This War of Mine
- Super realistic survival game

The biggest reason this game have a spot in this list is the surprising close to reality perspective it presents. It shows how it feels to be a survivor when you are a civilian who isn’t trained for such circumstances and have to make many life & death decisions. Along with that the game includes innocent children who had survived the doomsday. Now they need to play, laugh and care because no matter what the circumstances are, kids are kids.
You will see the survival situation from a civilian point of view where survival isn’t always about killing the enemy. Because it is easier to shoot a monstrous creature with big fancy gun instead of making hard decisions by your conscience and crafting toys for the kids stuck in such a world with you.
