Well, "gameable" is relative. If you mean shoot BBs at someone, then yes, it's gameable. If you're expecting the same type of accuracy at 100+ feet as with higher quality AEGs, then no.
While yes, for the money, you have a decent platform (and the word PLATFORM is the key), they require some work out of the box (even the good ones that will shoot 100K+ rounds stock) to perform competitively and give them reasonable accuracy and consistency. Most noobs are not capable of this. And out of frustration, they either give up, or buy a better gun (the one they should have bought in the first place) and end up spending more money than they needed to.
