Pop a wheelie on those zombies!
They also have DRIVABLE vehicles. Do you know how useful that’ll be, especially in a zombie apocalypse. Just roll the windows up, lock the doors and sleep through the night without having to watch you back! (Not an actual option in the game.)

6. The Walking Dead: Season 3
The bravest little girl.
Season 1 was the perspective of Lee. Season 2 was Clementine. Season 3? Take on the adventure of surviving a zombie apocalypse and meeting other survivors that you might or might not fall out with. Will you make it?

The gameplay will share what it had from the previous seasons. Since this is a game by the ever so wonderful Telltale you’ll be making a lot of IMPORTANT decisions. These decisions will alter your conclusion. Making it better or worst.
Season 3 will be similar to season 2.
You are often timed on making choices. If you don’t make a choice fast enough the game carries on as if you didn’t say or do anything. Which may be problematic for the future. The game always keeps you guessing.

Can they be any more intimidating?
Using this zapping system will help you solve puzzles you come across. And no, you can’t solve it with only one person, they each have their own abilities that the other person would need.
4. Street Fighter V

Time to be reduced to Cave Man tools.
