Yeah I made the mistake of ignoring your advice and bought ArmA 2 on sale. Maybe DayZ is cool, I have no idea because I couldn't get past the clunky, floaty controls in ArmA 2. Everything just felt off and made it a chore to play.
That exactly matches my experience. I picked up ArmA 2 on sale and just found every aspect of it to be off. The graphics are rather sterile, the movement doesn't feel right, the AI is crap, the in-game speech repetitive, the level design bland, the game itself buggy... the only positive thing that can be said is that it runs really smoothly at max settings.
I keep seeing people talking about DayZ but all the videos I've seen look absolutely terrible. I honestly have no idea what all the fuss is about. I'm all for realistic, tactical shooters but ArmA 2 plays like ass. I regret buying it.
