This game was a fucking waste of $60. It's boring and repetitive. I only play it to get my money's worth, but I cry the entire time. How many fucking times can I shoot Alex? How many times can JTF fucktards mis-identify Rikers as Cleaners? How many fucking times can I do the identical "restore the water," or "restore communications" or "stop badmans from buying guns" missions before I buy my own goddamn weapons and start killing mans on the streets of New York for real?

This is basically a big budget, dumbed down, mass market, version of DayZ for feminist games media journalist and other noobs to play without being butthurt.

It's not, not even close. I could write a doctoral thesis on why your wrong, but I'm too lazy. There too completely different genres of games. Day Z is a survival shooter, The Division is a loot driven cover based shooter. There are .....now mark my work carefully.... there are "times" in The Division, while in the Dark Zone you get that same delicious paranoia of Day Z, fearing you'll be murdered and robbed of your precious loot. But other then that the game plays significantly different. And once you figure out that the only penalty to getting murdered is mainly too your pride that quickly wears off. Recently the Dark Zone went from "whats the point" to "seriously broken".

My findings with this game, and a lot of other games, is the crappy style most players these days take to playing games. Which is burn through it as quickly as humanly possible to get to "The End Game" only to find that part of the game repetitive and stale. I think if your goal in this game is to get to the Dark Zone to rob and murder your in for some major disappointment.

Day Z is an awesome game, but has its broken issues too. Every Day Z clone that has come out, to my knowledge, has been a complete cluster fuck.

Anyone played this since all the patching? I hear it's a lot better than it was.

Yeah I played since they did the weapon patch... definitely felt better. Loot drops are now like Diablo 3*, pretty much every enemy you kill drops something. Gotten plenty of set pieces just running around the campaign map and killing the roaming packs. Plus they brought back all the named bosses that have their own section, and you can farm them every couple of hours.

*Like D3 as in, you get a lot of stuff aka candy from a pinata. That stuff might not be better than what you have, but you can always sell it or scrap it.

They are doing another balance to stop people from tanking armor.

Apparently there was a bug that kept the NPC accuracy at 100% all the time, hence why that guy holding his piece sideways could snipe you from 2 blocks away.

Id like to get back into playing it but at the moment too many other games I need to spend time with. I went on for about 20 minutes they made paroling NYC a lot more meaningful. Before everyone one I played with just fast traveled to the daily mission, making the large game map irreverent.

I picked it back up for a couple of weeks. As mentioned above, tons of new loot and the game is fun again. Farming outside of the Dark Zone is worth it which makes it fun if you are running solo. Same problem though, once you get your gear score maxed out you find less and less loot you want/need.

I am back on Rocket League now, when they update the gear score again I will jump back in.
