When Rust first came on the scene it was a game that still to this day made a massive impression on me. I would not normally be bothered about a game like this, but a friend of mine had it and purchased it for me so I kind of felt obliged to play it. The game has had things added, taken away, and many changes, but the fact remains that the goal of the game is to simply survive which is easier said than done.
Smack Him With A Rock
Rust is a game where you pretty much start with nothing, but your undies! You need to do what you can in order to survive and to survive you have to do more than watch out for a bullet in the head or getting mauled by a bear! Hunger, thirst, and health all need to be kept in check if you want to survive. The most memorable thing about this game for me was how in the early stages of the game I was walking around smashing people in with a rock as that was all I had. This is a game where most of the people you come across want you dead, but you may come across a few good souls.
Everyone Get In A Circle
I think that Rust is a pretty damn solid and good indication of what would happen to society in a post-apocalyptic event. Once when I was playing I and my friend were ambushed and pretty much screwed with and tortured by a clan of other players before they killed us. It was a very messed up situation. They got in a circle around us and would not let us leave. The whole thing made me feel very uneasy and after this, I was always worried about running into this clan again. It was like they were the freaking Saviors from The Walking Dead!
There Sure Is A Lot Of Brown
If I had to associate a color with this game it would be brown. There is a lot of dirt and mud-covered areas in this game and it is an interesting choice. There is so much that when you do come across a woodland area or something else that it is pretty exciting. It is not an appealing looking game at all, especially in regards to the character models which have a super weird look to them.
Do What You Got To Do
Survival is what Rust is all about. Getting food, weapons, shelter, and most importantly of all finding some people to play with. You can be the biggest badass around, but sooner or later you are going to come across a group and you will be dead! The gunplay in the game is pretty basic and the way you craft stuff could be less of a pain in the butt as it is very menu heavy and feels far more convoluted than it should be.
I would have to say that this is the type of game where you are not always guaranteed to have a good time. It can often be a frustrating and pretty nerve-wracking experience in all honesty with you. However, there is just something about Rust that keeps me coming back to check it out. Seeing how long I can survive and seeing how many psychos I can encounter in the game! It is certainly not for everyone, but it is still a pretty interesting game.
