7 Days to Die

One of many contenders in the new "multiplayer zombie survival simulator" genre. The graphics are pretty much shite and it's still in alpha so quite glitchy (so basically DayZ in those regards), but I'm already enjoying it more than DayZ. It has Minecraft-style voxelly construction, so you can actually mine underground as well as build whatever kind of structures you want. Probably the best feature is that the zombies will try to break down your structures to get to you, with better materials like concrete and metal taking more punishment. Set up a well-fortified structure with enough traps around and it might just last the night without getting breached. In the morning you can survey the damage, repair the walls, and re-set the traps. That's another key difference I see from games like DayZ: the zombies really are a threat, not just the players. They're weak and slow in the daytime, which gives you lots of time to explore and loot, but at night shit gets real - they start running fast and breaking your shit. There's also a grid-based crafting system ala Minecraft, with tons of craftable items. So if you can get past the poor visuals and general wonkiness, give it a look.

Depends on what server you're on, because there are modes which encourage varying levels of PvP. But the focus is definitely more on cooperation, and ain't nobody likely to be stupid enough to be out hunting other players at night. I don't plan on playing on a public server unless I get really bored anyway.

Rust uses PVP as the main threat generation (and people are assholes, so they will kill you for no reason). The zombies are deadly if you're an idiot, but other than that, players are going to be what kills you 99% of the time and zombies are limited to certain geographical areas (namely around towns).

7 Days seems to be PVE zombie-centric with almost no focus on the PVP aspect. (and shittier graphics) Minecraft with zombies.

Minecraft has zombies and had them before DayZ or 7Days or Rust.

On paper, Rust and DayZ are the better games but 7 Days to Die seems like something I'd have a better chance of playing.   Rust might make me want to hand-murder someone after a while.
