I'm waiting for the inevitable appearance of heavy tanks out of thin air, followed by their owner proclaiming his tactical genius, then his opponent saying one word, "CREEEEEEEEEEED!!!".
17:37:02   Quanto: I want to have sexual intercourse with every space elf in existence
17:37:11   SpardaSon21: even the males?
17:37:22   Quanto: its not gay if its an elf

[21:51] <@Droid803> I now realize
[21:51] <@Droid803> this will be SLIIIIIGHTLY awkward
[21:51] <@Droid803> as this rich psychic girl will now be tsundere for a loli.
[21:51] <@Droid803> OH WELLL.

See what you're missing in #WoD and #Fsquest?

[07:57:32] <Caiaphas> inspired by HerraTohtori i built a supermaneuverable plane in ksp
[07:57:43] <Caiaphas> i just killed my pilots with a high-g maneuver
[07:58:19] <Caiaphas> apparently people can't take 20 gees for 5 continuous seconds
[08:00:11] <Caiaphas> the plane however performed admirably, and only crashed because it no longer had any guidance systems

Yeah, makes it fun. :)
Why are people still making WWII games?
What's wrong with them?

Nothing really. It's just there are so many other areas to deal with combat.

WWII has been so bastardized in terms of FPSs that it's not even realistic (if it ever was).

I don't mind warping the history a bit to tell a good story and make good games but my god, how many times can we do the same areas with the same weapons and the same enemies and etc etc etc.

It's not too hard to make up a hypothetical war in the same time period.  Game designers these days...

Must admit, wouldn't be surprised if in twenty years time we are facing a generation that believes that Hitler named his Stormtroopers after Star-Wars...

 
I've found people that believe that already...

Most of the kids in my class don't even know who he is. One girl thought he was a heavy-weight wrestler.
Fun while it lasted.

Then bitter.

 
Guys, Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw has already answered this question.
Sig nuked! New one coming soon!

 
I was waiting for someone to mention him...

I suppose when it comes to World War Games, I prefer the Wolfenstein 1 approach, if you've got to fight Hitler, at least make it a Spider-Cyborg Hitler ;)

...and?  If you take more than 10% of what comes out of his mouth seriously, You're Doing It Wrong. :p

 
What? He has a lot of good points...:nervous:

And he also has a lot of overblown fluff, fanboyism, and flat-out inaccurate statements.  I haven't watched him in a while, but I remember there being a big to-do over some statements he made about the Wii shooter The Conduit's control system, which he heavily criticized while not once mentioning the fact that it's almost completely customizable.

And he was completely correct about Bioshock. 

His reviews are hit-and-miss, mainly.  But every now and then he hits the nail on the head.

They must be euthanized immediately.  For the greater good, of course.  :nervous:

Oh, Amen.

How old are you? If anyone at my school said anything of the sort 3/4 of the dudes in the year would've come down on them like a stack of bricks. That said, about 1/4 of the year only knows about Hitler from COD.  :D

15, but they said this last year, in grade nine.

I swear, all the kids I know take their WW2 knowledge from COD. They think they have any chance against my knowledge, which accounts for every history book in our library plus a huge number of wikipedia articles, documentaries, and stock footage. :D

If you're looking for good WWII games, you really need to look into Battlefront.com's stuff:

Games like Combat Mission set the standard for things such as combat physics, etc. The AI might have never been the best, but this is what a WWII strategy game should be. And I've never known Battlefront to employ opressive DRM stuff, either...

If you want a good WWII strategy game go play SP:WaW.

Just be aware there are some weird bugs with it these days.

Hmmm...

Can you expand that acronym?
