The lack of imagination in gaming is hidden behind 'reality'. When you are out of ideas you try to bring it as close as possible to the real stuff...lame.
it's called immersion.

Maybe once we have high speed holographic projectors mounted on top and bottom of the ceiling, while you sit in the middle of the room raised up, having the projectors cast a full 3d environment all around you, we can start talking about realism.
Maybe add a treadmill where you stand, which adjusts itself to your walk speed automatically, a shotgun as control device, and of course a full body suit which electrocutes you at the spot a zombie jumps you if you do not take it down in time.
THIS would be close to realistic. Until that level is reached, i'd rather have fun playing a game.

Immersion is something that is created in the mind. Not on a fucking computer screen.
If you need something to be 'realistic' to be immersed then you have no imagination.

A bike helmet is designed to protect your head and neck while also having maximum visibility.
People are not thrusting narrow blade weapons, axes or arrows into your facial region while you are riding your bike.
Also, helmets have advanced 800 years since the era this game was based upon.

Im not sure how you consider the combat boring in Mortal. Its not all WoFs and 90s. The melee combat is actually quite fun if you find an equal opponent. Ive had much more adrenaline induced fun fights in Mortal than DF has ever given me. Much more skill based then stat based. You guys just made you cant handle the 1st person view and need the noobish 3rd person and giant AoEs with WoFs to feel superior. Mortal is more close to Mount and Blade combat , as DF is like an arcade shooter.
