Editorial: Welcome to World War 2.1

In this week’s Split Screen, Sean Knight and Richard Hayden look at World War 2 video games and wonder what the next wave of titles has in store (PC, PS3, Wii, Xbox 360)

It'll certainly be interesting seeing where WW2 games will go next!

Admittedly it's a sub-genre that doesn't really draw my attention. The last one I only bought because I wanted to play multiplayer with some friends.

You missed out on some good WWII games then!

I think there is still a wealth of possibilities within the WW2 genre. Granted they did get a little carried away there for a time, but they have since gone on to do the same thing with shooters set in the future. Maybe it's time they take a step back?

The problem is that developers fall into a set path where there is no innovation and everyone is making the same kind of game. It happened for WW2 games and it is happening again with modern-themed games. Time to break the cycle!

There was a while when it seemed like every game was a WWII game. Seems like everyone has switched to a more recent time frame. It will be interesting to see if someone can pick it up and deliver a unique experience.
