ArmA1 was more or less a stop gap for ArmA2

What you are saying is that Arma 1 doesn't matter. You are saying that it is fine that the game is abandoned in a very buggy state because it isn't a real product. Where is my refund then?

It has been 6 months since the last official patch. Before that the last patch took over 1 year to make. You consider that good support?! It takes them 3 years to patch what most companies do in 6 months.

You claim that Arma1 works perfectly for most users. That is utter bull. Most people have completely given up on Arma1 because it doesn't work. The servers have been almost empty for a very long time. Visit the BIS forums and read all the posts. Tons of technical problems.

Fanboys constantly deny there are problems with the coding of Arma1. They always say "it works perfectly for me, it must be because you are an idiot and don't know how to use a computer". Sorry Mr. Fanboy, but I bought my first computer in 1984. Since 1997 I have been building my own PCs. I don't claim to be an expert but to simply brush off Arma1 problems as "my fault" is laughable. Funny, how all other 3D games work perfectly. Arma1 is the only one with problems for me.

Arma1 was a constant beta with the paying customers working as beta testers. BIS makes a single change and it takes them 2 years to get it right (if ever). The community has been permanently split down the middle between different patches (half playing the last "final" patch and the other half playing the beta patch). This has been going on for several years now since Arma1 has been released. BIS is always VERY SLOW to release the Linux dedicated server files. It wouldn't be so bad if their patches were flawless but they often create more new bugs than they fixed!

Enjoy your crashes and bugs. Arma2 will be abandoned just like Arma1.

I just don't get it, they keep releasing bug filled games, one after another, people keep buying them, even though the previous game is a mess, and turn around and tell them 'good job'.

There is a huge collection of rabid fanboys that think BIS can do absolutely no wrong. I know it sounds like a cliche but it is so true. I assume many players were young when Operation Flashpoint came out and now that they are older people feel nostalgic towards BIS.

ARMA1 still is not working properly. It takes BIS 6 months to a year to release a buggy patch that does more harm than good to make the game stable. They run open beta tests on patches in the community and then completely ignore the results and release final versions of the patch with new UNTESTED features that takes them another year to fix!

There are tons of people who work on missions and addons and never actually seem to play the game. All they really are in love with is making things for Arma. What is amazing is almost none of these creations are used by the community. Only a tiny fraction ever get used.

Arma1 is abandoned and the fanboys line up to be screwed again by BIS.

The USA can keep their #24 spot and all their guns.

I much rather prefer sending my kids off to school in slot #44 and not have to worry about them. Gun control works. Any idiot that would argue that is well, an idiot.

It's not about Censorship. It's about the proper forum.

Really? Are we not discussing this game and the real purpose of the American government for making this game? Ya, that is completely off topic.

Sure it is just a silly video game but its real purpose is disgusting. Americans are so brainwashed that they don't even question the constant onslaught of military propaganda aimed at them.

C'mon Blue, just delete them before that is all this thread is made up of. People will just keep replying to them when they are still here.

Isn't it ironic that this a game that is supposed to be about honor and fighting for freedoms (including freedom of speech).

Some people don't like being challenged to think about issues. It is much easier to blindly follow.

Ring the patriotic bell and the American dogs all salivate.

This was in development far before the economy went in the toilet. Your conspiracy theories fall flat.

Wow, you must be Conservative because your sense of humour has been completely removed, lol.

Conspiracy? What does being critical of the actions of the American military and government have to do with Conspiracies? This game is for recruitment purposes. This game is aimed at younger boys who are impressionable.

My guess would be very few people here are conservatives.

What are you basing this on? Most NRA gun-loving conservatives would be blindly patriotic and would love this exact product.

What do you think your government funded this video game for? To give people something to do while the economy went down the toilet?

Ever heard of Call of Duty or Battlefield or any of the dozens of other games featuring U.S. forces?

None of those were funded by the American government for recruitment purposes.

Maybe we can stow the politics and leave it out of the GAME thread?

Yes, can't figure out how politics would fit in a thread about a game designed by the American military to recruit you people so they can be sent off to war. Nope, it doesn't belong here are all.

Translation: Conservatives don't like bringing up the fact that they are targeting children.

It isn't a free game unless you live outside the USA. Americans paid for it with taxes to recruit psychopathic little kiddies who think it is a game to murder other human beings.

Another horrible console port. Damn, it really does look like this will be the last gaming PC I make. I hate all those 12 year old kids who are satisfied with console crap.

PC gaming is just getting shittier and shittier.

While console gaming has been absolute shit right from the very beginning. The difference is console gamers are proud of their mediocre shitty gameplay because they don't know any better.

I just wanted to say that Starship Troopers was a horrible, horrible movie. Robert A Heinlein is rolling in his grave.

It wasn't smart, it wasn't campy, it was just plain bad.
