DayZ First Impressions

During the Steam 2012 – 2013 holiday sale I bought ARMA II: Combined Operations just to get DayZ. After spending about an hour trying to figure out the error messages with ARMA II and DayZ I finally got the game to launch.

First impressions, man oh man is this game hard. For one thing you do not start with any weapons, so you have to sneak around zombies to find supplies.

Unlike games like Left 4 Dead and Left 4 Dead 2, in DayZ the way you move may attract zombies. If you crouch and walk, the harder you are to see. If you stand up and run, this makes you easy for the zombies to see.

I found this video on youtube to give people an idea what DayZ is like.

Why I play Left 4 Dead

What makes the Left 4 Dead series so awesome? Just about everything. I have over 1,600 hours in Left 4 Dead 2, and almost 700 hours in the original Left 4 Dead.

When the original Left 4 Dead was released I put off buying it until it went on sale. The first place that had it on sale was Best Buy in Beaumont Texas. I think best Buy had Left 4 Dead on sale for something like $10 off.

Got Left 4 Dead home, installed it, steam updated the game to the newest version. From the first couple of minutes I understood why people were raving about Left 4 Dead. It is a perfect mix of atmosphere and teamwork.

In most multiplayer games people can run off and do their own thing. In Left 4 Dead and Left 4 Dead 2, one person can affect the outcome of the game.
