I've stuck for many, many years with Operation Flashpoint and nothing else. It goes back to 2001, and I must've played it for a full decade. By then it was looking very dated, and by today's standards, it looks laughably bad. But the gameplay...there's nothing else like it. Looking at it, you'd think it's just another shooter, but if that's how to approached the game, you would fail, and rather miserably. This is the game that put an end to first person shooters for me.

The Armed Assault series (aka ARMA) is the follow-up, but there's "something" missing that unfortunately fails at "simply upgrading the graphics", and that's all this game needed. I've never been able to quite put my finger on it.
