I'm sure a lot of people already started posts like this one in the past, but I wanted to create it by myself to get answered directly
Today I started watching The Walking Dead (yeah I know, I should have done this a long time ago, but better late than never) and felt like I want to play a zombies game.
I want to ask you if you could recommend me any type of zombies game: I already played L4D series, WarZ, Dead Island and Dead Frontier. I may revisit L4D2 since it was a great game, but right now I'm searching for something more "Walking Dead"-type. Dead Frontier was probably the one that approached the most (as far as I know) to this concept, but it started to feel repetitive and boring at the end (still a great browser game, you should try it!).
Do you guys know any more games that I should try?
Well if you're looking for a 'Walking Dead' type game I suggest you play 'The Walking Dead' video game. It is excellent, though don't go in expecting an fps. It is pretty much a misery simulator. That is to say...it tries to capture the despair that comes with living in a world where the human race is doomed. It is on sale today for half off on Steam.
Edit: just realized you just started watching the tv series so it is important to note that TWD game is telling a new story, just set within the same world as the show/comics. For the most part there are completely different characters (although 2 characters from the show are portrayed in what I guess can be called extended cameos set before the events of the tv series).
If you havent checked it out, look up DayZ. Its the ultimate post zombie apocalyptic survival game. Open world, lots of weapons, multiplayer. Huge world. You have to eat to stay alive, whether you find cans of food or shoot animals. Watch out when you make a fire to cook though because people can see the smoke in the distance. You can group up and work as a team or be a lone wolf. Zombies are hard to shake off, they will chase you the entire time if they can. You can repair vehicles and drive them and even helicopters. You have to navigate with the sun and moon until you get a map, but using a map has a new set of challenges as well.
ATM its an ARMA 2 Mod, but a stand alone game is in development.
I've played almost all zombie related games and this one is the bees knees for me. Its hard as hell but man it is worth it. Make sure when you play to have the sound turned up, it can save your life more than you think.
I never played DayZ but I do own WarZ. I know they are different games but still I find them similar in a lot of ways. What I hate about WarZ is the lack of penalties if someone kills you, making the game a true pain in the ass to play.
Can any of you provide me with some of your best Free to play(no pay to win) Browser based RTS games. I have done some googling and can only come up with thos where you have to pay for gems, gold coins etc to buy better or stronger stuff... So bring it up peeps.

I couldn't care less about the graphics or if it came out in 2012 or 1992. I'm just looking for some ideas for solid rpgs with replay value and a good story. Something you can play at least twice if not more with a different character and come out with a different outcome each time. For the PC.
Ridiculous replay value. I swear to god I beat both of them like 10 times and each time I found something new.
Awesome story on both, so many quests (and different ways to solve them), fuckloads of builds, actual meaningful dialog options with different outputs (not like these days when they give you 5 options to choose but only 1 is correct)... great writing too, some really funny shit + awesome soundtrack.
EDIT: it is very open world and sandboxy too if you like those. also kinda adult orientated: lots of curses, sex, drugs and rock'n'roll all over the place (especially the sequel).
what can I say, I'm a huge fan ;p
(if you're gonna try it make sure you get unofficial resolution patch)
