I still don't have any zombie game. I am a big fan of the resident evil 1 - 2 and 3 on playstation. I really enjoy the survivor atmosphere. Do you think this game could be the best for a first jump ? Thx
Dead of Winter is like The Walking Dead. It's not actually about the zombies (well, okay, it becomes more about the zombies in The Long Night), it's about people and their relationships and individual motivations, that "hell is other people" theme of betrayals and people losing their humanity in a world that's fallen apart. It doesn't feel like survival horror at all.
I'll third the recommendation of Mansions of Madness; I think that's way more survival horror-y and immersive.
I always thought DoW was very much like Walking Dead BUT The Long Night version of DoW has a module called Raxxon that is very much like Resident Evil (bosses, heavy weapons, etc.) so I think The Long Night is a cross between Walking Dead and Resident Evil. If you like RE I would definitely give it a try (The Long Night, not the original DoW).
