I'm just hoping that it's not too late to get on the bandwagon.
Campaigns made by Bohemia are pretty bad and usually work only as a demo of all the things you can do, but there are lot of user made campaigns or mission that are way better and are worth playing.
And yes, ArmA is still best in multilayer with some of the communities like http://www.tacticalgamer.com
In those example communities I posted they play bit more realistic way but there are also communities that don't play so realistically or play only TVT (team versus team) or play somehow differently. There are lot of communities and I hope you find some great community where you like to play.
