  1. Danganronpa is only number 3? You guys are literally trash.

  2. Alternate title
    Top 10 things you've probably watched before squid game. 😂

  3. I'm shocked 'Parasite' wasn't an honorable mention. They both deal with the same theme of class inequality and are super witty.

  4. The Platform is a 2019 Spanish film. Not a series. I googled it

  5. Alice in borderland is the best and Squid game at least both were voiced over in english u didn't have to read just watch

  6. why SAW is not here?? its base on a game also….

  7. I have seen almost all of these. I refuse to watch Dark because I heard it is confusing to keep the characters and timelines straight. I added Detention to my list.

  8. This Horror Show Shows Who We Are
    A student of mine told me about a new show called “Squid Game.” It is a South Korean “thriller series,” as they call it, which has become a pop culture phenomenon and is the no. 1 show in more than 90 countries. The show presents several hundred people who are all in great financial debt and in dire emotional states. The producers pit them against each other, even if they are very close, and make them hate each other. The winner takes millions of dollars, and the others are killed. This show wouldn’t be so horrifying if it didn’t portray our true nature. The very fact that we watch such a show enthusiastically is proof that underneath the “civilized” façade, our nature is as the show depicts.
    It works like a magnet. We love to watch the struggle between good and evil, as long as we are safe from the consequences of the battle. The thing is that in this show, there is no good; there is only evil.
    Indeed, humans are the worst being in reality. What makes us so uniquely evil is the fact that we explicitly want to harm others. We do not want to eat others because we will starve unless we do so; we want to see them suffer! We derive pleasure from others’ pain, and derive the most pleasure when we are the ones inflicting it.
    We often say that reality is like a jungle, where the strong eat the weak. However, in the jungle, the strong do not want to destroy the weak; they want to eat. Once they are full, they want to sleep and play, and not kill or hurt for fun. In the human jungle, we do not want to eat other people; we want to see them hurting! This is why the natural jungle thrives without any laws while the human jungle, which we mistakenly refer to as “civilization,” is disintegrating despite the laws that strive to limit our barbarity.
    If we had any hopes of finding goodness in human nature, “Squid Game,” and mainly its popularity, proves that we have nothing to hope for when it comes to human nature. If we can create such shows, and if they can be so popular, then we can do such horrors in real life.
    The only possible good that can come out of such a show is the realization that it is not fantasy, but an authentic depiction of who we are. Maybe if we realize this, we will be willing to do something about changing ourselves.
    The current trend is to dull our awareness of the human horror show we live in by making cannabis available and legal. Indeed, the more we learn about human nature, the more we realize that perhaps it is better to numb ourselves through life until it’s over.
    For now, we’re cheering at the sight of other people suffering, much like people used to cheer at the sight of poor men fighting against lions in ancient Rome. Only if we realize that it is not okay to be like that, our minds might open to other options. If such a diabolical program can be the no. 1 show in more than 90 countries, it means that the entire world is immersed in unhinged viciousness.
    There is a solution, but it is demanding and must encompass the entire world if it is to succeed. To change who we are, we must initiate a worldwide educational process where such programs are forbidden and pro-human-connection programs are produced and aired. Even if they are not popular, at first, we cannot allow ourselves to be exposed to the violent poison and culture of narcissism that we consume today. They may be sweet, but they are lethal.
    If people don’t want to watch shows about human connection, they can put aside their media devices and simply talk to one another. This will already be a major improvement to the current situation.
    It may not sound like fun, but what is the option? To live out the “Squid Game.” Besides, after some practice, we will discover that connection and care are far more rewarding and pleasant than destruction and cruelty, and do not carry the negative side effect that is our current culture.

  9. After watching squid game i have high standards now

  10. I knew alice in borderland would make it to the list!

  11. Controversial opinion…. Alice in the Borderland….. way better than squid game!

  12. As The Gods Will must be Number 2 or 1 lol. The first game of ATGW and Squid Game is almost the same

  13. Squid Game is a rip off of Kaiji (a good one). Also Danganronpa….Seriously???
    You might as well put Sword Art Online or Future Diary on the list..
    ..or save it for a "Top 10 anime dumbest deadly games".

  14. 10- The Platform
    9- The Kingdom
    8- Detention
    7- 3%
    6- Dead Set
    5- Sweet Home
    4- Battle Royale
    3- Danganronpa: The Animation
    2- Dark
    1- Alice in Borderland

  15. train to busani and kingdom so many nightmares

  16. the funny thing is you guys come from québec where i am

  17. I strongly recommend “My Name”
    It’s an amazing action K-drama show on Netflix.

  18. I watch Alice in borderland, Battle Royale, Hunger games and Jigsaw way before Squid Game. The first time I watch Squid game it looks similar to Netflix series Alice in Borderland and a mix of battle Royale. These movies and tv series are the best survival game format series. But Battle Royale was the only movie that released a new genre of popular culture in these movies and tv series. I love sweet home best Netflix series it’s like the Korean version of Resident Evil and I live train to Busan as well.


    There are better Asian series out there!

    (I can feel the hate already)

    1. Alice In Borderland

    2. Werewolf Game

    3. Squid Game

    4. Kaiji

    5. Sweet Home

    6. Kings Game

    7. As the Gods Will

    8. Battle Royale

    9. Extracurricular

    10. Animal World

    Just to name a few.

  20. Watched Alice in Borderland first and then Squid Game. Both are equally good. As for Dangenronpa, I think the game is far superior then it's animated form. I wish it was made into real live TV series though.

  21. circle is a great movie too. really shows how humans can be

  22. Highly recommend the platform Greta movie

  23. Guys alice in borderland and danganronpa so good

  24. Tower of God should have been included.It’s so good.

  25. To be honest, the Saw series should’ve been on this, sure it’s not no competition for characters getting money, but it is a series revolving games and puzzles that people don’t win or find a strategy to survive, it could result in death. Honestly, you should probably get the point

  26. So far I have watched Sweet Home, AiB, 3%, and the Platform and I have to say The Platform is my favorite

  27. Lol for me alice in boderland is bad af , dont undertand how people like it so much.

  28. Alice in birderland IS SO SO SO SO GOOD!!!!

  29. Glad that Alice in borderline get more recognized because it's really worth to watch. Plot more complex than the squid game. But I also appreciate squid game because it's breath a new air for us who's bored watching the same Hollywood thriller movies

  30. Alice in borderland is a big flop actually, the idea is good but the acting is very poor

  31. After watching Alice in borderland, definetly this series is better than squid game. the story, the game, the strategy, the psylogical in Alice on borderland is better

  32. 3% was great. There are some cringey moments and plotholes. I loved the characters.

    I also recommend all of us are dead. Even though it's a bit meh.

  33. I experienced the book (battle royale) before watching the movie, and seeing everything come to life was very interesting. Literally my favourite concept, as it is for many other people. Sadly only a few movies/series manage to execute it well

  34. I think we can all agree that Alice in borderland is better than squid game

  35. Only Saw Battle Royale, Hunger Games, The Platform and The Cube so far can't wait to see the rest .

  36. 10. The Platform
    9. Kingdom
    8. Detention
    7. 3%
    6. Dead Set
    5. Sweet Home
    4. Battle Royale
    3. Danganronpa: The Animation
    2. Dark
