I would like to dedicate this thread to everyone’s favourite (real-life-) war games, list yours below!
Mine are (in no particular order):
Battlefield 1, a game set in the Great War featuring many iconic but also less known battles, weapons and vehicles. Surely one of my favourites. A great detail is the codex entries, written by the Great War channel crew.
Call of Duty - World at War: one of the best ww2 games in my opinion. Features gritty realism for its time, and tells stories on multiple fronts from the pov of multiple soldiers and armies.
Medal of Honor - Pacific Assault: set on the Pacific Theatre of ww2, ground-breaking for its time as well. Also features you as a soldier at Pearl Harbour during the Japanese attack on December 7th, 1941 (a date which will live in infamy…).
Battlefield Bad Company 2 - the Vietnam expansion: 4 iconic Vietnam battles with real vehicles and weapons. Best expansion pack for any Battlefield game.
