33 Best Post-Apocalyptic Games of All Times

33 Best Post-Apocalyptic Games of All Times

Many post-apocalyptic games are not only about finding the basic necessities of life, but also about being able to defend oneself against countless bad guys who want nothing more than to take all their hard-earned possessions with them… and sometimes just their lives.

It is sometimes difficult to find very good post-apocalyptic games in an endless sea of crumbs that seem to cloud a digital distribution platform, but this list should at least give some wonderful examples of this often overwhelming genre.

What is the post-apocalyptic game?

To really understand what makes the post-apocalyptic game great, it’s probably important to discuss what makes the post-apocalyptic game great. For me , there are two important parts:

  • Is the game taking place in our world or in the alternate reality of our world?
  • Was there an apocalyptic event that destroyed society as we know it, leaving behind only chaos entropy?

Don’t make it harder, but I will, because that’s who I am. I will split this list into post-apocalyptic role-playing games, FPS role-playing games, survival and strategy games, because despite the general context, all these games are very different in their playing style.

I’ve also considered adding a ranking system to this list, but many of these games are so different from each other that there are actually no criteria to cover them all. In that sense, you just need to know that these are the best post-apocalyptic games.

Best post-apocalyptic role-playing games from top to bottom

Not so long ago, post-apocalyptic role-playing games were omnipresent at a wonderful time. Many of my favorite childhood memories were adventures through empty low-resolution pixelated or isometric landscapes, full of people and monsters who wanted my head … …or other body parts. Even though this style of playing has disappeared in recent years, this does not mean that we no longer have excellent examples that can be drawn from the past and the present.

Age of Decadence is primarily a turn-based role-playing game that exists in an alternative reality freely based on the Roman Empire.

The world of the age of decadence resembles the earth, but has experienced a catastrophic social breakdown. This game is very legendary and offers you many quests. Get ready to bring your reading glasses.

There are different backgrounds to your character, and this particular choice will prove to be one of the most important ones you will make. Factions will respond differently to you depending on where you come from, and you can either accept the chosen faction or reject them all and decide your own fate.

Just like in the airplane landscape: Torture, talking is almost always better than violence if you can help.

A.T.O.M RPG is one of the last post-apocalyptic games included in thislist. Although I admit I didn’t win this game, the world of ATOM has a lot in common with Wasteland and Fallout.

Once again, the Earth survived a catastrophic war and left only the desert behind, but unlike Fallout and Wasteland, this time you’re not going to explore the American continent.

Their character is pushed into the heart of Soviet Russia in an alternative future in which the Cold War does not end so well. You are a survivor whose task is to discover the world and fight a great evil.

The atom does not differ much from the formula given by Fallout or Wasteland, but that is not bad. One of the best post-apocalyptic games on themarket, and I can only highly recommend it.

Perhaps the most cultic post-apocalyptic role-playing game of all time is the original Fallout.

Released in 1997, this game is in the style of a heavy story and revolves around your hero coming out of the vault in the nuclear desert of the former United States.

Throughout the journey you will learn that the world as we know it ends on the 23rd day of the journey. The month of October 2077 ended quite suddenly.

You’ll have to travel to the desert to meet rival groups, evil monsters and hardened bandits in search of the water flea for your safe.

Fallout 2 follows in the footsteps of its predecessor and puts you back in the role of a player figure.

This time you are not a crypto inhabitant, but a descendant of the first crypto inhabitant. You are a favorite (no sophistry) and the challenge is to find G.E.C.K. (the whole of the Garden of Eden).

Fallaut 2 will be characterized by a familiar environment, the post-nuclear United States, as well as many such monsters or factions.

As in Fallout’s first game, you’ll have an extensive list of stats, skills and perks to choose from to adapt your character to your playing style, and as in Fallout’s first game, there are usually different ways to achieve your goal.

Tactics of the loser: Brotherhood of Steel, source of the illustration: Micro Forte

I didn’t think long before taking this game off the list, because it almost scratched the role-playing game on its way to the new favorite title, Tactical Roleplay, but it was still pretty good.

Unlike its predecessors, fallout 1 and 2, FOT: BOS forces you to play the role of the Steel Brotherhood unit.

It also significantly reduces interaction with NPC characters and focuses more on missions than exploring the world.

