Reviving Operation Flashpoint is one way they can do that. Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising has been in development for several years now, with the hope of creating a massive, open-world military game that'll appeal to both hardcore fans and more casual players.
To appeal to a more casual market, Dragon Rising just has you worrying about your 4-man squad. You can give them orders, tell them where to attack, where to defend, and so forth, all from your first person point of view. If you're so inclined, you can also pull open a tactical map to get a better look of your surroundings, but overall it's not super tough to get your guys to do what you want them to."
