TOP-25 best post-apocalyptic games – rating of 2021

Agree, the current political situation does not inspire much confidence. Sometimes there is a feeling that the mighty of this world are about to go all out, unleashing another major conflict, but this time with the use of, say, nuclear or even chemical weapons. And also this virus … But let’s not talk about the bad – let’s leave it to video games!

On the net you can find a huge number of video games dedicated to the post-apocalyptic theme. But here’s the problem: most are second-rate handicrafts that aren’t worth spending even five minutes of your precious time on. Some players will swear in front of you that “the same-game” is the best game not only in the post-apocalyptic genre, but also the best game in principle. Nevertheless, it is worth taking a good look – sheer nonsense.

What to do? Where can you find first-class games in such a popular genre today? You are terribly lucky! In today’s article, we’ll take you through the 25 best post-apocalyptic games for PC, PS4, Xbox One, and more. Moreover, our list will include not only single story games, but also multiplayer projects.
