Time is a problem with me too. The nice thing about Scum is, when I start a new character, I can set the stats I want to start with (proper strength, intelligence, survival, etc), and within a few minutes of loading in, i can be lethal with the crafted weapons i can make. I also like that the devs have an endgame in mind, so that the player can work to get off the island. It's not implemented yet, but these guys have been on the ball so far.
