Do you play DayZ now or plan to play it later?

My girlfriend got it for me as an early Christmas gift. If you follow their changelog on wiki, they pretty much change things up daily.

It's an ongoing process and while it is alpha, there's definitive progress.

That being said, I haven't sunk much time into simply for not having any / being in the mood. There's a decent amount of bugs but there's no reason you can't purchase it now and play when you want. It's only going to get more expensive as it advances through the stages of development.

Isn't it a zombie game? I have this thing where I do not play zombie games because zombie games are stupid.

They should rename the game to running simulator 2014 because that's all I ever see people do when I watch live streams, if they ever do encounter another person they either kill them or get killed and loose all the gear they spent hours collecting.

Not my cup of tea.

Maybe you should have a new thing where you stop sharing opinions.

If you want some pew pew die, watch COD. DayZ isn't the best game watched unless the streamer is interesting. Playing the game is an entirely different experience.

no, when there is a decent community, i might give it a try.


If the people playing now are any indication, that would be . . never.


Let me guess, they're playing it wrong because they shoot you on sight, right?

This is the response you're probably looking for.

Its a great experience as long as you can accept that you are playing an alpha.

Been watching it since the mod got popular. Definitely want to play it eventually.

In the mean time, I bought Arma 3 during the Winter Sale thinking that it would be a safer purchase. Already put almost 60 hours into it. There's also the Breaking Point mod which is somewhat like DayZ. The main thing keeping me from buying it is a budget and my Internet connection, so I figured while I wait the standalone will improve anyway.
