DayZ

This is the most nerve-wracking game I've ever played.


Yes, I've been out for a while. I have to admit that it was because of DayZ, a mod for the military simulation ARMA 2. DayZ is a hyper-realistic zombie apocalypse simulation. And I mean hyper-realistic. This isn't Left 4 Dead or Dead Island, or even Lollipop Chainsaw. This game focuses on survival. not zombie-killing. You have hunger, thirst, and sickness levels in the game, as well as blood, which determines how healthy you are. You play on online servers with other players, but you are unlikely to run into them on a consistent basis; the map is 135 square miles large. To survive, you must find weapons, food, and water, while fending off both zombies and players. Truth is, the real enemy here isn't the zombies. It's the other players. People do not trust each other in this game, and as such, tend to murder each other and loot their stuff. That's the real problem.

That's the best description I can give DayZ, but you'd be better off looking at the DayZ Official Website.
I'm always looking for people to play with that won't murder me when I turn away. If you want to play with me sometime, add me on Steam (CatalystKing23). I don't kill people I know, only the ones who I deem to be a threat (basically, any stranger with a gun). Such is life in DayZ. Now I must go. I'm currently loaded down with 2 weapons and no ammo - what could go wrong?
