Frostfall & DayZ

When it comes to gaming, my preferences seem to lie in the RPG Genre with Strategy and Simulators coming in second. It is not often that I dabble in First Person shooters. While I have some fond memories of the multiplayer mods that came out of Half Life, I did not find myself curious about the features of Battlefield 4.

The features of DayZ, on the other hand are interesting. While it doesn’t really have any RPG elements, it does seem to have unusual features and when the mod came out, it was noticed for being different… and difficult…

My brother has been trying to get me to play DayZ for a little while and I did try the mod a while back. I found it to be a bit “too real” to be really enjoyable. From the near explosion of similarly themed games recently, it does seem like a popular genre though…

The new hunting and weather mechanics that they are talking about – particularly the ones being compared to Frostfall in Skyrim is particularly interesting. I thoroughly enjoyed playing through hardcore mode in Fallout: NV and the Frostfall and the more complex needs of Skyrim.

The permadeath part of the game is unattractive for me though – but maybe one day this will change..
