Dying is an essential element of these games.
We all know the sting of playing a video game only to have us slip up and make a mistake or two causing us to die right then and there. Sure, with a lot of games we have the safety of knowing we can simply load up from the last checkpoint or save point and just like that, no harm, no foul.

With that out of the way here’s 15 Video Games Where Dying Actually Means Something.
If you’re a fan of zombies and survival games, you have likely heard of DayZ.
