Kinda sad that a game with the depth of loot-n-shoot being the only mechanics got that far.

the core mechanic of PUBG is last-man-standing. but what makes it special is last-man-standing with 100 players.

PUBG needs a zombie game mode next; that will take it to the next level.


You mean Day Z?

Because that game you described is Day Z.

Also, whether it's 10, 100, or 1000... Last man standing is just last man standing. A game mode done to death in a variety of fields. Dunno. Gunplay feels crappy to me, servers were garbage when I first played and still appear to be(bought it early in EA, refunded, bought again on release, debating another refund)... Just don't understand what makes the game "good."

I haven't played DayZ, but from what I understand DayZ is that meme game that never really took off since it was riddled with bugs and optimization issues.

In any case, PUBG is DayZ done right since it actually has mainstream appeal now.


Day Z was an Arma 2 mod that had it on the top-spot of Steam's most played for a long while, and was getting hit up by many popular youtubers/streamers back when.

This game is just the umpteenth clone of DayZ that took off with the Chinese market, gutten the zombies, and stole The Culling's general game design to offer a wholly unoriginal and, honestly, less optimized experience.

I don't think it can be more unoptimized than any mod of arma 2 since arma 2 is notoriously hard to run and very CPU-bound.

I thought PC gamers had higher standards but PUBG proves that wrong.

That's unfortunate that the standards of gamers have tremendously dropped this gen.

I mean, it was. Nowadays it's pretty much a breeze to run. Just saying that PUBG only took off because of meme pandering and borderline hivemind culture. The game itself on a technical level is poor at best, and it's mechanically shallow. PUBG is about equally as s*** to run. Granted, no one ever plays either game maxed because you get way too big an advantage for running it like you have a potato.

Just found a video of Day Z , damn that FPS is next-level-s***ty lol:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AVpVvyxi9VU

I'm glad this game didn't take off...well it's not possible for any game that runs this s***ty to take off I guess.

And this:

Just to prove that it wasn't the 750 TI that was screwing over the FPS.

It's the genre honestly, FPS is just s*** across the board. I would post some videos of PUBG with bad FPS as well but I'm wading through page 20 of narrative "what to do to fix bad FPS videos" that show minimal gameplay.

Except PUBG 1.0 is actually well optimized now. Literally with phenom ii x4 955 and GTX 1050 Ti (which is worse than GTX 970) I get 50-60 FPS at 1080P high after landing.

People with up-to-date machines run at like 120+ FPS on ultra.

I'm aware, my point was mostly that you can find videos of anything with bad FPS eventually if you look. Mind DayZ was an Arma 2 mod, so they are likely quite a bit more plentiful. The technical complaints more are from the god-awful hit reg/lag the game seems to have. I've walked through getting guns emptied in to me at medium range only to die a good while later from that exact event after I've killed people early in EA. Post-release, it seems better, but it's still beyond garbage in the grand scope of FPS titles.

Which is why you saw the title, clicked on it and wrote a comment. Spending all this effort over something you don't care about.
