They won't. If you're not prepared to invest time into the franchise don't even approach it. A partial reason for the lack of technical innovation in ArmA is that they're trying to keep mods from the previous titles compatible. Laughing off ArmA because it requires modding is missing the point. The ArmA you get out of the box is just a framework for mods. Most players don't even load the single player campaign at all, going straight to the mission editor and playing out of it. It's a true niche product that requires a different approach.
