Zombies have been an obsession with gamers for decades. People have always found horror entertaining. Unlike other genres of games, survival horror gives you unique feelings of dread. People will always fear mass destruction, genocidal viruses, and dying. Those games let you experience what would happen if our world fell apart. What is more thrilling than surviving in a world where most humans have turned to brainless flesh-eaters? How about owning an arsenal of deadly weapons and actually having a legal excuse to use them?
Zombie lovers prepare! Here are the best zombie games of 2019. One is already a hit among players. Others are yet to be released!
Resident Evil 2 (Remake)

The game will take you back to the roots of survival games. It takes place just after the original Resident Evil game.

The original Last of Us game is legendary in the genre. Half a decade later, we are finally getting the anticipated sequel. It has been scheduled for 2019 but there is no release date yet. We do, however, know key details about the game itself.
The sequel will focus a lot more on Ellie, instead of Joe. After all, she is the key to the cure. We will now know more about her back story and events throughout her life. The story itself will be set five years after the events in the first game.
