Why aren't there any WWI FPS games?
I would say that's it. The array of weapons is pretty much limited to bolt action rifle, pistol, and shotgun (well, there's the flame thrower and some light machine guns). Plus the war was fairly static in terms of where it was fought. I think that it would be hard for a developer to be able to churn out a game around WW1 that had the same variety of weapons and localities and mobility that WW2 had.Originally posted by: microAmp
Trench warfare isn't all that interesting?
Loved Red Baron 3D always hoping someone would do a new one, still waiting, oh well.Originally posted by: Skott
The WW1 aerial combat is about the only thing that can hold people's attention action-wise and they havent made a good one of those in years(Red Baron 3D). You could do a WW1 FPS kinda like Return To Castle Wolfenstien only set to the WW1 era I suppose but people would just say its a copy of RTCW and probably not play it. WW1 is often forgotten in history for a reason.
Yeah I was gonnna say that... adds some more elements that aren't part of other war-themed games. It would be cool if a company did some research and took their time to make a quality WWI game. I was thinking FPS, but maybe an MMOFPS would be pretty sweet.Originally posted by: Inspector Jihad
wwi had biological and chemical weapons.
That's a great example. I usually think of the Battle of Jutland as one of the potentially most interesting battles. While it was trench warfare in the west, on the Russian front the war was a lot more fluid. There's also the Russian civil war that happened during World War 1. There's also the Battle of Gallipoli, sub warfare, the start of the Turkish War of Independence at the end of the war, and what I think is one of the most interesting stories is about the battlecruiser Goeben.Originally posted by: pontifex
