Top 10 Post-apocalyptic video games

Greg Burke is back to count down some video games. Please take a look.


In these trying times, it is easy to wonder if the world is ending. We figured it would be a good time to could down the top 10 best post-apocalyptic video games of all-time. We reached out to our staff and community on Twitter as well as our Chatty forum for votes. Please take a look at the video to find out which post-apocalyptic game took our top spot.

For more great videos, including developer interviews and convention coverage for events like E3 or PAX, be sure to check out both Shacknews and over on YouTube.

If you have a suggestion for a future episode of Shack's Top 10, please let us know in the comments section or tweet @shacknews @GregBurke85 with #Top10.

Want to read the list instead? Hit next page to see our text version of the top 10 post-apocalyptic video games. The price of reading instead of watching will be additional pageviews. Pray we don't alter the deal any further.

      You gave Fallout NV the #1 spot over Last of Us???????

      Worst. List. Ever.

        Last of Us has great characterization and atmosphere, but it’s on rails. FO:NV better satisfies what I look for in a post apocalyptic game. I want to head out in any direction and explore the dusty ruins of an expired world, and I want to be able to choose different paths and factions to arrive at the conclusion of the game if I want to.

        Last of Us tells a story that happens to be in an apocalyptic setting, but in new Vegas the world is the story, and I can change that world depending on how I play.

        I think FO:NV is the best post apocalyptic game by a wide margin.

        Disagree personally, Fallout NV is much more fun to actually play I think.

      I disagree with this entire list. Mostly the order but there are a lot of games they aren't even post apocalyptic.

        If the zombie apocalypse counts then the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. games should count, too.

          That’s a massive omission, yeah.

          I think only one person mentioned STALKER in the chatty vote thread.

      I'm surprised to see Mad Max and Days Gone on a top 10 of all time within genre list
