Zombies in Video Games: A Look Back

Zombies have taken over GamerSushi! As Eddy mentioned, a lot of people are getting zombie fatigue, but GamePro was nice enough to take a look back at a history of zombies in video games throughout the years and it’s quite a nice way to get back into the undead spirit.

Personally, Dry Bones from Super Mario Bros 3 didn’t strike me as a zombie, but since they included him, I can’t help but agree. Which leads me to wonder why some Koopa Troopas rise from their graves to torment Mario again and some don’t. Maybe Magikoopa brings them back? Also, Zombies Ate My Neighbors was the bomb back in the SNES days.

Anyway, head here to check out the feature. And don’t act snooty because you know you love zombies, too.

  1. I like zombies. I don’t care if they seem repetitive; if the zombie game has some kind of unique feature or is simply executed well, I like it. Left 4 Dead is my favorite zombie game, but if only there was more content at a faster pace! Ugh, Vaaalve! You and your Half Life Episode 3 syndrome…

  2. B-R-A-I-N-S!!!

    I always liked the House of the Dead games. HOTD: Overkill was great fun with two players and copious amounts of alcohol.

    And why was Digital Pictures’ masterpiece, Corpse Killer, off Gamepro’s list?


    I’m almost ashamed to admit that I actually owned this game for Sega CD at one point…but I think I’m more ashamed for owning a 32x CD version of Night Trap.
