Played some DayZ the past couple days, and now I wonder why I spent $30 on it and somehow convinced my friend to download it too. Where is all this action people are talking about? All we could do was wander around some houses and grab some shit, and maybe go for a swim on the beach. I ended up killing my friend (in the game) and looting all his stuff. We had a heated argument over that, which I guess was pretty funny. Still, it feels so empty. Obviously it's in alpha, but hearing some of the stories likely raised my expectations to unrealistic levels.
All that said, it gave me an excuse to push my newly installed graphics card (7870), and I definitely liked what I saw. This should be a hell of a game in a year or two, but it's not worth $30 to me right now.
