Are you sure? It’s super nerdy….
Still interested? Ok, so DayZ. DayZ has become my newest addiction. The game is incredibly. Let me know if you play it and hit me up and I’ll add you on steam. Also, as a total sociological experiment, it merits research. Its exciting for the medium because for the most part, videogames have tried to touch only on core emotions. Happy, Sad, Jealous, Angry, Regret, etc. Look at games like The Last of US or Braid for examples. What is exciting about DayZ is that the emotions you feel are vastly more complex. It still boils down to things like fear or anger, but the social interactions are what interject the complexity. I’ve seen kind people, cold people, and even jealous people. There are many things that DayZ does with social interactions that no other game could ever touch. Are you a fan of The Walking Dead? The highs and lows, examples of humanity at its best and at its worst. You get to interact with it all in this game. Also this game is in alpha, meaning its broken, laggy, unoptimized, etc. Still, there is something incredibly special here.
