I'm a long time RPS reader but only just started playing ArmA 3 a couple of days ago - despite owning it since Alpha - hence I didn't realise there was an RPS community for this game. I decided to install it the other day and give it a go and now realise what Ive been missing! My only previous experience of this IP was the original Op Flashpoint...
Boring gaming history: wrote text adventure games on ZX81 (yes I'm that old), started gaming properly on Amiga 500 (mainly Elite), then Doom in black and white on PC, etc. First online gaming was with RtCW which I played competitively, and a break, then played a lot of DoD:S, Bad Company 2, BF3, TF2, L4D/L4D2, Killing Floor, etc. I like sims, especially MS flight sims and have lost many, many hours to Elite Dangerous since Beta. Also played the usual stuff like Civ, Total War series, etc. Not done so for a while, but I also used to mess about with consoles which have generally been for Elder Scrolls games and the GTA & Borderlands games.
In that scary place known as "real life" I am the wrong side of 40, live in the UK, run an IT company, and spend my free time worrying about work, designing an army of killer robots and walking my dogs with Mrs Miloki. Oh and drinking wine. Lots of wine
