In order to make a realistic game, it seems that you have to include a
Heckler & Koch Mk 23 SOCOM, a Colt M4 carbine, an AK-47, a Mac-10, a
Benelli M3 Entry Gun, and maybe even a Desert Eagle. Or do you? There
are a lot of good, widespread guns that go unrepresented in any game.
But the conventional thinking seems to be "If we want Counter-Strike's
popularity, we need Counter-Strike's weapons." Hell, most realistic
mods are little more than ports of Counter-Strike anyway, copying not
only its weapons and equipment but playmodes as well. People need to
realize that people aren't going to abandon Counter-Strike to play a
brand new exact imitation that's still rough around the edges.
