5. Zombies Ate My Neighbours
Zombies At my Neighbours isn't just a zombie game - it's a glorious ode to horror cinema, from the camp and ridiculousness of the 1950s B-movie to 80s slashers like Friday the 13th and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. The game - which was released in 1993 for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System and Sega Genesis - allow players to take control of Zeke and his sister Julie through 55 stages of monster mayhem. Along the way you'll fight everything from vampires and werewolves to giant demonic babies and evil dolls. And zombies. Lots and lots of zombies. The joy of Zombies Ate my Neighbours isn't in its mechanics, because it's a simple top down shooter in the same vein as Alien Syndrome or the ungodly-atrocious Uncanny X-Men for NES. No, the fun of this game comes from its campy humour and the surprising immerse nature of its gameplay. An early foray into survival horror, Zombies Ate my Neighbours actually requires some restraint and tactical consideration in order to progress, which is surprising because this is a game where you can actually kill a demon with a water balloon. But that's the surprising beauty to this underappreciated classic - it's a fine mix of comedy and horror. And the two-player mode isn't too shabby, either.