But as in other Fallout games, you’re dealing with a desert of cursed nightmares, consisting of villains and monsters.

You are still in control of the main character, but the game is much more focused on team battles… Make sure the value of your charisma is high enough (about 8), believe me.

Technically, Project Zomboid hasn’t come out yet, but after what I played, it turned out to be a great game.

They survived the zombie apocalypse in Knox County, USA. Your goal is to survive and thrive in a world where many undead people want to eat your face.

You start the game with a selection of skills and statistics that you think will give the best chance of survival in the truly inhospitable world of. Don’t think for a second that your first or even your ninth character will succeed.

Zombies are everywhere, and they’re more than happy to dig you up. If you get bitten and infected, it’s a death sentence, and the best thing your friends can do for you is get you out like Old Yeller.

Sunny Sea is on my personal card as one of the best role-playing games of all time. It is even included in our best computer role-playing games.

It’s the sequel to the browser game Fallen London, and although some might argue that it’s not really post-apocalyptic, because the surface world still exists, and only London and probably a large part of the British people have fallen into the depths, for me the capital of a nation collapsing under the surface of a planet full of nameless horrors and ancient evils in a forested world, is quite post-apocalyptic.

You take on the role of Captain Sea, whose task it is to choose your life’s purpose and make it come true. There are many ambitions you can pursue, but it soon becomes clear that your main motivation is just one of the countless stories you will discover if you go into depth.

In fact, if you go straight to your main story, you’ll probably miss 98% of thegame. Explore the distance, my friends, but beware of nightmares in the depths.

The sky without the sun is a direct extension of the sea without the sun and exists in the same world. In Sunless Sea you will probably come across the old gates known as Avid Horizon.

It seems that our good Queen Victoria, in her wisdom, has decided to open that villain and take all of London and its people to heaven.

You take the role of captain again with your own ambitions and explore nameless horrors beneath the stars.

You’ll discover entire suns destroyed by the power of the queen’s weapons, and you’ll plunge into secrets that would satisfy any student of Lovecraft Horror.

Fly carefully, friends, there’s more to the darkness than scavengers out there, you can be sure of that.

Technically, the Time Tower does not meet my own requirements for a post-apocalyptic game, since it is neither on earth nor in an alternative world based on ours.

However, this is one of the best role-playing games I have ever played in. The story is profoundly fascinating, and the world in which it unfolds suffers both from the consequences of the past apocalypse and from the consequences of another apocalypse looming on the horizon.

You slip into the role of a young gentleman who returns to a strange tower he discovered as a child.

After you fall to the Crystal Throne, send two of your brave comrades with whom you have a telepathic connection and descend to the depths of the Tower to reveal its secrets and reveal the mysteries of destiny that burden your entire world. I can no longer recommend this game

The original Wasteland was incredibly impressive for its time. While you were in the post-apocalyptic United States, you took on the role of a group of Desert Rangers exploring the last bastions of mankind.

Most of your searches are top to bottom, while events are processed in a window, usually with a pixel-like representation of the event and the actions you can take.

But don’t let the old program stop you. The original wasteland is still a real adventure today.

The history is well written, there are many legends to read and there are many ways to solve the problems of the game. This is a real gem in the crown of the RPGs of the late 80s.

Wasteland 2 was funded by Kickstarter in 2012 and reached its funding target in 43 hours. Developed by inXile Entertainment, some Obsidian Entertainment veterans joined the project shortly after its launch by Kickstarted. Like its predecessor, the Wasteland is located in the post-apocalyptic United States and takes over the role of the Desert Ranger.

Using the Unity engine, Wasteland 2 has a graphic style similar to Pillars of Eternity, a top-down, isometric role-playing game based on teamwork. Almost the entire game is played from this point of view, with the exception of the world map.

Some kind of spoiler!

They reconnoitre the last outposts of humanity and have to make a difficult decision about who lives and who dies. This is not a game for people who want everyone to flourish in peace. This just isn’t the reality we can hope for.

The Dying Light exists in a world where the zombie apocalypse has destroyed society as we know it.

You play Kyle Crane, who has the dubious duty to enter the quarantine zone to retrieve a file stolen by a corrupt politician (as if he were a different kind of politician).

