Wow. I… Well, I don’t mean to disrespect ya by not composing a suitably long response, but… this is Sgt Rock, a comic book. It was fun, and yes, fun was the point.
I move between playing relatively realistic games to less realistic games based on my mood, and, to be honest, every time I start playing a realistic game I invariably don’t like it because it’s boring, and I end up making it less realistic to suit my tastes.
Im not looking to explore or learn anything via wargaming, I just like to have fun with toys, following groups of men through the travails of combat to enjoy the story, in a highly dramatic, heroic, and romantic perspective.
