Best of 2010: Zombie-themed Video Games

Rather than pouring over the “Pro’s” and “Con’s” of all the zombie-themed video games in 2010 (like the nerd I am), I’m going to be magnanimous and recognize the gaming industry and indie game developers for putting out a boat-load of zombie-themed video games this year.

At Bunker Life, we’ve taken note of a ton of games this year (Blood Drive; Call of Duty: Black Ops‘ Zombie Mode; Dead Nation; Dead Rising 2; Organ Trail; Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare; and Rock of the Dead), and we didn’t even scratch the surface when you start taking into mini-games and Apps.  In case you missed it, I did my first game review this year – a “First Impressions” look at Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare.

My hope for 2011 – Rockstar Games develop a full-out “zombie” video game.  No offense, but many of my favorite efforts in 2010 were add-on’s (Red Dead Redemption’s Undead Nightmare / Call of Duty: Black Ops‘ Zombie Mode / etc.).  Rockstar has made some seriously inventive and expansive games.  They have the chops to do an awesome zombie game.

I’m not the only one thinking along these lines – there’s currently a petition for a zombie survivalist-style game – http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/zombierockstar/. Kudos to the gamers taking action on this important issue!
