Spoils of War: Historic FPS games

Over the years, developers have often turned to the pages of history for wars, conflicts and real-life combatants to inspire first-person shooter video games. Instead of conjuring some alien invasion or shadowy government conspiracy, many studios see greater sense in basing games on real-world concepts, which are often more amazing than fiction. The Vietnam War and other modern conflicts have proved rich source material, but World War II has inspired the majority of titles, predominantly because it was the last true war featuring a clearly-defined enemy that must be stopped at all costs. So, Digital Spy investigated the real-world FPS genre to see why it remains such a compelling prospect for gamers. (Culture)
