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.
