Well, I just took the plunge and bought PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, and uh, this happened...
First try, no less! I hope I haven't ruined this for myself now, because I doubt it'll ever go that well again =P
Started off by heading a good way south of the starting plane's path hoping I'd be a good long way away from anyone else, to give some time to loot and acquaint myself with the controls. Worked a little too well, really. I moved inland a little and hunkered down between a wall and a sharp rise right next to it, and picked off a couple of people I saw running around. A nice, safe introduction to how the guns handled. First play area restriction, I was just inside on the south side, but the second moved it about as far north as it could possibly be, forcing me to just book it north as fast as I could and hope no-one would see me in the process. Luckily, I made it, and traded some suppressing fire with a fellow on top of a nearby hill. Fastforward a few minutes and another play area contraction and I see a fellow tearing up the hill I'm on in a small truck, quite possibly the same fellow from before. Shot him through the windshield a couple of times, and as he pulled around to get me, he got out of his car while it was going too fast and ran himself over. A little while later, it came down to me running from cover to cover (and getting shot at surprisingly little... not at all, really) in a increasingly small area. Walked almost on top of two people on separate occasions, took some hits both times but didn't go down. The second was in front of the tree I'm behind in the screenshot, but I'd heard some shots coming my way as I was running behind it. Came to a showdown between me and the fellow up the hill, and I got my shots first. So yeah. Good fun. The formula really works for this one.
If anyone picks this up, maybe shoot me a message. I'd like to experience this in a group.
