Interesting article I found on Kotaku.
"Unfortunately, most WWII games are a mishmash of America’s contribution to the Western front, including the D-Day invasion, Operation Market Garden, and the Battle of the Bulge, as well as Russian battles in Stalingrad and Kursk."
"The Pacific Theatre is criminally overlooked in WWII games. In fact, the only AAA games I can recall being set there are Call of Duty: World at War and Medal of Honor: Pacific Assault. Major conflicts like Guadalcanal and Iwo Jima are skimmed over....."
and this was interesting to read:
"Did you know that Americans and Germans fought alongside each other during WWII?..............."
Now I do understand that they are mentioning mostly FPS Games but this article still merits some reading as some of these battles I have not even heard of before. Not even sure if Matrix/Slitherine Games have any scenarios of these mentioned in any of their games.
"The power of a first person game is to put you in the moment. Third person games work more like movies, and strategy games make things so abstract they can lose the personal touch entirely. Shooters like Call of Duty have the ability to transport us back in time, to let us live through harrowing moments first hand. There’s a power found in being there; no other medium, no other genre, can provide that same feeling."
Not sure I totally agree with the statement I bolded here! I personally hate FPS games of any genre, so even games with VR would not be my cup of tea!

It is much harder to think about doing something than actually doing it!
