The answer is:

"Mutants". The video game tag gave it away, It's similar to puzzles in fallout 3.

This is how I worked it out.

In Fallout there is a hacking puzzle game. Each incorrect word gives you a number, that number is equal to the number of characters in the same location as the correct password. I used the words with a score of 0 to determine which letters could not be in the correct word. Then from the remaining characters I calculated based upon the value of the words they were in how likely it was for them to appear in the final answer. enter image description here
