DayZ isn't really a conventionally beautiful game, but it does have an austere quality that I find appealing. That quality is on full display in the latest shots from Duncan Harris at Dead End Thrills, who has been running the game in offline mode to capture the cleanest images.

Call me crazy, but I'd love for Harris to go online and "embed" with a group of bandits or survivors as a sort of digital war photographer, capturing their harrowing deeds while (too much to hope?) being left alone by combatants on either side. New games journalism, indeed.
