The survival genre has been growing at an incredible rate lately, thanks to games like Minecraft, Fallout, DayZ and State of Decay, the genre is thriving. Below is a list of what we think are the 10 greatest survival games.
I guess it doesn't really count but I thought Farcry 2 and 3 deserve spots on the list. You had to deal with malaria in no. 2 and animals and random patrols of pirates in no. 3. Not to mention you could hunt, take out hits and harvest plants and such for survival perks.
However, Far Cry 3 was one of the easiest games ever made. @HOlY S**T! a shark just bit me! Wait what? It only just takes of a single health bar on hard? Lame." *EDIT* Anyone know whats going on with bubbles? I haven't had this many since I was a young boy.
Bubbles have been reset, I think there will be a new comment system soon. There was a blog addressing this, check it out if you're interested.
I don't feel Alan Wake would benefit from being an open world game. It's a story driven game, it was interesting and if it was open world, then you would be going off doing side quests and forgetting the story. Collecting manuscripts was pretty cool and being able to read the story.
DayZ is a great survival game. But where's ZombiU, it's pretty good, especially with that perma-death thing where you have to re-kill yourself. Otherwise this is a pretty solid list.
This list is missing Stalker.
Why no The Last of Us?
