Below is the top survival games that you should play in 2022.
Minecraft is best known for the creative endeavors it has inspired, such as the construction of all of Middle-Earth, but there's also a survival game in there, full of deadly nights and Creepers ready to blow up everything you've worked so hard to create. You will be accompanied by hunger, thirst, and death as you dig underground and explore infinite, procedural worlds teeming with monsters and dungeons.
With a fantastic crafting system, you have a lot of leeway in terms of how you survive. You could build automated systems and vast mines, becoming an industrial powerhouse, or you could live a simpler life, raising animals and growing crops. With all of the mods and game modes available, you can essentially create your own survival game, or you can focus on something else, such as building a flying pirate ship with a group of friends. If you're looking for an extra challenge, there's a hardcore survival mode that deletes the entire world when you die. It is not for the weak of heart.
2. No Man's Sky
It's easy to exaggerate the notion that No Man's Sky was a flop when it first came out and has only clawed its way back to respectability in the years since. Closer to the truth would be to say that it did an excellent job of providing a specific type of experience at launch (and sold a lot of them), and that it now provides a more diverse set of experiences. One of those experiences has been survival from the beginning to the present. You can play No Man's Sky on a set of hostile worlds, scrambling for resources to build a shelter or fuel the next desperate jump across the galaxy. It will now reward you with more beautiful and varied planets, giant sandworms, mechs to pilot, friends to team up with, and much more. There are better survival games on this list - in fact, 20 of them - but few of them can compete with No Man's Sky in terms of scale and polish.
3. 7 Days To Die
In 7 Days To Die, a night scene depicts three zombies stumbling toward your character.
At first glance, 7 Days To Die appears to be just another zombie game, the point where Minecraft inexplicably collides with the likes of DayZ. However, dismissing it based on its crude graphics and misshapen landscapes would be greatly underestimating this muddy-looking craft 'em up, as it's probably the closest thing to an interactive zombie movie we've ever had. The zombies are true Romero-style meatbags, their slow, shuffling corpses barely registering your presence as you scavenge further and further away with each new scavenging trip.
Everything is meant to lull you into a false sense of security. When you hunker down at night, you think to yourself, "Yeah, those traps will do the trick." The game then unleashes a swarm on you, and all hell breaks loose. It's classic zombie movie folly 101. You should have known better, but you keep falling into their trap every damn time. Finally, 7 Days To Die understands how to apply just the right amount of pressure to keep you on your toes - as long as it doesn't chew them off in your sleep first.
4. Ultra Pixel Survive
Ultra pixel survive is a role-playing survival game with 2D pixel art visual. You take the role of a hero and gather resources, build structures, craft weapons, and defend yourself against the monsters. It is available for different platforms.
