Their idea of quality is a 4 man squad entering into a country and wiping out all the combatants. Like some sort of newaged cowboys and indians.
Eh, depends on the game. Splinter Cell and Hawx were the only two "Tom Clancy" titles I enjoyed. Splinter Cell especially, but only the first three. They started to suck after that, but the concept is very different from most other games. Yes, its still "one guy versus the entire organization/group" but it does it so effectively, requiring you to be quick, creative, sneaky, very involved in the stealth aspect, in a way that feels natural, yet awesome. Not your standard "if you can point and shoot, you can beat this game." It requires tons of patience and thinking ahead, and planning, and timing. Great game, or at least used to be before Double Agent and Conviction.
I always thought Rainbow Six and Ghost Recon were insanely generic, boring, and outdated FPS styles. I never feel like I'm doing anything that isn't done more effectively, more smoothly, more awesomely, etc, than was done with Battlefield, or Call of Duty.
