Survival games are a subgenre of action video games, often set in a hostile, intense open world-world environment, usually placing players in a setting with minimal equipment and forcing them to collect resources, craft tools, weapons and shelter.
Survival games are often designed to be single-player, adding to the intense gameplay as the player attempts to survive alone, but more and more are being released that are multiplayer both in PvE and PvP.
Both single-player and multiplayer games are adopting crafting mechanics, giving another level of immersion as the player characters are often forced to survive weather conditions by building fires or shelter to stay dry and warm, or hunt for their own food so not to starve.
The idea here is to provide the players with another level of challenge and to make characters more believable and easy to connect with from a player point of view.
Though most games won’t offer a winning condition for players, such as in Minecraft and Ark: Survival Evolved, others such as Dead by Daylight and GTFO task the players to adapt to their surroundings quickly and work towards an escape.
Survival games come in all shapes, from 2D side scroller such as Terraria, to isometric or third-person and first-person such as Minecraft and DayZ. All have their own unique enemies, skills and ideas, but all of them share the common goal of challenging the players to explore, learn and survive in hostile and unknown surroundings.
In survival games, there is no time for hesitation.
This is where Tags come in.
In the world of Strategy Games, fantastic games can be found at incredible prices but you can also be at a greater risk of being left disappointed.
Not all games reach their potential and get a release, unfortunately many games are left abandoned by their developers or are even released in a poor state and are yet still available to purchase on Steam.
Steam is in the business of selling games and sometimes that can mean a drop in quality in order to get more titles onto the Steam Store and available for purchase.
At Allkeyshop, we believe in quality over quantity and because of that we use every bit of data that Steam offers and we use that to provide the most detailed analysis of a game’s ranking.
Our rankings will take all available pieces of data into account, in particular we focus on the real ratings, real opinions and recommendations of those that play the game.
As a part of our ranking, we ensure that only those that own the game, have it currently available in their library and are logged into their account can vote for their favourite games. This, along with our other data, ensures we have the most accurate ranking system possible.
We only show the top 15 games so that you are not overwhelmed with hundreds of games and swamped in too much data. We plan on refreshing our top 15 each week, but we may change this plan if we find it has a real demand from you, our users.
Allkeyshop is a price comparator site with the intention of giving players the best price possible for the best games available. We remain fully impartial on prices and sellers, displaying both online sites and platforms such Steam, Origin and Epic, and we remain completely impartial on the rating of those games that we highlight in our rankings.
Our rankings are based on our users with no influence from us and we will remain impartial on the ratings and the rankings of all games.
