Developer Capcom / release date 2006
At the time of release there wasn’t anything quite like it, especially in the western market. DeadRising is completely over the top and thoroughly entertaining. You play as photojournalist Frank West trapped inside a shopping mall and you’ll need to do, and use, whatever you can to survive. The series has spawned three sequels since, all of which are now available on the Xbox One. Every game in the series plays in much the same fashion but with increasingly creative and ridiculous ways to slaughter the rambling dead. Each game also contains various zombie Easter eggs and homages.
