Best Survival Games for Weak PC

Lists aren't always perfect and getting unanimity on them is a virtually impossible task. That's why we've organized our list by alphabetical order. That is, survival games for weak PCs that come first are not necessarily better than those at the bottom of the list.

Let's play!

1. 7 Days to Die

This game is a wonderful cross between DayZ, Minecraft and Ark. I feel the game is an improvement on raiding Ark, the stats and abilities allow kills to be less punishing than DayZ and many items are crafted from raw resources that don't take long to harvest.

11. STALKER: Shadow of Chernobyl

In 1986, the world's worst nuclear disaster occurred at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant. The Soviet authorities established an “Exclusion Zone” close by, but a second explosion hit the reactor in 2006, creating the Zone as we know it – a dangerous place full of mutated creatures, lethal radiation and strange anomalous energy. The Zone was cordoned off by the military, who would shoot anyone foolish enough to enter.

Year 2022. The Zone is still a dangerous place and a threat to all humanity. Mercenaries, bounty hunters and explorers have ventured further and further into the heart of the Zone, spurred on by reports of strange "artifacts" imbued with anomalous energy. To sell them on the black market or try to find the “truth” behind the Zone. Whatever their motivation, over time these individuals became known as STALKERs.

16. Terraria

I had heard that Terraria was better than Minecraft. I thought “no way!”. But everything changed soon after playing for the first time! One of the main features of the game is the variety of bosses – so far I have defeated 6. Just yesterday I defeated the Wall of Flesh! Some of the coldest bosses: Skeletron Prime, the Goblin Army, the Pirate Army, Devourer of Worlds and Duke Fishron! This game is really amazing!

17. This War of Mine

In my opinion, a good game entertains, while a great game creates a lasting impression of being entertained. This War of Mine goes beyond that, also impacting how I feel about certain in-game decisions and causing self-reflection. These emotions wouldn't be possible without the game being really in the first place.
