It's role playing at its finest. Some people looove that stuff. In the game I played earlier I ran into 4 guys who were talking straight military lingo and that's how they communicated. I find it kind of cool but I won't go that far. I guess it has some resemblance to people who role plan in MMO's, or Second Life. It's a way to live out fantasies from childhood without actually getting hurt, shot, runover, etc. Gobs did you DL the beta yet? Its about 9GB. We should try to get as many people as we can to play either a team fight or a coop mission sometime. That shit is intense as all hell. Any game can be fun when you play it with your friends. But I think how you act in games depends on the games themselves. When you play a milsim you act a little more serious. When you play BF3 there is some seriousness when there needs to be but not all the time. When you play Mariokart everyone goes crazy and has fun. It's sort of like dressing up. Your demeanor is an extension of the outfit. When you wear a suit you behave differently. When you wear shorts and a tee shirt you relax.
