Will Day Z actually be good when it finally comes out?

Been watching Day Z for years now, since it's been in beta/alpha forever. Everyone knows about it, the concept is interesting, there's been books and stories, bla bla bla.

A lot of people call the game Deathmatch Z now, which sounds like a big waste of time. You spend a lot of time getting things and then boom, you die.

I've played some Mine Z though which is about the same, except without guns (bows) and in Minecraft. The zombies are just as buggy and awful too! I assume Minecraft has a younger playerbase as the names are generally awful and in lowercase, so basically there is no cooperation whatsoever and it's a deathmatch that takes forever to gear up on.

It's pretty fun with people you know, but weh.




But yeah, random junk aside. Topic title, preferably from people playing the alpha/beta/whatever it's on now.

Or anything about any Day Z inspired games, like that weird one where you can break walls and place mines and the zombies suck ass during the day. That one's probably still in alpha too. Boo.

An interesting concept, but flawed because humans are always going to s*** where they eat.

I was thinking about this. I think it won't be that fun because it is being developed from feedback from a hardcore fan base. The game should be more casual friendly- the controls are a little too clunky

i'd like to see one of these things actually become a finished product.

PC hardware doesn't need to match console hardware in price when PC gamers save literal thousands from the software they buy.

Isn't the game still in alpha? Development seems painfully slow for a game based on a 2 year old mod.

How is it not even in beta testing yet? This is getting ridiculous and I can't believe people still support the idea.

I feel like by the time DayZ or one of these other survival sandboxes like Rust or 7 Days to Die is actually finished and released, the hype surrounding the genre will have seriously died down.

For DayZ to any good they need to ditch the engine they're on and get something else. It just doesn't work on the Arma 2 engine. Might as well fix it and start anew then keep trying to pour perfume on the steamy pile that is Dayz.

Bohemia has grossed over 60 million in sales for Arma 3 alone, so they def have the resources to make the game great.

Bohemia's downfall will always be their poorly running, crap FPS engine.
