  1. The music sounds fimilar from spyro… the character from the music is Sgt… I don’t remember the other name of the bird.

  2. ARMA 3 in a nutshell

    Realistic server: thinks they are fighting Islamic State

    Normal server: Mindless imbeciles running everywhere

  3. Could’ve at lead shown the original Operation Flashpoint….. you know, where you had nothing on the screen, you have to pull out a compass and read a map to know where to get. No antlers on screen to babysit you and hold your hand.

  4. You could have mentioned Ark survival Evolved because that game may have dinosaurs but the survival aspect is definitely more realistic than Stranded Deep
