A list of five games that defined the most fun representations of survival in gaming. From games that simply utilized certain survival elements to games that relied entirely on survival.
I've always wanted to try the Lost in Blue series. Hope they aren't too rare
They are sorta rare. Try emulation. It's not wrong since buying a new copy still wont put any money in the pockets of publisher since game isn't manufactured anymore. That's the only time I feel comfy using emulation if I still dont own the old cartridge (and theres no other means to buy directly from publisher). Too many jerks charge insane prices for rare games on amazon/ebay and the manufacturer isnt getting paid from it anyway...
i really liked 999 and virtues last reward...if those count as survival
DayZ has changed the way I look at the term "Survival" in games. After playing it I can't think of any other game that is as true to the name of the genre. After all your only task is to survive.
I love Lemmings (even lemmings 3d) but I wouldn't exactly call it a survival game (at all). Survival is the background story, but there's no hunting, gathering, stealth, enemies, exploration, etc. It's simply a level based puzzle series.
