DayZ Plans: Dogs Soon; Standalone Version Eventually?

Eurogamer examines the popularity of the DayZ modification, saying that as of yesterday the Zombie mod boasted 420,000 players, which helps explain why Arma II: Combined Operations is once again #1 on this weeks list of bestselling games on Steam, as the mod has made the game a fixture on that list for nine consecutive weeks. They speak with the project's author, Dean Hall, who works as a multiplayer designer at Arma developer Bohemia Interactive, and he tells them they may make a standalone version of DayZ, perhaps as a free-to-play game. In the more immediate future, he has been working on overcoming the issues preventing the implementation of dogs in the mod.

How can people stand to play this game??? I bought ARMA II specifically because of the hype surrounding this mod. It was a waste of money. This is a true alpha with all the horrible gameplay you can imagine. Even the ARMA II engine feels like cobbled together code that was put together by a bunch of monkeys. The game has amazing promise....but results in a HORRIBLE experience. I can only hope a real mod group or gaming company remakes this under a different name and it runs on top of a decent engine. VALVE, ARE YOU LISTENING?

I agree it's not for everyone, or even most people. If the idea of running through some woods/fields for a couple hours, only to arrive at a tree stand with nothing but a couple empty cans and a bandaid doesn't do it for you, then it's probably not for you.

...and I'm pretty sure Valve would gay up a game like this, bigtime. It also needs to be big, and Valve doesn't do 'big'.
