Anyone know about these really great realistic military games?

I think BOTH are great, and both are pretty realistic, I don't think I could say one is closer to reality than the other, especially because I've never been to war, and so didn't all the fanboys from one or the other game. What I don't like is when its users fight each other in the sake of fanboism.

If I were to pick which game I liked more, I'd say operation flahspoint 2, on account of graphics, animations and sound, which are the things I appreciate the most.

I began to hate arma 2's users comments against operation flashpoint 2, making me like less arma 2. Arma 2 fanboys got spoonfeed bullshit like arma 2 is the most realist thing out there, but it's not that realistic, it's just a game. The only thing I grant arma 2 and arma 2peration arrowhead, is the amount of content (remember quantity != quality), it has many vehicles, characters, it even have animals!
So Arma 2 is quite great, but i don't like it more than operation flashpoint 2. Operation Flashpoint 2 has a huge amount of character models and vehicles as well, but it's hard to realize because in the campaign you don't get to see them all, unlike arma 2 which displays all of its content in the campaign. There's plenty of things I didn't like about arma 2, but the worst is the tank AI, it's the same AI as its predecessor operation flashpoint 1 (which is operation flahpoint 2's predecessor as well obviously) Tanks are retarded in arma 2, they run over everything, including each other, killing allies sometimes, and it takes them SERIOUS amount of time to do anything, they always die, they are worthless. I'd scrap all the tank missions in arma 2. And another thing I don't like in both games is the vehicle driving, it's a very WEAK point in both gameplay wise, it's very awkward to maneuver with them, not because its realism, because it's badly done, so again in arma 2 i'd scrap the vehicle missions as well, operation flashpoin 2 only get to drive vehicles in multiplayer, although there's some vehicles you can get in in singleplayer. In account of realism, it's not very realistic being able to drive any vehicle in the game like you can in arma 2, ever head of car keys? you need them to drive cars (not sure what's the deal with tanks though, do they have.. tank.. keys? :-/ )
And last but not least, arma 2's map are very small, and even though graphics aren't that good, it runs very slow on my computer, while operation flashpoint 2 runs at max fps.

Arma 2 lost and I won.

I love the more "realistic" shooters like these than i do Modern Warfare 2. And MW2 is killer! Did you ever play Battlefield 2 on the PC? That was the sh*t!

I find modern FPS's a bit dull, although Left 4 Dead 2 and Serious Sam SE HD are a good fast fun game

Listen, there's only one realistic military game worth playing, and that's Marine Doom.

I'd never heard of Marine Doom before - have you played it and was it any good?

Marine Doom is just a MAP01 replacement for Doom 2. The shotgun guy's graphics are changed and so is the player's pistol and shotgun. Some sounds are also edited. There's also a wide open map using brown textures. That's it.

While I was joking, it sounds a bit like you didn't play it with a correctly patched executable. Someone went to town in dehacked.

Well, to summarise, it's exactly as marky_2 and dogzer describe, but also, all the weapons are rapidfire shotguns!
