Anybody knows a TRUE survival game? - A Forum Thread for GameBanana.

Please recommend me one

Hey Bananites, I'm looking for a PC game to play that focuses on the pure survival aspect. And by survival I don't mean survival horror (zombies/monsters shooters) or survival mode (where you fight waves of enemies). But rather the "castaway - survive in the wild" type - look for food/water, resources, build a shelter, protect yourself against the harsh environment/predators. **Prefeably 3D, so no archaic roguelike games please.** Here's a list of games that I already played, to give you an idea: • Stranded 2
• Fallout: New Vegas - Hardcore Mode
• Minecraft
• Unturned (2)
• Garry's Mod - Stranded
• The Sims: Castaway Stories Upcoming/Early Acess games I'm interested in: • [Rust](http://facepunch.com/showthread.php?t=1328325 "") (by Garry Newman)
• [7 Days to Die](http://7daystodie.com/ "")
• [The Forest](http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=143803558 "")
• [Stranded 3](http://stranded3.com/ "")
• [DayZ](http://dayzgame.com/ "") (Standalone)
• [Stranded Deep](http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=125252723 "")
• [Strive](http://strivegame.blogspot.co.il/ "") Games I already heard of, but not interested: • Don't Starve
• Under The Garden
• Neo Scavenger
• Miasmata
• Notrium
• Dwarf Fortress
• DayZ (ArmA 2 Mod)
• Heaven & Hearth
• Salem
• Wurm Online
• Gnomoria Thanks in advance for suggestions.

    > **Posted by Pingypoker** > 7 Days to Die is pretty good. Haven't seen this one before. I think maybe a screenshot of a zombie horde and people with guns, which could be what discouraged me looking further into it. Edit: Just watched the features overview video, and I couldn't be more wrong. That game is packed with so many cool things that are relevant to my interests, thanks. > **Posted by Fredboy** > Man vs. Wild: The Game Not for PC though.
