I think so, and Mel recommends it as well (she convinced me to buy it). It can be a bit of a slog at times, and Warriors are a bit weak compared to the other classes (Mage is the best), but it's fun, engaging, and they've gone to a great extent to convey the back story and the dynamics of the world into the game, to the point where it can suck you in very well at times.
There are also Star Wars and Monty Python references, so that's a plus.
You may not like the weapons though, as they don't seem to care too much about realism in terms of what a weapon can and should do.
Ask Mel for more information about it if you're curious, since she's played it more then I have.
All RPG's and Games are unrealistic, aside from RR/RC, EB, Flashpoint, Arma and Insurgency, but it's entirely okay in RPG's and indeed most games. Just not melee combat-representative tactics games. In those, unrealism is stupid.
BFBC2! yes! i play that, but i've just gotten it so it'll take me a while to get up to par again. I also play DOW 2 or any of the others, Supreme Commander 1, forged alliance, and 2, TF2, Civ V, and i used to be an EVE junkie but thats gone now....i'd really love to be a party of the clan though!
EDIT: also i play ARMA once in a while, but i gound that the online wasn't going to be as welcoming without a group so now i might have an excuse to get into it ;D

I am not going to list my games, I have at least over a hundred games installed onto my computer and entire sections of my cupboards full of PC, Xbox and Xbox 360 games and another cupboard full of PS2/PS1 games I don't play anymore.
But the main games I play can easily be listed:
Xbox360 - BF3 - MW3 - Space Marine - Command and Conquer 3 - Skyrim
PC: - DOW 2 Retribution - Command and Conquer - MW 3 - Half Life - Star Wars Empire at War - Mine Craft
I'm sure most of the men in the galaxy are familiar with the sinking feeling that accompanies the words "Do you think you could do me a little favour, darling?", but when the woman asking the question is an inquisitor it's even less wise than usual to say "No".

Just discovered the "game" Real Lives (more of a edutainment simulation, really). You are born in a random location to a random family and you grow up under the conditions of that country. My first life was a male in western Thailand who joined the army, married, adopted a daughter (who became a physicist), and died at age 83 having nearly run out of his savings (once you retire you're kinda screwed, though at one point he had a net worth of 1.2 million bahts (about $40,000)).
Oh, and there were about 50 major floods in Thailand over the course of his life, though none affected him.
It's also possible to deliberately choose your location and name, so I created a boy in Tel Aviv. He died during BIRTH, of asphyxiation.
There are a lot of options, from interests to careers, though some are inexplicably missing. For example, I would have liked to move in with my daughter as I got old, and I would have liked a wider selection of jobs -- while my Thai soldier eventually became a sergeant, "military officer" was not on the list of jobs he could have transitioned to. Another is that (in an online review) it appears possible to emigrate, but I couldn't choose this as an option, able only to move within my own country. This may simply be because I'm using the free demo...
