evil fran­chise this year, but it wasn’t the one I was expecting.

ESH | 2012 – The Year of Zombie Games Part 2

A lot of games that involve the liv­ing dead are pretty lax about the rules that come with a zom­bie apoc­a­lypse.  Specif­i­cally, that when you are bit­ten by a zom­bie, even just a lit­tle bit, you’re going to be one of them pretty quickly.  One game this year took this con­cept and turned itself not only into one of the more real­is­tic zom­bie sur­vival games, but one of my favorites of the entire year.

ESH | 2012 — The Year of Zombie Games Part 1

Play­ing through the games that have come out this year, I’ve noticed a very inter­est­ing pat­tern to the ones I’ve enjoyed the most.  Sev­eral of my per­sonal favorites through­out the year have fea­tured zom­bie, or zombie-like, crea­tures.  As such, in lieu of a stan­dard game-of-the-year-type count­down, this year I’d like to recount each of my favorite titles from the last 365 days with undead crea­tures.  The first game on the docket to dis­cuss tech­ni­cally does not have zom­bies in it, but you’d have to admit that the crea­tures found within were at least heav­ily inspired by brain-chomping ghouls.