They find other survivors in the fallen city of Harran (not in the real place) and have to decide if they want to help them or fulfill their mission.

The Dying Light is relatively unique because the campaign can be conducted together and the fight is mainly focused on close combat.

It should also be noted that the zombies in the Dying Light become much more dangerous and aggressive at night, which is a decent mechanism.

You will travel again to the devastated desert of the United States, where another disaster occurred after the nuclear disaster, and you will join or fight against different groups in the region.

Although your goal is to find your father, as in all Bethesda games, you’ll soon forget all about him by undertaking dozens of camp and faction quests instead.

Case: New Vegas was founded by Obsidian Entertainment. It’s widely acclaimed as one of the best Fallout games ever made, which I share.

Obsidian is known for its ability to tell stories and implement a variety of solutions to most gambling problems.

It should be noted that this game was heavily damaged at launch, although most of them have been repaired.

On the nose and the beard: NV, you don’t take the role of resident of the warehouse, but you are the messenger. As a courier you are responsible for delivering a package in New Vegas.

Unfortunately, it’s bad for you, and in the end, you got shot in the head. Somehow you survive and begin to rage over the Mojave Desert to find those responsible.

The Shadow of Chernobyl is the first part of a trilogy of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. games released in 2007, 2008 and 2009.

In this universe, people are condemned to repeat the mistakes of the past if they decide to colonize the Chernobyl region.

There is another fusion, and the area (the so-called zone) is in trouble again. This game is mainly played outdoors and has really great graphics for the time.

You slip into the role of an amnesia investigator named Marker, and you have a simple mission: Kill Strelok. You will go on many missions to try to know your destination as well as your memory.

But it’s never as easy as it looks on paper, you’ll meet deadly mutants and other groups if you desperately try to find out who you really are.

Just like the first S.T.A.L.K.E.Ryou will explore the area. But Clear Skies is not, as one would expect, an extension of the shadow of Chernobyl, but a prequel. This game has added Faction Wars, which allows you to help a particular faction of your choice by unlocking the best items.

As in the first game, you will explore the anomalies and can choose from many types of weapons and armour to suit your style of play.

In Clear Sky you play the role of the scar, which has a rare ability to survive the abnormal explosions that manifest themselves in the form of emissions.

You’re going with us to find out the reasons for these failures. Along the way you’ll find other groups, factions, tracker cities and regular role-plays.

Your journey will take you to the heart of Chernobyl for an impressive end.

Unlike the first two games S.T.A.L.K.E.R , the conversation Pripyat will not take place near Chernobyl, but near the city of Pripyat (see picture).

This game is generally considered more tactical than its predecessors and requires careful management of medical equipment and supplies to prevent it from breaking.

It also has very limited savings, which means that you have to save on both your goods and your money.

In Call of Pripyat you play the role of Major Alexander Degtyarev, who has to investigate the death of five helicopters during a failed reconnaissance attempt in preparation for a Ukrainian government invasion.

Your goal is to find out what happened to the helicopters and their crews and try to find out what is happening in the area. Good luck!

No one can deny that the first division had some problems throughout his life, but the context of the match was pretty solid.

The game revolves around a paramilitary group called Division, who are desperately trying to unite and secure a world destroyed by the epidemic. The world of division is in ruins, and this game is about Manhattan.

The league offers players PVE and PVP quests and objectives to develop their characters, but the last game was mainly about PVP battles.

This has proven to be extremely problematic because a large part of the game data is processed on the customer side, making it incredibly easy to hack or exploit.

I recommend playing the first division for the sake of history and then move on to the second division, which I hope will correct this incredibly flagrant error in the developer’s judgment.

Division 2 is clearly a continuation of the first division. This time the story takes place in the ruins of Washington and focuses on the White House.

The green poison has almost destroyed society, and you, as a Divisional agent, must try to restore hope to the people of the District of Columbia.

As in the first game, Division 2 offers a mix of EPP and PVP sessions, with the latter limited to the dark areas.

You will also encounter four semi-unique factions: Hyenas, real sons, outcasts and black tusks.

Each of these hostile countries has its own specialization and fighting style, but in most cases you cut off a lot of the Mafia from the ball sponge.

