This Psycho Will Keep Me From Ever Returning To ‘DayZ’

DayZ

After watching this unnerving video, recorded by a player who had a run-in with a stranger who was most definitely disturbed, I’ve made the easy decision to never again play “DayZ”. Or, at least not for a while. This is one of the creepiest things I’ve ever seen in a game. Apparently, some unfortunate player unknowingly walked into a goddamn horror movie while doing whatever it is people do for hours and hours in the newly released “DayZ” standalone.

I mean, freaky stuff like this is bound to happen in a game that’s sold well over a million copies, but that doesn’t make it any less unsettling to watch.

Thankfully, all of the murderous players I encountered during my first playthrough of the game were of the violent and silent type. If any of them had switched on creepy music and started walking slowly toward me with axe in hand, I’d probably be in therapy right now.

    Oh come on. That seemed pretty staged to me. The guy was even laughing.

    • Lincoln Hawk

      Wait, this is scary to you? Couldn’t he have just turned and ran or smashed the character with a crowbar? What a pussy.

      • James Daniel Leazenby

        Axe beats crowbar anyday.

      You’re saying you wouldn’t have found that at least bit humorous?

      I didn’t find it scary… tad creepy and yes funny that someone would do that.

    I thought it was funny, but that song holds a special place in my heart, so that helps!

    I’ve had fun like this before. I’ve hidden in a room when people came into the Jail building (same one as here) at the NE airfield, doing the F13 sound ‘CH CH CH CH… HA HA HA HAAAA…’

    It’s quite easy, and part of the whole fun! Don’t be such a chicken!

  • SonOfVoorhees

    Unnerving? That was the funniest thing ive seen today.

    • Adam Dodd

      Shh, don’t say that, he might be out there listening…

  • Polsdofer

    That was awesome, look at all the people hating on you Adam.

    • Adam Dodd

      LOL, I know. I guess I’ve grown used to the abuse.

  • Beneviolence

    Hilarious! Tough to tell if it was staged or not but I don’t think the guy’s laughter was necessarily a giveaway. He just had a good attitude in the face of creepiness.

    That was hilarious and seriously creepy at the same time, love it.

    Dear god, I need a blanket and some cocoa.
