Dayz vs warz/infestation
Who do you think is a better game. I had a chance to play both (infestation a few days ago) AND BY FAR dayz is a hell of a lot better. You opinion?

I like warz for its fighting aspects and dayz for vehicle aspects

I can't believe people are still on about this. I came here to see if there had been any improvements in the game since I last played it, seems it's still got it's haters and fanboys.

If people really feel the need to compare the two then wait until the DayZ standalone is out. At the moment people are comparing a free mod of a paid game against a paid mod of a free game.

Dayz...Why would you even ask...

I prefer Project Zomboid.

Beats both of those in my opinion for a zombie game. (And no... I'm not joking)

Even a game like Dead Frontier is also something that can be better than than those 2 if you play with friends.

Why?

Simple.

In both DayZ and Infestation : Survivor, zombies are brainless and badly scripted. While everything else might be equal, better or worse, the zombies in those 2 games are like terminators when they see a living thing. The only thing that make you run from them is if you get far far away. Hiding, using distraction or anything that should be normally a way of surviving agains them are none-existant in the 2 games.

Take the Dead Rising series as a complete opposite. In that game, zombies don't see you from a mile as you have to shove them (almost) so that they can try to grab you. If you got some of them after you, simply running 20 meters away make them stop and stay in their little pack. (Almost like some really old folks walking after you while you hold a bag of poppermans and as you get too far, they turn around grumpy and forget about you and your bag of delicious poppermans)

A real zombie game MMO or not would require to actually create a REAL new AI for the zombies. One that actually register its action based on what the zombie currently see, hear or "smell" with some setted distance AND collision within the calculation. That way, if the zombie don't hear you, don't see you and smell you, he won't run 5 blocks around just because he's set on aggro after seeing you running from 2 miles. Once he loose track of you, he will wonder around. But you won't have to run 5 km ahead of him to hide.

Ironically, there is still not a SINGLE working game that actually really simulate the zombie mind. We're stuck with a bunch of brainless zombies either set on "old folks" mode or on "Terminator" mode.

What is a zombies game with badly scripted zombies? In my opinion, a bad zombie game. Period.

Project Zomboid is an example of a simple, yet well scripted zombies. They don't run after you if you move normally far from them. They will run/walk after you if you're running close or in front of them. They will move to area where sounds are made. (Unless they spot the character, they will never run at him, but instead they will run at the SOUND position. The zombies are not set on aggro as long as the player is not clearly SPOTTED.)

Barricades, food (cooking), healing (also incurable infections), sleeping, crafting, weapons and looting is already in the game. Also talents/abilities versus Weakness/Bad habits. ( about 3 weakness/bad habits for 2 abilities/talents)

A game like Dead Frontier might not have a highly developed AI, but at least, surviving doesn't require you to run kilometers away because the zombies can see throught walls. transitions help reducing the "heat" on your back and to make you breath a bit once in a while. It's also free and doesn't require you to buy a game to run it.

i've got about 35 hours or so in each game. personally, i like WarZ better, but there are things i like about DayZ better. Mostly, the vehicles in DayZ. There is ALOT of walking around, but you can find vehicles in DayZ. But, the zombies look much better in WarZ. The ones in DayZ look like hunched over monkeys scooting along the ground at you. Also, the screenshots of the California map look awesome....I can't wait for that.

I vote for Day Z because the better side of this game is the zombies, they have better sound effects, they don't glitch all the time, and when they die its ragdoll, but everything else goes to DayZ, if WarZ wants to stay in the game, update and make it better, otherwise the new DayZ official game that is comming out soon will blow this game out of the water and leave it basping for air.

War Z (infestation) wins for me because i hate Day Z... and because that one is just a mod and not actually a GAME. As for the stand-alone, we'll see, but the devs there are light years ahead of Hammerpoint.

No! Not as any game. Some games can't be saved. They are bad and we can't find something to enjoy them.

But if the warz developpers don't make an effort. We will abandon this game soon.
