Seven days to die  is one of the best survival games you need to play. The game, as you can see from its name, is about surviving for seven days, and every day the number of zombies will increase, and that's mean more pressure on you to survive in various ways, and indeed, more pressure on that base that you need to protect for seven days.

You need to build and fortify your base in the early days before you are overtaken by hordes of zombies. The game's world is massive and full of resources and unpleasant surprises.

Scum is a zombie-building game steeped in realism. The game wants you to stop eating a lot to prevent your body  from gaining more weight and become fat. Not only that, but while crossing a river, you may drown because of your weight.

Scum is specially made for those hard-core survival gamers who love the little details that make the world more difficult to survive in.

So you may not like it if you are someone who wants a quick and fun game to spend some times relaxing because this game needs a lot of focus and attention to small details so you don't become the next zombie dinner.

The game features impressive graphics, amazing environment, and many details to build your base professionally and realistically.

Number 4: They Are Billions

Available on: PC, PS4, Xbox One

They are Billions is a different and unique game from the usual base building zombie games.

 In this game you have to keep eight colonies from falling at the hands of zombie hordes that have infected the new planet.

What is different about this game is that it's similar in some way or another to strategy games like Red Alert and Civilization.

 You will recruit soldiers, make fences, put machines and robots to survive the sweeping zombie attack.

Zombies here are not joking, they can attack with billions without exaggeration.

No game has ever had so many zombies, and you'll need to think fast to fortify all your colonies with all your resources before they get swept away in the endless zombie river.

They Are Billions is a unique game, and undoubtedly worth trying.


Number 3: Project Zomboid

Available on: PC, OS X, Linux

Project zomboid is a different game from everygame I just mentioned on this list, it's true that it is similar to them in building the base and trying to survive in a world infested with zombies, but it is very different in term of gameplay.

 The game is not only forcing you to survive, but also wants you to watch over the food while it's being cooked, keeping an eye on your house so that it does'nt burn while you are busy, and to collect enough resources every day so you can have a chance to survive in such a cruel world.

 The variety in this game is tremndous, and the fun is endless.

You can grow crops, catch fish and make an electric generator to keep you warm.

 The number of zombies in the game is enermous, and zombies may surround you from every direction often, and you will have to die a lot to learn to survive and build a strong base.

 The game will force you to leave your house sooner or later, for example if your generator runs out of fuel you will have to get in your car and go to the nearest gas station to get fuel, but sadly you'll find hundreds of zombies waiting for you.

 There is no doubt that Project Zombiod is one of the most interesting base building surviving games, and what makes it even more beautiful is that you can play it with your friends.


Number 2: Minecraft

Available on: PC, PS3, PS4, PS5, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Xbox Series S/X, Nintendo Switch, IOS, Android

I see some people is amazed that Minecraft is on this list, but how can I not add Minecraft and it's the game that inspired all the Base building, survival zombie games, and it's a game about building a base and fighting zombies and monsters at night, all these things and more make it worth adding to this the list.

Minecraft is not for the fans of realism, but it is undoubtedly one of the greatest base building survival games, and it's by no means the most interesting and famous.

 the diversity in the world is astonishing. There's  no limit to what you can do in this game.

 You can even take some slaves and make them breed children to serve you.

If you dig underground, you will find cities and tunnels, if you go into the world, you will find villages and many fascinating things.

 Of course we won't forget to mention "Creeper" who scared me more than the Xenomorph in Alien: Isolation, or the slenderman.

 I don't remember how often  I cried when I suddenly found him in my face exploding, destroying my only house, which I spent hours building and decorating.

Minecraft is one of the most enjoyable game.  You can play it alone or with your friends, and it's now much easier to play it because it's now available on mobile devices.


Number 1: DayZ

Available on: PC, PS4, Xbox One

The survival genre owes a great debt to DayZ, which began life as a mod for military simulator ARMA II.

In DayZ you need to survive not only from zombies but also from other human scavengers trying to kill you to get the resources you collected along the way.

Buliding a base is a core element in this game to master surviving, you need to gather as many resources as you can from cities, houses, and other players etc.

DayZ suceeded to become one of the greatest base building surviing game ever made. With a lot of praise from critics and players, DayZ is a blast and you must absolutely try it.

It's the end of my list. Do you agree with it? Tell us in the comments.

After dying thousands of times in the souls genre I started to think about the reason for my existence, are we here to suffer? In order to answer this question, I decided to write gaming articles.
