He has a jetpack, so yes, it would be more believable. Its not like Galaxys travel at supersonic speeds that prevent any of its hatches from opening.

A more realistic game in a sci fi shooter where tanks float and no one can ever die.

Magnetic levitation using super conductors today IS real. So floating tanks 600 years in the future that utilize the natural magnetic fields of Auraxis is concievable.

But yeah, people never really dying is still a stretch, but here's my take on it:
Its estimated the human brain stores about 1000 terabytes of information.
Scientists have already developed a wifi technology that can transmit 2.5 terabits/sec, 8000 times faster than the fastest consumer landline (thats like 7 full bluray movies per sec fast) so its concievable the tech would be faster and longer range 600 years from now.
Tech could wirelessly beam new brain information to be stored along with prestored DNA to spawn soldiers using nanites.

So yeah those are both theoretically possible 600 years+ years from now. Do keep in mind that wireless hand held phones and doors that opened themselves were also once considered impossible and unrealistic only 40 years ago (think Star Trek)

Oh right, because we are so totally going to invent teleportation technology to allow us to teleport out of a fighter to shoot another fighter with a gun and then teleport back into our fighter.

Why don't we just teleport the enemy fighter into a bridge.

There is a point at which suspension of belief is not possible. Technology is plausible and floaty tanks are entirely possible... not to mention likely at some point.

all i can say is that was freaking amazing. I don't care how unrealistic it was. Ive played BF3 a few times, and I know that was some crazy shizite.

I agree, but if you are looking for the end all be all for realism, play ARMA 2.

ARMA2 doesnt realistically potray todays advanced body armors. Read this wiki on dragonskin armor. Http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j...arE8431WGmQnig

No one's arguing for absolute realism, but rather for at least plausible realism. I wouldn't have a problem at all with midair entry/exits if there were short animations that went with it. Hell, that'd only make it more difficult to do those types of maneuvers, and thus, more impressive. They'd be crazy, but still plausible. Teleporting instantaneously to driver's seats is not.

My keen senses detect some bias in the poll options.

For me the concern is less about people jumping in and out of aircraft and more about whether they're allowed to carry the missile launchers while flying. It's the same principle behind not letting MAXes drive tanks, nobody appreciates chasing down an MBT in a Reaver and having an AA Max jump out.


Without the missile launcher the loopzook is just a cute party trick.
