This may be the best zombie experience in years.

This zombie survival game stands out from the rest in terms of how it makes it clear that this isn't a typical survival game. There's no "survive so that you can thrive" like other survival games do. The world of Project Zomboid is harsh and unforgiving and it's not a question of will you die but when. After all, this is the story of how you died.

Systems for systems sake engrosses this visually dated (Which, granted it came out in 2013) survival game that does little to inspire exploration or actually traversing the game's world. Surely if you're someone excited by the scenarios and difficulty thrown at you with menial tasks to do, you'd like this game, but as someone who favors survival games heavy on exploring for nice vistas, beneficial resources, or the joy of finding breathtaking environments (like Minecraft,) this didn't do it for me. I became bored almost instantly, and the person I was playing with was very knowledgable and tried their best to make it a fun experience, but I felt like the game is more of a headache to control, loot, fight, and play than it is fun.

ive never been super into survival zombie games and the idea of losing EVERYTHING if i died and not being able to respawn was really daunting to me but this game is really fun for me. i can forgive the game for not having a super extensive character creator appearance-wise because i like crafting stories for my character based on the advantages and disadvantages i give them (very fond of the nurse i made who was also a smoker and light sleeper). i havent played a lot because it scares me tbh but ive watched a lot of videos of other people playing it and i rlly enjoy it

Just the best survival game ever..
