A FINE ARGUMENT FOR HUNTING WOLVES INTO EXCTINCTION
There are a lot of games built around the idea of survival in an unhospitable place. Often these also have zombies running around, which never fails to raise the question of why you wouldn’t try to survive anywhere else.
In most of these games, you eventually become something of a god of the wilderness, lugging around a presumably massive backpack full of crafting materials and DIY survival tools. The Long Dark says screw all that and sets out to remind you that you’d be a massive liability in any sort of survival situation.
