I play a lot of these. If you're a non-PC master race, good luck finding good ones. Steam has a lot of promising ones in alpha and beta.
-the long dark
-dayZ (more zombies though)
-Minecraft with mods and texture packs (lies realistic but there are many ways to play this game)
I really liked MGS3. It's a great game but it has a some survivalism features as well as camouflage system and field medicinary stuff too.
I'm a fan of MGS too but calling it an /out/ game is equivalent to calling NFS a car simulator.
The Vanishing of Ethan Carter (I think >>491505 is a screenshot from it)
I think a lot of the computer game community don't like these, I see comments about them "not being games" because they don't have any guns or you don't collect coins, but they're both narrative driven adventures where you wonder around beautiful scenery at a walking pace.
The Long Dark is a survival game that's about making it in the frozen Canadian wilderness. I only gave that one a quick try but it looks promising.
Yeah DayZ is one of the few games that has captured the scale of the countryside. I think it's how sluggish and slow the movement is, because it's designed to be this military simulation, the game world actually feels appropriately sized. You can spend half an hour just trekking through some woods.
-long dark is fun for about 8 hours of gameplay until you realize how terribly unfinished it is. There is nothing to do.
-the forest. same problem.
-rust, alpha rust was awesome. WTF were they thinking changing it so much. total crap now
-day z. ugh. let me know when that game is fixed then maybe it will be fun
They released a game that's similar to Dayz but far more fluid called H1Z1.
Skyrim also has some mods which enhance its realism, adding warmth/hypothermia, campfires, hunger, fishing, and sleepiness. Honestly, it's as good as your probably going to get.
/out/ is a pretty broad topic, so generally "it depends on what you mean".
That said, these games I enjoy for the same reasons I enjoy going out:
Dwarf Fortress adventure mode
Knytt, Knytt Stories, An Untitled Story
Nehrim (Oblivion Total conversion)
Shadow Of The Colossus

I almost cried everytime when she died
Every time I see this faggotry I imagine it coming from some crotchety old man who needs his shit wiped by a team of nurses.
You know video games don't come with a contract saying you need to dedicate your blood, sweat, piss, shit and tears towards playing it right?
I have been playing Cabela's Big Game Hunter: Pro Hunts for ps3 lately and having fun with it. I usually do a free roam hunt before bed to unwind. The sounds of nature are very realistic and there are really cool fall colors in some of the forests.
Plus, I have never actually been hunting, so I feel like I'm learning some introductory level stuff. I have a much better idea of where to shoot an animal and what angle, if you dont want to spoil the meat by hitting its stomach.
Just hop on steam and search the tag "survival", ridiculous amount of games on there, you just gotta sift through all the bull crap.
>Life is Feudal
>Haven and Hearth
>Haven and Hearth x1,000,000
>The Long Dark
>S.T.A.L.K.E.R: Call of Pripyat (with mods)
>Shelter (kind of)
>NEO Scavenger < awesome game
>Unreal World < most /out/ game of all time
>Haven and Hearth
Probably forgetting a ton, but thats a good start.
Without a doubt, Cataclysm DDA is one of my favourites.
I prefer the aski graphics to the tilesets, but its still good. I think the monsters add a great amount to the game, plus, 100% free
I bought the Vanishing of Ethan Carter yesterday after reading this thread. Gotta say that I was disappointed. The story was pretty lame in my opinion and it wasn't spooky at all despite it being labeled as a survival horror game. The story made the game depressing rather than scary/mysterious/interesting.
You are aware the developers ran away with all their early access money and abandoned it right? Leaving a buggy shell of a "game" that will never be completed. It's even been removed from Steam that's how much of a shit storm it caused. Not sure why you would recommend that.
Only bought it for it's art style to be honest. It has the best foliage I've ever seen in any game. Story is shit and the puzzles are easy as fuck. Yeah, it's a mediocre game. But buying it cheap in a sale for a screenshot walking simulator, it's worth it.
>implying anything but dwarf fortress
It might take several boring and depressing hours to get into but once you do it is the most /out/ game I can think of.
Same here. I actually don't care for the hunting in it though because it's too easy and lacks any of the real elements that are enjoyable about the real thing like reading deer sign and the landscape.
But for a relaxing before-bed "hike" it's nice. I like checking out the points of interest.
Noone has mentioned 7 Days to Die or did I just miss it?
Zombie survival but somewhat outish in the beginning at least. Lots of nature, harvesting and crafting, hunting and building. But eventuely you'll be sitting inside some castle all geared up and more important things on your mind than crafting stone axes.
this game looks pretty cool
