OpFlashpoint Documentary

A new video from GVMERS is a documentary on the "rise and fall" of Operation Flashpoint: Cold War Crisis, Bohemia Interactive's debut military first-person shooter (thanks Ant). The video discusses the breakthrough nature of the game, conflicts between Bohemia Interactive and publisher Codemasters, and how this eventually led to Arma, the spiritual successor to OpFlashpoint that soldiers on to this day. Here's a bit:
In 1997, a video game company named Bohemia Interactive was established in Prague. The Czech Republic had historically never been a hotbed for video game development, but Bohemia’s founders – Marek Španěl, Ondřej Španěl, and Slavomír Pavlíček – were on a mission. They were determined to create a first person shooter that would capture the reality of war more accurately than any game before it; an engrossing simulation that would depict what real battlefields were like, and feature an unprecedented sense of scale and attention to detail.

I got shot by enemies I never saw so many times in that game.
That didnt change with ArmA 1 or 2 or 3.
Loved when AI could see through fallen over trees or bushes, while you never knew what hit you.
I have given up on waiting for BIS to come back to their senses and do a real ArmA 2 successor.
