The hyper-real and scarily accurate zombie mod for Arma 2, DayZ, is one eery game. You could find yourself scavenging for goods in a peaceful environment if you’re lucky, or that tranquility could be broken by a sudden zombie attack or even worse, a human attack.
That’s part of the unpredictable charm of the game, as one player found out when he was kidnapped and forced to serve a gang of players as zombie bait for the day.
Australian writer Adam Ruch was taking a tour of the wasteland, when he was all of a sudden press-ganged by five players. Forced to serve as zombie bait, the hapless hostage tweeted his entire ordeal, which you can read about below, courtesy of Kotaku.
Next time I play this game, I’m making certain that I do so with a very specific skill set in order to avoid the whole Stockholm syndrome scenario.
