You're a fan of Zombie U right? Well DayZ basically shares the same concept, but in an open world, that involves real humans. And to survive you need to find a group of trustworthy people that won't back-stab you. Or something like that...

ahh, all i saw was 3 human players, one messing with the other 2... no zombies, no action, no anything. is there an eventual end goal, like zombiU, or missions? or is it just "i run around and survive, lol."

Instead of being a poopy pants why don't you go check out the game on YouTube, or look at reviews on google.
Ever hear the saying "don't judge a book by it's cover"? I'm sure you have. Well, this game is dubbed the best zombie game ever made.
I haven't personally played it, but I've heard real good things about it, and I owe that to spending a few minutes looking into it, not looking at one video and being like "well this sucks".

Ah DayZ, I really dislike it. I mean the mod is great and all, but I hate the outcome of it messing up all the Arma 2:OA Server List for those who enjoy playing without DayZ. It's literally filled with DayZ now with 2000 servers. Also WarZ trying to steal DayZ's glory by stealing most of it's customers including me(I got a refund) even though I just wanted to try out all though I know lots of people who told me not to try it at all. It is a very unfinished game with liars as developers.

It is fun, it's just that it clogs up the serverlist which makes it hard for others to play the actual game and not the mod.

I bought Arma II and the expansion just to find out my computer is a piece of crap and I can't run it. Or at least, I can run it VERY VERY slowly.

It's pretty fun. I over played it so it became boring for me. Huge issue is Russian hackers in this game. My friend had his computer effed by one of them hacking one of the public servers. They managed to take his CD key and resell it online....!

Probably like 6-8 years old. Not 100% sure but around that.

At this point, I can barely run videos. Everything is choppy on even Youtube.
My old video card basically screwed up around a year ago, so I bought the oldest one I could get from a local PC store. My video card is an ATI Radeon HD 3600 series but it doesn't seem to run well with my computer.

Now they've set it so there are private hives, which are a little more secure than the public hives.

The one hive I play on has a pretty good anti-hack system and have had little-to-no trouble with hackers ruining it.
