All true, but really there's no point explaining to the idiots who missed the OFP\ArmA boat. It's like missing Quake or Doom and now saying they're shit.
Not really, those games had simple, tight control systems and core concepts that were easier to grasp. Maybe people were just playing other stuff when they missed the boat, sheesh. I'm sure people would be much more open to revisiting the games if you didn't call them names and such though. For example if you had been specific like Jedi Master about what exactly to tweak it would be genuinely helpful as opposed to pointlessly harsh.
Anyway thanks JM for the pointers, I'll give it another whirl tonight.
