Airsoft is alotta fun, even tho it is not really all that 'realistic'.
That's why I like it. You can be as "rude/douchey" as you want while playing, then soon as the game is done, go for food or drinks with the same people who where trying to 'kill' you a few minutes earlier.
Now, as far as being realistic, I honestly think that depends on the people playing as well as what gear is being used. If you've got someone with a 300rd magazine in a rifle designed to take ~30rd magazines, then no. Not realistic at all. If you can manage to get guys who use "low-cap" or "real-cap" magazines, it takes it to a more realistic stand point. Airsofting also allows more a more realistic 'weapon' feel and load it compared to other sports.
The main reason I like airsoft though, is the pure fact that Canada's rules on firearms kinda suck. Airsoft lets me have an 'AR', put all kinds of bells and whistles on it and actually be able to use it with out having to worry about some insanely stupid law......and I get to shoot stupid people. That's always a huge bonus. Haha
