    Yeah, at first it was supposed to be a game like Dead Island then they got inspired by DayZ so I guess that's why the called it WarZ?

    It's not like the guy who made DayZ owns the idea, anyone could think of that.

    The graphics look like shit, are we back in 2005? They look close to Battlefield 2 graphics. Usually graphics doesn't mean everything, but there is not even anti aliasing so it looks like they half assed the game to quick gather the Day Z players.

    ARMA II engine is awful, don't know how people can call the game "beautiful." And the new ARMA III engine also awful, literally a cargo container in that game falls at about 1 feet per 10 minutes.

    A simple tweak of a variable changes that. However you must realize that ArmA II was never meant to handle such numbers of entities etc., it was designed from the ground up to be a simulator of military ops and not an open world sandbox. Unlike most engines ArmA II does an amazing job at rendering the world and most people just bitch because they're trying to run it on ancient hardware. Granted, it's not as optimized as it could have been, but it's definitely far batter than many alternatives. War Z will lose that "realistic" aspect and will be reduced to yet another L4D2-ish UE3 game with zombies.

    They did that so older hardware computers could run the game.

    Day Z emphasizes realism (to a degree) and is oriented around you forming a survival strategy etc. L4D2 is just a hack-and-slash game.
