If you're using Steam, you probably have the best collection of survival games at your fingertips in all of gaming. There are a plethora of amazing PC survival games on Steam, so let's rank the absolute best to determine which titles deserve to be called "must-play." There are a couple of usual suspects that are talked about when Steam survival games are brought up, but there are plenty of lesser talked about titles on this list as well.

Although there aren't many shooters on this list, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is a game that must be included when talking about survival games on Steam. If you weren't playing PUBG in 2017, what were you even doing? Other super popular Steam survival games include Don't Starve, Terraria, and Rust, which are more traditional "survival" games than PUBG is.
