So lately, survivor and building games have been taking over my life. My 10-year-old step-daughter recently had her dad install Minecraft on the PS4. Now, my kids from a previous marriage have all played Minecraft for as long as I could remember and I swear I wouldn't play it. Then, my 6-year-old daughter comes to visit for the summer and discovers Minecraft on the PS4. She had me help her build the castle from Frozen II. I have been hooked ever since.

I am also really into 7 Days to Die which is a zombie survivor building game. In both games I prefer to build then play survivor mode. Every once in a while I do the building while in survival mode. How do you guys feel about survival/building combo games and what are some of your favorites?

I liked survival games in the beginning like Minecraft. However, the genre now seems to be focused on Highlander influenced survival games which seems a little more similar to the Battle Royale genre to me. I'm not a huge fan of these games.

I really, really don't understand the Minecraft hype lol. It's just never grew on me whenever I've tried it out but hey, that's life. Now survivor games like Left 4 Dead and that, they are my jam. I love having to survive the oncoming hoard of zombies but recently I've gotten into speedrunning it and trying to complete the levels in some madly fast time. I'm getting better, slowly! Seems like I need to try out the 7 days to die game you're mentioning though Izzy, sounds fun!

Dude, it's super addictive. Like, crazy addictive. You can also load a server or create one rather that has no zombies or bloodmoons until you are ready for them to spawn if you just wanna focus on gathering and building prior to fighting off the hordes.

What about Clock Tower or Haunting Ground? You're very limited to what you can do in those games. They're not like other survival horror games where you typically shoot everything in your path, because you feel more vulnerable to a nasty death when your only real options are to run and hide.
