I've been looking for a good zombie game for me and my friend. I saw day z and war z and thought they looked fun. But, which one is better? I want a game where you're thrown in a world and need to survive. Kind of like the walking dead. Another thing is: is day z hard to instal? I've never installed a mod before.

War Z is bad. Day Z is good.

DayZ. The War Z is a scam.

Go look at the steam forums and look at all the people who just bought the game and want refunds already.

They are lying on the steam store page, alot of the features they listed are NOT in the game and they dont say ANYWHERE at the game is in early stage and not finished.

WarZ is shady all around and the actual game sucks to. DayZ mod is fun and I hope the upcomign standalone is even better (Atleast the Dayz Devs are honest and don't lie like this).

Geez, this scam is gaining momentum fast.

DayZ is better in everyway

If you're going to scam people, don't use zombies. My beloved zombies. :cry:

In their present state, they're both half-assed piles of sh*t. There's a lot of potential there, but right now it's just turds of a different color. You're better off waiting until a finished, polished product is available. If you feel you absolutely have to play one right now, then go with DayZ. There's enough of a modding community that you're more likely to stumble upon something you enjoy, despite the glitches, bugs, and broken nonsense.

Wait for a month or so and the standalone DayZ will be out. And it will be simple to install.

Nah, with the most recent patch of DayZ its pretty much as stable as can be. Zombies work well, OP weapons are gone, most of the bugs are fixed. I havent run into a single one for quite a while. The only problems left are the ones inherit of the ArmA2 engine.

I agree with all this!

One is an unfinished product sold as a full game, and the other is just an overrated mod built on a terrible ARMA 2 engine. Both are advertised as open-world zombie game, but actual gameplay is:PVP, PVP, PVP,PVP, PVP, PVP,PVP, PVP, PVP.

War Z was in development before DayZ came out. They made a lackluster product, but in no way is it a scam.

I have only played DayZ, not War Z, but my mates tell me it's **** So if I ever go back to playing either, it would be DayZ.

Last time I heard about DayZ is 4 months ago, if the graphical glitches and gear bugs have been fixed I'd definitely recommend it.

neither

#16 Posted by -Unreal- (24533 posts) -

I've played neither but I've watched both a fair amount.

Day-Z looks like an unfinished game. It is more in depth, bigger and has more variety in the game environment.

War-Z looks like an alpha with horrible graphics, terrible animations (I mean REALLY bad), terrible sound design and garbage combat. The shooting is **** awful looking.

Take your pick.

Neither wait for Day Z standalone.

Fair assessment I would say.

Hopefully the DayZ standalone brings all the promises it has made.

Well, they're both buggy and full of hackers so take your pick.

Now you're being stupid. DayZ is actually being developed by competent people. They want to make their game great. WarZ isn't. They just want your money.

I enjoy War Z and I enjoy Day Z. Day Z has way too many bugs and crappy zombies that teleport at the moment. War Z has some bugs left and they have been improving every day which I've enjoyed. Fun game that you can jump into much faster than Day Z. Day Z will take hours to get some things done. But I am really looking forward to standalone Day Z.

However the problems with these games is that they are just pvp worlds with zombie obstacles. They were a better experience at first, felt like a social experiment. But now it is just full of people trying to find and kill each other. Still fun as long as you aren't sniped from a mile away.

This seems to prove you wrong.

From what I've seen War Z is a flop, therefore Day Z.

Posting a video of a person's opinion in an attempt to refute another person's opinion on a game is just silly. Those are the flaws that Deadpool sees with the game. Don't think he can be found "wrong" just because of a video that presents a different opinion.
