Case in point . . . 2:28-3:16 this sums up whole DayZ pretty well in less than a minute...


Say what you will about the old Play By Email tradition, but still best player versus player game mode evah.

Nero is going to be moaning that this thread is in the wrong forum. I can imagine his face when he sees it...

Nah, last time I actually PLAYED a PVP game was probably . . . well at least a year ago with PUBG, but "griefing" is the "only" form of gameplay in that one! :P

No seriously, PVP games objectively SUCK. There is ONE game design and it sucks. PuBG is the epitome of this:

use a standard engine with lots of purchaseable assets, toss together some programmers who barely know the engine in question, much less how game engines work in general, duct tape together a networked game with zero concept of "game as art" and strictly "game as circle jerk" basis. Ignore optimization or enhancing gameplay mechanics for a design that might stand the test of time, focus on micro-transaction BS, and fleece the viewing public of as much small change as quickly as possible before the craze dies down and the game goes extinct. Its the same model used in the porn industry.
