America's Army made you 'train' with some weapons before you could play. This included things like pulling the firing handle and clearing jams. Basically it was a pain in the ass. I am all for realism in games - one of the reasons I don't play MMOs like WoW is because the combat and movement/collision are so unrealistic - but things like simulating the annoying parts of firearm use just aren't fun.
