It isn’t scary, it’s awkward and cheesy. It intimidates no one. It is a childish way to pretend to be crazy.

Since I stupidly forgot to hit record, I’ll just have to share a story from today:

I play DayZ with my older brother all the time. I just got my other younger brother into the game. Me and older bro both chipped in to get him a copy.
He picked up on how to play pretty quickly, but there’s a lot to learn. He’s up in Novy Boro fighting zombies, I’m down in Kozlovka, heading up toward him, watching his gameplay on a webcam and giving him advice. [Oldest brother was too busy to play]

I ran into another player who was AFK in a house and left him alone. He got back on keyboard eventually and tried to follow me around, it sounded like he was RPing a country folk type guy. Unfortunately, I had my hands full training my brother how to play, and didn’t want to hang with this guy. I ditched the guy in that town and headed northeast to my brother.

He somehow caught up with me twice more. I should have told him to leave me alone and sorry, but instead I tried tricking him by telling him to meet me at a church in, and then I ran to the next town.

Once again, he caught up with me. :/
Now he’s doing that stupid unoriginal “psycho” voice bullcrap. He says something like “Thanks for meeting up with me”, all sarcastic and bitter.
Hilariously, there WAS another church in the town that I had run to, and I tried to bluff again.
*pointing at new church* “Yep, yeah, this one, yup. Good job, we’re here.” o_o
“oohh reaaally…. you know, I don’t like it when people try to leeaaavve meeee….”

Now I’m getting annoyed. Guy went from RPing a country guy to this cringy emo crap. I don’t want to hang with him, I just want to meet up with my brother.
I jog around some buildings and into the church while troubleshooting for my brother, guiding him step by step on how to make rags out of a shirt, hoping this guy would lose interest and leave.
He follows me into the church, and starts his “crazy” talk again.

I snapped. “Okay, let’s fucking do this, fucking edgelord.” I pull out my bat[spiked], and pulls out his axe. “That voice isn’t fucking creepy dude, it’s fucking ackward, and-”
I side step him and knock him out with one blow to the head, pure luck. [It was so smoothly done. I really wish I had recorded this]

It was an immensely satisfying moment.
Also, the shotgun and 45. rounds were great, since my brother had found a 1911, and some shotgun rounds. Peanut butter and jelly.

In conclusion: Don’t do that voice. It’s childish, and I hate anyone who does it. You cannot be taken seriously after doing that.

    Take a chill pill. It’s a multiplayer game.
    If you can’t handle player interactions maybe you should just kill everyone you meet.

      Tell the guy stalking me that.
      I could have easily killed him when he was AFK, but I didn’t, because I care about people’s experience in the game.
      And if you want to interact with players in a healthy interesting way, pretending to be a edgy needy psychotic is far from the healthiest of social ways to interact with people.

      • I mean you cannot get mad at the guy for doing what he is doing. There are no laws saying you cannot stalk someone on this game. You can do what you please and tbh you should not be mad about the interaction because it actually seemed pretty interesting. He was just role playing and who knows you might meet psychopath irl and he might do the same XD btw there are no healthy interactions in this game anyway so I mean you might as well deal with it because its never going to get any better. I would find that interaction with that guy entertaining lmao

    I like your story, but what is more awkward than a guy doing weird voices is that you state your younger brother catches on quite quickly and yet he is at Novy7 Sobor and you have to give him tutorials on how to craft rags. That is like the most basic mechanic and he manged to get up there without needing to make his own already.
    Well I have met weird f’ers in this game and it is how you decide to deal with them. Also how old is your younger brother and are you happy to subject him to this game and it’s psychos even if you are not happy with these creepy interactions

      Oh, that’s awkward? Well then, let me explain.
      Calling him my younger brother was for brevity. He’s older than me [I’m 27], but younger than my older brother. Sorry for the confusion there, I used a bad choice of words.

      “…and yet he is at Novy7 Sobor and you have to give him tutorials on how to craft rags. That is like the most basic mechanic and he manged to get up there without needing to make his own already.”
      Are you saying it’s more complicated to look west as instructed, and hold down shift until you reach a town, than it is as a first time survival game player to figure out how a crafting system works? My brother isn’t familiar with playing PC-based games, but he has a functioning brain.
      Also, his first rag held him over for awhile. I was watching him play, and I don’t know how he never got bled by a zombie. He didn’t need a new rag until he got to Novy.

      “Also how old is your younger brother and are you happy to subject him to this game and it’s psychos even if you are not happy with these creepy interactions”
      Older than me [apologize once again]. Subjecting nothin’, we both know what we are getting into, with bandits and clans and death from nowhere.
      All I’m proposing to anyone reading is that using a stereotypical “crazy” voice is very annoying.
