@Jackal: "Amen. And I must say to not see a enticing Campaign based on WWI is pretty dim on the part of both of you, the world hasn't always revolved around the US. But that's fine everybody has there own opinion and I respect that...you should simply look more into it, the same rifles used by the British and Canadians in WWI were the same as WWII. "

The vast majority of people know nothing about the first world war.

A game about spending months on end in trenches and getting all manner of diseases doesn't seem like much of an enticing game to me.

Set it in August 1914 or the Hundred Days and there are no trenches.

edit- or the Eastern Front or Palestine, for that matter.

They could spin it a hundred ways. Bottom line- It wouldn't hurt to try...

You have Americans, British, Canadians, Russians Germans and a small letter list of other nations, I don't see how it couldn't be unrelatable...

I think it could make an excellent game.

Well you could argue not many kids knew so much about WW2 before all the games came out...do the same here, set it up and introduce it in the proper way so people know what WWI was all about. It's called marketing and commercials

But you are right the vast majority know nothing, I guess its because we've all grown up on the movies and tv shows of WW2. But I really think its time for a changing of the guard...

I could argue that many kids know less about WWII thanks to games.

I wouldn't mind seeing a WWI game. WWII has been way too overdone.

lol yeah your right on the money but you know what I'm getting at...if done right I think it could be a huge money maker.

Can't you just picture it...

Guys running left and right dropping like flys from the mustard gas, shells obliterating entire human beings, storming over the barbed wire to an enemies position or fending off an attack, a sniper picking your spot not even being able to peer out of a trench without getting your head blown off...

Violence sells, in the end I think it's be a huge winner, people just need more education on the subject. Oh God, I just got thinking about something a WW2 Vet once told me...suffice to say 'gloryfication of war' came up more than once. He's right, but I'd still pay full-price for this one...

Since game companies are American-Centric, you could have the first mission be a cinematic, intense attack into German trenches in the Argonne in late summer 1918. And then it becomes a war of maneuver and is essentially the same as a WWII fps, except with different weapons.

Or see the grandeur and pageantry of a pre-war army being smashed, bloodied and annihilated in the shock of modern warfare in August of 1914.
