The Latest Game Tearing Up Steam's Charts Looks So Typical

If the last couple of years didn't make it clear, Steam players sure love their survival games.


DayZ. Rust. The Forest. Starbound. theHunter: Primal. These are just a few of the many, many survival games that have exploded, however briefly, on Steam.
