40. Yakuza: Dead Souls
It's a little tough to explain over and over how and why the zombie apocalypse in gaming relates to the theme of our list, but at the very least Yakuza: Dead Souls is a different experience. For one thing, it's about the weirdest franchise that could explore those circumstances. And secondly, it wasn't exactly treated as the enormous series departure it could have been. With such excellent Yakuza entries in the franchise before it, it should have given players many more options to explore. But it's still an intriguing alternative to games like Left 4 Dead or Dead Island, if only to see Japanese gang members beat up on zombies.
