The best survival games in the video special: We voted in the editorial office and present you our shopping guide to the best games with a pronounced urge to survive. No matter if Rust, DayZ or The Forest, you usually get food, good equipment and a roof over your head. In our video special we tell you the best (as of January 2020) best offshoots of the genre.

In DayZ, Rust or The Forest the main goal is to survive! The genre of survival games offers many other offshoots in addition to the first three. We voted in the editorial office and present our top 10 best survival games in the video special below these lines. Whether block graphics in Minecraft or a hard-hitting shooter like DayZ – the urge to keep his character alive appeals to game fans around the world.

Many of the games included in the video are not triple-A games with a 90 rating. Obviously, this doesn't have to be the case in order to present game fans with a unique gaming experience. For example, while you tame dinosaurs in Ark: Survival Evolved to secure your survival with them, you fight your way through the barbaric game world in Conan Exiles based on the model of the Schwarzenegger cinema hit. The fan base of these games is loyal and, according to websites, invests like Steamspy still an unbelievable amount of playing time.

The game goal of survival has now also arrived in the genre of building strategy. However, adventures like Frostpunk or Surviving Mars narrowly miss our top 10 survival games, but are shown as an honorable mention at the end of the video. Did you like the survival games as well?
