1.  Ark: Survival Evolved

As the most popular survival game on Steam, Ark has a lot to live up to. But the anachronistic wonder somehow manages it, allowing you to fight, ride and tame dinosaurs, build your own base and attack other players.

The game takes place over an area of 48 km2  (the “Ark), within which dinosaurs of all shapes and sizes roam freely, as well as many other prehistoric creatures such as mammoth and sabre-toothed cats. And just in case you were about to say “but humans and dinosaurs never existed together”, can I just add that you have the ability to craft firearms in the base game.

Players can ride the dinosaurs, tame them and use them as guard dogs, or use them to attack and destroy other players’ bases. Additionally, you can breed them to create darling little death monsters.

The main components of the survival genre are all there: base-building, farming, crafting, life and death battles, annoying meters for food and water, and weapons being found in the unlikeliest places.

While it’s currently unfinished, it has the potential to be one of the best survival games we’ve seen in a long time. So check it out today, while it’s still on Early Access, and support the devs to help make it even better.
