Any recommendations or particular favorites that you may remember fondly of?
The ones I remember most are
28 Days Later
28 Weeks Later
The Book of Eli
A Boy and His Dog
the Mad Max movies (only watched the Road Warrior and Beyond Thunderdome as of now)
The Omega Man
The Matrix (didn't watch the sequels)
The Day After Tomorrow
The Terminator films,
And I saw parts of I Am Legend, so I have to re-watch it some time again.
and virtually almost all of the zombie apocalypse films fit the category and it feels like there is a gazillion of those by now, but I haven't watched too many of them other than the "28 _ Later" series, Dawn of The Dead and Land of The Dead.
I'm sure there are more, that I've missed and yet to see. So any recommendations are welcome!
If there's one thing that's most important about these films that I've noticed is that even in the worst and bleakest hopeless times, people won't simply give up on their lives and give up living, they keep going forward, they continue to fight for their survival no matter what as there's no going back to the way things once were before their world has totally turned upside down into a complete dystopian world that is a complete utter nightmare.
They face the reality that is in front of them, the fate they are given and they will do what they can with whatever is left and whatever and whomever that they have left and do whatever they must even when it all seems lost and hopeless.

Love apocalyptic movies and games. Think my favorite was The Day After Tomorrow. I also recommend the movie "Doomsday" though, pretty much a zombie movie but focusing a lot on humans instead.
