Okay so taco plan to grab her pc(long story) to try out "the long dark". I've been reading around a little bit about survivalism nd this game(simulator?)

Since this game is tightly knit around survival in harsh environments, do you think this might be able to give taco the edge in case all goes very bad? I mean with talks of usa separating I to red/green states nd attack on russia?

How realistic does this game portray sur rival? Is it just for fun type game or more of a simulator where skills gained here might help in the wilderness?(maybe?)

Plz chime in if you tried the game nd especially if you have comparisons for real life.

Thank you.

Ps- this is what taco is been reading nd its mixed opnions(facts?)

Well, I can't speak for the game but the guy in the pic had better luck than I had hunting.

So have you started eyeballing squirrels in real life as the food they are yet?

You want to see real survival watch shows like The Last Alaskans and Life Below Zero. There are a few others.
