@cymartin He's not the one maintaining the game is realistic, authentic, whatever you want to call it. And as for the argument the locations can be realistic, authentic, yet the gameplay doesn't need to be: doesn't the crux of the game revolve around shooting? Yes, Tom bandies on about regenerating health but his wider point is that these games are supposedly based on real-life exploits, when in fact they make the whole idea of warfare an act of enjoyment. Basically, Warfighter is directly competing with Call of Duty. That's fine, just don't use realism as a buzzword to generate sales.
