"High profile" is a good get out of jail card here - I was expecting a list of obscure PC strategy games. I think Assassin's Creed is uniquely good at creating interest in the time periods the games take place in amongst the people playing it.

Every Total War game should be on there.

* It's missing Age of Empires 1,2,3 + Expansions

* 1602 AD

* North vs South - NES

This is a very weak list. Having Call of Duty in a "best historical games" list is pretty much a joke.

As for my picks, I liked Crusader Kings and Dawn of Discovery.

The original, WWII CoD games were actually quite good for their time, which are what the article refers to. The CoD series only declined after CoD4 when it stopped evolving.

COD 2-4 were pretty awesome though, so it's rightly placed on the list, but I can't agree so much with further re-hashed installments.

Call of Duty 1 and 2 were superb WW2 FPSs. Instead of Brotherhood in Arms I would definitely go with any of the pre-modern Medal of Honor titles. The level in Frontline, Arnhem Nights, was particularly excellent, and the music was superb.

I totally remember Shadow of Rome, that game was the sh*t
