Some people enjoy being right

In video games, realism often means depth, complexity, and in some games teamwork. These games are a niche, but some people only play these type of games. My English teacher exclusively plays Flight Simulator, with a homemade TrackIR thing (that's how much he likes the game).

I personally can't imagine playing any FPS that's not realistic because realism forces so much teamwork in a game like Project Reality, a mod for Battlefield 2. Of course, there are features in that game that force teamwork that aren't realistic at all, such as creating spawn points.

But in other games, such as racing, I don't enjoy too much realism (in this example, because I suck at driving games), so I only play Gran Turismo (which would be halfway I guess).

i live in the real world. a game like GTA IV makes it so i can go and express myself how i wish i could on a daily basis.

if its unrealistic, my mind just screams "impossible" over and over and i cannot get into the game.

Realism sucks. Give me a game like Contra with infinite ammo. Remember that? infinite ammo? Sigh.

This guy hits the nail on the head on how fat nerds have ruined gaming forever:

Working together towards a common goal (aka teamwork) has absolutely nothing to do with realism or game mechanics.

I find the hdr bloom to be too high in the outdoors. Plus the motion blur is distracting.

Seriously, I think it's more simple than alot of the suggestions (only read half the thread, but still).

If you want realistic you gotta play with people you know, because a real Squad works together and thinks alike. If you don't have a squad-worth of people to play with, then something like COD is gonna be easier to play.

Now, BFBC2 is awesome for realism but it's also a game that is alot harder to get into due to the learning curve. Most people aren't looking for something where you have to think when you play a shooter... Hence CoD's popularity.

This thread fails. Every one will have there own opinion. **** 99% of all Hollywood movies are unrealistic (even the war ones- ever seen Windtalker, Nicholas Cage has unlimited ammo the whole time.

Yes if I am playing are a FPS about a real war, I want the guns to be realistic to that time period, but story line no thanks. I have seen real war, and it’s not something I want to play in a game.
