DayZ is the first game in a very long time that makes me wish I had a new Mac/PC to run it on.
It’s a concept mod for a game, but a concept that is proving so damn popular that it’s now getting more and more support. Not bad for an alfa mod.

DayZ – Part One
DayZ – Part Two
In a nutshell, you land on a beach with some minimal kit, and you must survive. Survive fellow players roaming the land trying to kill you, survive zombies, and survive period. And when you die you lose everything and have to restart from scratch back on the beach. Now that adds pressure.
