My #7 game this year is the first time that I really enjoyed an open world survival game, probably due to the game downplaying that whole survival thing.
Subnautica has been a long time coming. The survival game has been on early access since 2015 and has been a fixture of the early access scene since. With the game finally out, we have a different kind of survival game, and comes close to being one of my favorites of the genre.
The survival genre has certainly embraced just about all possible survival scenarios. For today’s game, Subnautica is the first game to take us to the oceans with surviving on an alien world without any land. While the depth isn’t quite there yet, there is enough going on to make this worth at least taking a dip.
