Minecraft has earned its spot on many lists of games worth buying, but it’s no more at home than on a list of survival games. This famous, blocky crafting and exploration game gives players many choices of how to play. But in the classic Minecraft experience, you build a house out of the various blocks that make up the world to keep yourself safe from zombies and creepers that come at night.
After gathering specific resources, you can make stronger mining tools, weapons and armor to dig deeper and faster, and survive longer during a fight. There’s very little to guide you through the survival experience of Minecraft outside of your own desires to make a prettier and bigger living space. There is, however, the goal of reaching a realm called The End and slaying the Ender Dragon, but this is as close to a structured experience as Minecraft provides players.Available on: PC, Mac, PS4, PS3, PS Vita, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Wii U, Switch, New 3DS, iOS, Android
