I think "realism" and fair play in gaming is mutually exclusive. Like how every single WWII FPS has depowered the M1 Garand, due to balance. But in real life, that was the beauty of it, it fired a full powered round like a K98K, but it did it semiautomatically. It WAS a huge advantage, and it was quite unfair. So are night vision, smart munitions, and air strikes. That's why there can only be so much realism in games like BO. It can be realistic or it can be fair, but it can't be both.

Medal of honor is so balanced its funny, most of the taliban is carrying ancient crap but these guys are shown with new red dots, new russian weapons, like every single one has an mp433. In reality a tokarev is considered a status symbol.

Wasn't being a suicide bomber a class option in Desert Combat?

There is a thing call sportsmanship where if you win, don't brag about it, that just makes you look like a dick, but if you are good at playing, congrats, but complaining about how others keep on kicking your ass because they use "cheap tactics" that are encouraged to do or is SOP in real life, well then you are just a sore loser.

As the line goes "It's a legitimate strategy"
Believe me, I couldn't agree more. I use 203s to deal with anyone who hides in a small room or something, yet it's supposedly "cheap" and "unfair" to do so. What else am I supposed to do, run in with guns blazing and let them kill me?

Besides, I've nailed other players square in the face, purposely, from half a map away on multiple occasions in both CoD4 and MW2 with grenade launchers. And considering you can't actually aim them (sorry, but that on-screen "reticle" does NOT count), I'd say that makes me pretty damn good with them.

People who whine about others utilizing a valid aspect of the game need to sack up and learn how to play.

I remember when I played America's Army, a lot of servers had a rule against using M203's in the first 5 minutes of play. Unbe-fucking-lievable.

Theres a pretty vocal subculture of COD that says what guns and perks are acceptable and whats for "noobs."

If its in the game, use it.
Ive only been booted once for "noob toobing."

Just dont camp spawn points or boost to nukes.
