In this week’s Pokket Says, we weigh in on DayZ, the zombie survival that’s taken the FPS genre by storm over the past couple of months.
I’ve been having an absolute blast in DayZ. For those that don’t know, DayZ is a mod for Arma II, a tactical shooter for PC. I have been playing this game for about a week and a half and have found that it holds this addictive element to it that many other games I’ve played in the past lack. Maybe it is the promise of losing everything if you die, maybe it is the environment, maybe it is the uncertainty of friends versus foes in the game that gives you a rush when coming into contact with other players, maybe it is the fact it takes place during the zombie apocalypse, or maybe it is a combination of all these, plus more.
