5 Historical Eras We'd Like To See More Games Set In

History is a well for great game stories. But some eras are overlooked. Here's five that Nuclear Salad thinks could be represented a little better. (Culture, Industry)

Feudal Japan would be cool.

I was thinking of adding that. It would be nice to see a game about ancient Japan that was't like Dynasty Warriors.

When GTA vice city came out my friends and I sat around and we said "you know what would be badass? A GTA set in the 90s around L.A and the gangsta rap scene... and boom! Out came San Andreas. I always thought GTA could really do almost any decade and make it good... Mobsters in the 50s , 70s style hippy/drug scene, even future... I guess GTA IV kind of covered 2000's ...

That's why I loved Red Dead Redemption so much. The open-world sandbox game works for just about any time period because no matter what anyone else says, it's not about violence and sex but about exploring a world that makes the GTA games (and game like it) awesome.

I want to be a caveman and meet other cavemen to go on adventures with. Clubbing others on the head would never get old. We could also ride on dinosaurs and hunt for stuff.

Left 4 Dead with cavemen and dinosaurs.

Except that cavemen and dinosaurs never coexisted, but that never stooped Hollywood from doing it.

Just in time for a grim and gritty Batman Begins-style reboot of The Flinstones!

Interesting read, and i can say all those periods interest me quite a bit and I think the 1900 - 1930 periods is the most under used time period. With all the major events, technical advancement and just being badass it's a shame so few games are based on it.
