I recently had a thought that it would be cool to play through all of the historical games I have in chronological order. I am sure that I am not the first one to think of it, but I am going to try it. The question is, do I include games with historical themes or purely simulators. I like the idea of using games that aren’t just consims in order to compare the experience. Do you learn anything about history purley from theme, or does it need to model history in order to learn. I am going to try to get a group of people to do this with me to to get their thoughts throughout the process. If it is interesting, I will write them up. Here is the list!
The Age of Sail
The Great War
World War II
- Unconditional Surrender: World War II in Europe
- The Hunters
- Advanced Squad Leader I have multiple ASL Starter Kits, but I will lump them all together for this exercise.
- Operation F.A.U.S.T.
