So lately I've been absolutely immersed in this game called "Rust".
I've been finding it to be a LOT of fun, and I've actually seen many anime related conversations happen while playing, and even met a couple of CR members playing. I was curious just how many members play.

Anyways, a bit about the game.
You start out naked, yes, naked, with a rock.
You run around using the rock to help mine rocks, wood from trees, and other valuable sources (Killing animals for food/clothing/leather).
Eventually you have enough materials to make a shanty, a house, furnace, and your own nice secluded place. The map is HUGE, so finding a hidden area isn't too much of a problem. However, the main point/factor of this game is the PvP.
You can make tons of weapons once you learn how, including 9mm's, M4's, even grenades eventually. And you use all those to kill both zombies, and players. You can team up with players, and make either a village, or a single massive house, but trusting other people will become difficult, as it becomes all about surviving.
If the game sounds interesting, it's one I recommend.
It's currently in the Alpha early access on steam, but there's not many bugs, and the dev team does a phenomenal job about listening to the community and fixing things within HOURS.

If you do play, which server do you play on?
What is your play style?
Do you keep to yourself, isolated?
Do you have a group of trusted friends?
Are you 'friendly'? Or do you shoot on sight?

Decided to give the game a try after reading your post. After rage quitting on one of the east coast servers where I couldn't ever get any stone I went to the Ohio server where there was only like 2 people lol.
Since there are so few people I just gather resources and try to figure things out a bit. I run from everyone since I have no faith in those people online. I was crouched in some mountains area and came out for a peek when I heard people nearby. I then witnessed all of them have a shootout and murder each other so I hid again. xD I do not shoot on site or anything though. I try and leave people be as much as possible. I will probably try out another more populated server again and hope I have better luck finding resources.

Add me on steam : apex | Lain Owl =1AO=

I'm in a raiding crew on my server, you wouldn't really want to join us, but I could at least show you safe-ISH areas to build. Our place has been safe for like 7 days, on a server with usually 80/100 or 100/100 people online =)
Also, there's some servers with rules on them under community, where it's like PvE only (Build, research, etc, gets kinda boring though?) SET PvP (Where you can decide whether you want pvp in range of your house or not), etc. There's even servers where when you log out you disappear, instead of just plopping to sleep =) A server for every taste and style, that's why I love this so much.

Added.

My problem on the servers wasn't really finding a safe place to build so much as it was just I would completely get lost and never find it again or would never be able to get resources to build in the first place lol. The server I am currently messing around with is PvP and has sleepers but just doesn't have really any players. I would hate to just disappear whenever logging out. I like progress D= What's the name of your server though? After slaving away to build a brand new home only to misplace a pillar (after I had the roof and almost all walls up, metal door etc) I wouldn't mind jumping in to something a bit more challenging.

A word of caution to anyone thinking about getting this game: some jerks somewhere have been DDOSing all of the servers (as they are all public). Basically what this means is the game is unplayable for very long periods of time until the problem gets fixed. The game is 'in development' so stuff like this isn't entirely unexpected.

Aside from all that, it's a great game to play, especially if you have friends. However, due to its sandbox nature, griefers and jerk-faces are everywhere, so try getting into this game with some friends or find some people you can trust. My best advice for avoiding getting your base raided is to build really far away from the central area of the map. Resources and creatures don't spawn far out, but I think it's better to settle far away and put up with having to hike to the good stuff.

Once the server problems get fixed, and maybe another content update comes out, I'll post info for a good server I use.

Me and my girlfriend got the game yesterday. We also rented a server so we could keep a bit to ourselves. The game is great.
Having a lot of fun building houses and learning to build new stuff. This game has a lot of potential to become even more fun.
