My gripe is with everyone who wants 100% Historical Accuracy in games….
While I enjoy historical accuracies in games based on historic event, it cannot be totally accurate for one main reason.
THE END WOULD BE THE SAME EVERYTIME! US WINS!(sans dice rolls). The roll of the dice would be the only way to have anything different.
Making games so that sides can be a little balanced giving some countries more than what they “historically had” makes the game playable. Who the hell would want to play Germany or Japan when they know they are going to get their asses handed to them by the US?
Yes, I do realize that you can get different strategies to win. BUT THAT WOULDN’T BE HISTORICALLY ACCURATE WOULD IT?
These games are made to give each side a chance to win whether it be from gaining certain advantages or by giving them a little more power or taking away some power.
These games are for fun. If you cannot gain enjoyment from them due to one little thing not being “correct”, then this is not for you.
My last thing… Take it for what it is, A GAME! Have FUN with it. If all you can do is blast how bad it is historically, sell it to someone who will play it for what it’s worth.
Thanks for listening…
