Somewhat-relevant-poeBlog: I've always wondered how I would handle a post-apocalyptic world in real life. I like to think I'd handle it pretty well given my track record in such games, but really I'm more likely to be murdered by those much more manipulative and cunning than I.
It's a comfortable thought that one would be king if only the established order was upheaved, but really, you're probably not enough of a dick to last long in such endeavors. Your best bet is to raid a hunting store (grab some hunting equipment and some tents) and a military surplus store (more equipment / MREs) and get your ass into the most remote woods you can find as fast as possible. Also, hit a hobby store or something on the way - it'll probably get pretty boring after a while.
I already live in one of the least populated regions of the country, where hunting supplies are plentiful and walking maybe twenty minutes from my house would end up in wilderness.
I think my chances are the best you'll find overall, short of somebody in possession of a fully fueled helicopter and ran a home business of selling zombie repellent just before the doomy doom.
Here's how it would go:
1. You'd eventually run out of clean water, starve, or get sick
2. You would die
If you have a family add a step where you get to watch them do those things first
Zatojones, isn't that what happens pretty much always?
I know there's an implied immediacy in your statement, but if none of the things you listed happened, one would never die unless murdered.
Solution: Stock up on antibiotics (now), choose a wooded location with a stream, and learn to boil water.
Read Cormac McCarthy's "The Road." That's probably how it will really play out for 95% of most people around the world.
Wouldn't make a very good video game, though.

I've been obsessed with stalker games since they came out, and I've been obsessed with Clear Sky for the last few days. They are buggy, fucked up, weird, hard as shit, but also completely compelling. There aren't any other games like it, for better or worse.

This was my favorite in some time. Matter of fact, I think I'm gonna watch it again.

you're going to be just as useless after the downfall of society as you are now, NERD
Also +5 for small, medium, and large kitties.

Do you think the Midwest will rise in popularity after the apocalypse?

Five for PRESS X TO TOIL THANKLESSLY.
Someday there will be a game all about the stupid, pointless annoyances you have to deal with in life just so you can get to the stuff you really want to do. OH WAIT THEY MADE THAT GAME IT'S CALLED GTA IV LOLOLOLOLOLOL
