Are we fed up with these survival games?

    Survival games are not affecting your enjoyment of any MMO's. You think those dev's would have made an MMO instead of their online survival game? Probably not. I don't like "clicker" games but I am not "fed up" with them. I am fed up with them showing up too much in the app/play store though! lol. I wish they would just put them all into a clicker category.

    fed up with? more a case of zero interest in, they are boring.

    Content wise - the vast majority of them are shallow and unfinished.

    Save for a few that are very different and heavy on sandbox elements (Minecraft, Terraria, 7DTD) - majority have a huge lack of PvE options and solely rely on PvP for longevity.

    I found many to be fun and enjoyable since I'm burned on MMO's for now. I've been playing Conan Exiles for couple weeks now. What's not to love about Naked Busty Cannibalistic Bodacious Barbarian Babes carving an existence in a hostile area? You should see my fortress with all female thralls and eating males at leisure. Yog is very pleased! ;)

    well i have tried a few and while i have had some fun with the crafting in some of them the genre is just not for me.

    Any time I see any combination of "Open World" "Early Access" "Survival" as tags for a game I immediately close whatever tab I was browsing.

    Nope... Considering I've only played two which I'd add are rather different mechanics wise (LIF, Conan) I've found a lot to like in both. The only similarities are essentially the no man's land aspect and community building aspects of both. LIF is a slower paced game with more emphasis on realism, "to move a log you have to move the actual log"  Conan is much more streamlined and actiony in comparison. Much better suited for straight warfare. 

    So no not fed up, I welcome more that pique my interest. Citadel may be that next pick actually. Looks promising and it's reviewing well.

    At the moment survival games are what MMOs used and were supposed to be - minus massive number of players.

    Yet, i find that having 50-100 players makes for much stronger community.

    That being said, survival games are rough around the edges mostly. And none of them is out of EA even...
    best post of the day. although the more high profile ones are pretty solid and not rough but that is a minor point

    and that is exactly what I go out of my way to find.

    In fact when on Steam if I want to look for a game the first thing I do is go directly to Early Access.

    I dont know why it bothers people. If you dont like the genre then why are people reading up on these type of games they dont like. It would be like saying i dont like FPSs and yet im going on the internet and reading up on new call of duty games coming out. There is no point, so i dont do it.

    IMHO Survival games just need to be taken to the next level. Love the premise, they are just too small at the moment.

    They need a much more massive world with interesting places to visit, baddies to kill and a few thousand people per server to share it all with.

    In other words they need to go full on MMORPG

    I would like some examples of which games you are thinking are too small. Reason I say that is because some of the top titles I play are friggin massive

    Big enough to accommodate thousands of people, hundreds of kingdoms concurrently. Large enough to get yourself lost.

    Not so much fed up as tired of the obvious cash grabs. I remember back in the day that the saying "one bad apple can ruin the bunch." Now-a-days it feels like most people search through the bunch of bad apples to try and find the little good ones that may remain. The problem with that is though, the outside may look good but it doesn't mean that the core isn't rotten.

    well you can absolutely do that last part but yeah not so much thousands of people and hundreds of kingdoms 


    Just as a point of reference most of the games I play have more land mass and more to do then Skyrim

    can you give an example of a specific game? I ask because 'survial early access titles' is kinda my thing. I play them often and a lot of them and I havent experienced what your talking about.

    I'm not keen on them, but not fed up either. It is no different from any other time a hot genre that isn't for me swamps the market. A lot of stuff I don't care about will get a lot of attention, and then the dust will settle and everything will go back to normal. This too shall pass.

    ok...your avatar you have right now is of High Fantasy. Would you consider High Fantasy over done genre? that maybe more than 10 years is plenty?

    my point being the 'survial genre' has been around 'at large' for about 3 years. all other genres have been around for decades

    You mean like MMORPG has passed?

    Definitely into the survival games. Love the sandbox, dino's, fantasy, zombies and building, too.  I just like the do-what-I-want, causal nature to them.

    They must be popular. They keep making more.  But, everyone has certain likes and that's OKAY, too.
