    I am newbie in gaming and try to learn more about games every day.
    Fell really sorry I've started too late, but happy I've started at all.
    Can you recommend me a survival game, please? Something like Minecraft or Fallout Shelter, but with better graphics.
    And one more thing - I have only PC so I am able to play only PC games.
    Thanks!

    Rust is a terrible experience for new players unless you stay strictly to low population servers.
    I would say The Forest or even Conan Exiles in PVE mode is a much better game to start with.

    As others have mentioned:
    -Forest
    -Subnautica
    -The Long Dark
    -Ark - Survival evolved (still kinda buggy, but I sank enough fun hours in it).
    -Rust
    -7 days to die
    -Don't starve together

    If survival RTS is something you want to try:
    -Frostpunk and They are billions

    Forest is great at the beginning as you try and establish yourself on the map. You can get very crafty in the game and build some really great stuff. In coop its a lot of fun too. But I feel like the 'survival' aspect goes down a little the more you progress in the game. I would recommend The Long Dark out of the first list; I find it very immersive.

    They Are Billions is just... intense and very unforgiving, but a whole lot of fun. I have raged uninstalled that game god knows how many times.

    SCUM is a decent stab at a survival game and is in remarkable shape for an Early Access title. They added cars in December, which makes things even more interesting. Oh, and there's lots of wang ;)

    A lot of trashy steam early access games being mentioned here.. I'd say stay clear. Maybe Subnautica if you want something that wouldnt make the average person laugh if the title's name were to be seen attached to the word "quality".
    In the case that trashy is something you look for then a lot of compatible options have already been mentioned. No shortage of those.

    Far Cry 3. It's not only survival, but you're also playing the hero trying to save all your friends.

    Genuinely, no joke.

    Fallout 76.

    No npc humans, no major story. You just explore, craft and build a hut/base while surviving. Even bring some friends and get some cool loot. As a fallout game, its crap as a explore/survival game its one of the best. its damn cheap too.


    Rust is one of the best online but it can be incredibly toxic.

    If by 'a lot' you mean less than half of all mentioned, then yes it sure can be 'a lot' to some people. Good eye.

    Yea subnautica was the survival game that even people hated survival games liked :p.

    I heard good buzz about the forest even my generally non gaming buddy was raving @ me about how awesome the forest is or was.

    And rust gets some mentions as a top contender in that scene.

    Who knows this trend will go on a bit longer before it implodes. The ones that want to make it are going to have to innovate in unique ways. I know the one tried making a big thing that you had animated bowel movements and peeing animations. well not quite that for innovation but hey its a start. add in fapping animations and maybe you got something :p.

    Subnautica is alright, just a shame it's a stutter fest thanks to Unity.

    Half Life 1 (1998). Still the best survival game ever imho.

    LISTEN YOU!

    Jk. But he is new to gaming as mentioned; so irregardless of one feel about survival games or early access, good advice must be given. Most of the games I mentioned have got excellent steam reviews (aka not 'trashy' except maybe to you, which is fine) and only 2 or 3 were early access. I don't think what you said was accurate.

    Not the best graphicswise, bit janky and quite punishing but I recommend Miasmata.

    It's survival done a bit different. Also opposed to games like The Forest there is a clear objective you work towards and then game is complete.

    Positively surprised me. You need to use your wits quite a bit too.
