    "I love to play the video games and this one is about war so there is much action to be had. The name of it is the Total War: Arena and it is soo good! You can even play it for free, online with other people that are also online. It is a war simulation game and boy is it a fun one, you should play too!"

      "PUBG is currently the best survival game for PC today. Funny how it is not really in the mold of those traditional post-apocalyptic or cyberpunk survival game and yet it dominates the genre. That said, I think one of its allure is that it is free and you can win without spending too much in the game. Overall, it has the best of everything and it is not surprising that it is on top of this list."

I don't agree that you need to play the first few games in this series to be able to be competitive. This game has it all. And I am glad that people are recognizing it for what it is worth."

At least for me, that is. You need to have skills in this game, a combination of strategic and tactical savvy with an insane amount of luck to be successful. LOL LOL LOL"

    DID YOU KNOW

    Did you know that LucasArts' and Konami's Zombies Ate My Neighbors is accepted as the first zombie game? It was a run and gun video game created by Lucas Arts and was published by Konami in 1993 and was offered for the Super NES and Sega Mega Drive/Genesis platform. It did not become a commercial success but received fair reviews, particularly from Sega-16.com writer Mike Seiblier, who praised the game's featured weapons, sounds, and effects, and The Armchair Empire staff, which praised the weapon system of the game. Despite its struggles commercially, LucasArts and Konami released a sequel titled Ghoul Patrol in 1994.  The game also became a cult classic when zombie movies took over the big screens and was re-released for modern platforms like the Wii Virtual Console and Xbox 360. Game review website IGN gave the game an Editor's Choice Award and announced that the game was one of the most requested games to be included in Wii's VC adaptations. The game could also be adapted into a movie according to a 2011 article in Empire Online, which said that Insidious screenwriter John Darko is in the process of securing rights from LucasArts and raising the budget for the production of the film.

I found the gaming community in Rust to be completely cancerous. People will befriend you just to know when you are offline just to steal your stuff. There is no real reason to try to progress in this game at all."

Despite being an older game, the graphics are top notch... you can almost taste the iron in the pools of blood. And, because you're just a reporter, you don't have any bad-ass skillset; you can't just fight your way through. Instead, you've got to slink around, and hope nothing kills you too soon. This is just a brilliant game; I think I've freaked out some of my friends by how much I enjoy it. It's no coincidence it's set in Colorado, is all I'm saying..."

      "I absolutely love horror-themed games, and Outlast gave me chills for days. The graphics and shadows were among the best I have EVER seen, and the environment was incredibly detailed and immersive. The only part I didn't like is that your character is a reporter, and not armed. So instead of fighting your way out of the Creepy Critters in the asylum gameworld, you have no choice but to run, jump and hide from them. But that is the only thing keeping me from giving Outlast a five-star rating."

You forget how far they've come with this stuff, but the HD version is definitely a step up from the original, the game comes to life a bit more than before. Still probably the best survival game ever created."

On top of this, it has good reviews and it's a pretty high budget game. A lot of effort put into the game means more quality. I'd say it's a solid game and worth it for the money seeing as how it's relatively cheap."

Left 4 Dead solves it, in a way, similarly does every other zombie survival game. From the looks of it, I would reword it to solve the problem of the lack of "wilderness survival games for PC.""

      "Don't Starve Together is a survival game for PC. I suppose it solves the problem if it was a problem. Before you can say it's a problem, you need to say how it's a problem. Left 4 Dead solves it, in a way, similarly does every other zombie survival game. From the looks of it, I would reword it to solve the problem of the lack of "wilderness survival games for PC.""

I ran across this and noticed it came in a two-pack which was perfect. This has given us hours of fun and does everything it says it does. We been playing for hours just building a base and trying to survive together."

      "Since Halloween is just around the corner, I wanted to find a good survival game on PC. It seems around this time every year I get the urge to play anything that has a horror theme. I found Penumbra: Black Plague Gold Edition on Steam for sale so I decided to give it a try. The game is okay and has a good storyline. The only drawback is the graphics, which are outdated."

      "Penumbra: Black Plague Gold Edition is a beautiful survival game for PC. I love this genre, and I played many games, but I must admit that Penumbra is one of my favorite games of all time. I like having to solve puzzles, and then to fight to save my life.. Funny!! :)"

      "Good enough game if you have time to waste. But if you are a hard-core gamer and expects the good-old Metal Gear games, you'd be super disappointed with Metal Gear Survive. Just play with the old Metal Gear game. You'll enjoy it more. If you're looking for really good survival games, the top 15 in this list are pretty good."

This game sucks on so many levels. I wouldn't waste my time to describe it. I only commented here to let you know that this game sucks and shouldn't have even been published at all. It feels like a CASH-GRAB!"

      "This game started my doubt with regards to the reviews on Steam. They actually said that more people liked and approve of this game. I don't understand!!! Maybe they asked the wrong people because when it comes down to survival games? I'm pretty sure it will not crack the top 50 of any list. For me, it is just not that interesting."

But once you get right down to it, you'll notice that what's good on the outside doesn't match what's inside. Sure you can play this game and there are some parts that are good. But dang, it's just a waste of time. THERE ARE BETTER GAMES THAN THIS FOR THE SAME PRICE!!!"