The Last of Us, one of the few games on the Playstation Exclusive list, is perhaps a striking example of the amazing narrative and exciting gameplay.

Like all other games such as Zombie or Monster Lightning, The Last of Us follows the familiar trail of the mutated fungus that spreads across the earth and destroys society.

You’re playing the part of the smuggler Joel. You come into contact with a rebel militia known as Fireflies and have the task of escorting a teenager (Ellie) out of the quarantine zone.

You follow this incredible couple through painful adventures and terrible enemies, only to realize that your goal is contrary to your own morals. It’s a great story that everyone should play at least once.

The five original Far-Cry games weren’t really post-apocalyptic, but with New Dawn, the series seems to have decided to weigh the chaos of a devastated society.

To play FC, you didn’t have to play the previous Far Cry games: ND, but it was installed about 20 years after the Far Cry 5 story. All the trophies expected in the game, nuclear war, warring factions, lots of weapons and chaos.

You have to work your way through strangers and soldiers and navigate a research center that is on the verge of collapse. After all, you can’t even go home in a comfortable bed. It’s sad.

This four-seater zombie shooter is probably one of the best examples of its kind so far.

You take on the role of one of the four survivors who are desperately trying to find their way to safety. The campaign phases generally include 5 actions, where the last action leads to the survival (or death) of the players.

In all these activities you will encounter hordes of zombies, but also different kinds of specially infected people, each with their own skills, strengths and weaknesses.

As in most strategy games, they are billions, you build cities, gather armies and resources. There are countless hordes of undead armed against you. Plus, the Victorian steampunk aesthetic is beautiful.

I admit I didn’t play as much frost punk as I wanted. This survival game on the line between difficult challenges and a delightful description of your decision was wrong.

It’s a game in which evil almost always wins over good, and the world itself is your enemy.

You take on the role of the mayor of the city, who gathers around a generator to provide your citizens with electricity and heat. You need to manage resources, people and laws to make the most of your limited resources.

You can improve your technology to make your city more efficient and find more resources, but you may have to do so on the basis of child labour or a 24-hour work day.

Finding that balance is the difference between a dead leader and a great leader.

Torture: The numbered tides are the long-awaited spiritual successor to the flat landscape: Torture. Although Numenera has never been able to surpass her older brother, she managed to convey exactly what made Planscape a modern classic – fascinating dialogues, interesting characters and a strange, surreal, post-apocalyptic world. For these reasons, we considered it a place worthy of our best fantastic role-playing games.

The tide of the tides will come in the distant future, when mankind, after the rise and fall of many civilizations, will fall back into a medieval state. People live in small, simple settlements without technology, surrounded by relics from the past called Numbers.

These so-called relics can vary from atomic generators to everyday objects such as toasters and microwaves. No matter how complex they are, they are beyond the comprehension of most people who think they are magical. This is not your usual post-apocalyptic world where mutants live.

It’s funny that one of the creators of Numener was Brian Mitsoda, who you might know as a leading vampire writer: Masquerade – The Bloody Lines and their imminent continuation.

The game is a survival simulator based on controlling the character’s body temperature, calorie intake, fatigue and thirst/hunger.

The story of ELEX takes place on Magalan, a futuristic planet on earth, which was restored to an almost medieval state after the impact of the comet. Those who survived this catastrophe are left to their own devices and survive the seemingly eternal war between the four main factions.

Central to their conflict is an element called ELEX, a limited and valuable resource that can be used to equip machines with magical powers. Each faction has its own opinion on how or even whether ELEX should be used, and it is up to the actor to decide which faction should be supported.

For the sake of clarity, it must be said that ELEX is far from being the perfect game. ELEX suffers from the usual Piranha Bytes warnings and has been repeatedly criticized for its insensitivity to controls, its disappointing fighting mechanism and its flat main character.

But what ELEX lacks in most things is a fascinating legend and a fascinating post-apocalyptic world where futuristic and medieval places mingle. And with the prospect of a sequel, it is clear that Piranha Bytes has enough confidence in its intellectual property to give it another chance, despite a warm welcome from critics.

This concludes our list of some of the greatest post-apocalyptic games of all time. If there are games that are not on this list, feel free to comment on them below and they can be added or put on a new list of post-apocalyptic games that we missed! Thank you for reading it.
