7. ARK: Survival Evolved

ARK: Survival Evolved gameplay

The island of Ark is big, beautiful, and full of Jurassic dangers. As a survivor you’re trapped on the island and must hunt, harvest and craft to survive, but beyond survival you can tame dinosaurs and other creatures, research new technology that will help you go from the stone age into an age of science fiction, and build massive player bases alone, or with your friends.

While you have to worry about standard survival game aspects like food, water, cold and diseases, the dinosaurs are what truly make Ark: Survival Evolved stand out among the pack. From good traveler mounts like the Raptor or the prehistoric giant bird Argentavis, to warrior dinos like the Carnotaurus or the T-rex, or collector/farming dinos like the Ankylosaurus or the giant frog Beelzebufo; there’s a dinosaur for every purpose and they’re all fun to control and command. Once you’re advanced enough, you’ll have your base looking snazzy in full metal walls, upgraded your wooden spear to a laser rifle, and have enough dinosaurs to start a small zoo. Just take care so the rival base over the river doesn’t get too tempted to raid you, and if they do, striking first might just be a viable option.

Did we mention you can trigger major world events and fight (or in some cases tame) really difficult bosses? We call this one Scortchy...he didn't like that name.

There is no limit to just how grandiose and complex you can build your bases, here you see some players who've stuck to the medieval period, but you could just as easily create a Mecca of robotic gadgets and laser-shows.
