There is no point to DayZ.Â Â
There are no objectives.Â Â You can’t win, nor progress, nor develop any significant power advantage over the environment, PvE, or other players.Â Â You invest hours on end only to lose it all in the blink of an eye.Â Â
All you can do is try toÂ survive.Â
You never thrive in DayZ.Â Â You are always one meal away from death. Around every bend in the road, in every building, Â every step you takeÂ brings you closer to your eventual demise.Â Â You will die.Â There is no survival.
Why then do I find myself on the tail end of a ten-hourÂ DayZ marathon, wishing I could skip sleep and work and log in for another ten?
