The original DayZ mod was pretty fun, because it was just deathmatch without everyone having the same gear. Then they kept adding gay survival elements nobody wanted and now it's trash.


Basically shooting people is real fun in ArmA but the only missions people want to play are insanely laggy and buggy or are co-op missions. The AI in that game is insanely boring to play against, because they either never see you and just stand around in the open waiting to get shot, or they instantly kill you from two kilometers away laying down behind a bush the AI can see through but you can't.

it is weird to me the dev didn't use the Arma 3 engine which is a straight improvement in every detail

They had just started development on Arma 3 at the time and it was way buggier and shittier than Arma 2, so they made a hybrid thing which now that arma 3 came out is obviously way shittier.

I believe they should have waited. but it probably would still not be so great

Someone in Games claim that at the time they 'released' the standalone a bunch of government contracts for VBS had just dried up so the company was in ridiculously dire straits. I dunno if that's true but it would make sense.

I remember thinking dayz would have been more fun without the zombies,

There was a mission called Wasteland back in arma 2 that was absolutely way more fun because it had all the scrounging for gear and vehicles but also had objectives and no zombies. I think that Arma 3 has the same kind of thing but it doesnt feel the same because the mountainy islands don't have good hiding spots for bases. Basically what I'm saying is DayZ sucks but Arma is fun.

They are undeniably the last retreat of some of the shittiest game developers imaginable
