Ok, so I bought Arma 3... I don't see the appeal.

Ok, first of all, Red Orchestra is NOT a sim. It's an FPS.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ARMA_3

Genre(s) Military simulation, tactical shooter

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_Orchestra:_Ostfront_41-45

Genre(s) Tactical first-person shooter

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tactical_shooter

A tactical shooter is a subgenre of shooter game that includes both first-person shooters and third-person shooters.



Uses wikipedia, ignores the fact that one says it's a "military simulation" while the other doesn't.

"Tactical FPS"=/="simulation". Tactical means it's not COD. It doesn't mean it's Arma.

Stop being a scrubcake, scrubcake.

Follow the line of logic. They're both FPS. You also never answered the question.

Tell me how this logically makes sense.

It's a sim when you are confined to a large island.
It's not a sim when you are confined to a smaller part of the large island.

"hey guize, did u kn0w itz 2004 and wikipedia iz n0t a g0od zource!?21/!?"


Wikipedia was never a good source. You know how anyone can edit them? Plus, like TimePharoah said, tactical shooters don't equal sims. Two totally different worlds. But you should know this already. And, if you're the expert (which you obviously think you are), why did you post on here? If you're such a genius, why couldn't you just do the simple thing and just junk it?

Did you even read any of my other points? I mean, come on, I didn't type up all that for nothing. Atleast give me something back, something to chew on. You know, that way I can spit it back at you? Red Orchestra has nothing to do with this topic lol.

That's not a question. Those are two statements.

"It's a sim" excuse does not hold up. The fact that you said Arma 3 isn't a FPS means you aren't worth debating with.

You guys aren't very good with logic, are you? You know your logical fallacies though, so I'll give you credit for that.

I don't enjoy the Arma series very much either....I've purchased all 3 so far and the breaking point for me is the controls. they just feel awkward to me and while Arma 3 has gotten better it still doesn't feel right. I still play it from time to time since it's the only real Military sim out there and when it clicks and everything works out as planned with your team mates it's amazing but the controls problems are always in the back of my mind and end up quitting after a hour or so of play.

... Why anybody plays DayZ is beyond me. Probably the worse mod ive ever seen. the Zombies are not even really a threat.

So you won't answer the question, which shows that I was right.
