Mods don't sell games. Zombie Mods sell games.
Seriously though. Anyone familiar with OFP and how the ArmA series turned out know that every copy of ArmA that has ever sold was due to modding. ArmA has none of the sp goodness that OFP had. It's one instance I can think of when a publisher was good for a series. Whoever was the producer on the Codemasters end was clearly responsible for OFP's SP campaigns. The ArmA series prooves BIS have no SP campaign abilities, whatsoever.
It's funny seeing people buy into ArmA now when these survival style mods have existed for years. And so many put us down on boards like these and others, not understanding why many of us could overlook the flaws present in the engine to buy and play such a quirky title. It was true sandbox gameplay long before GTA.
