War Gaming Profile: First-Person Multi-Player, by era

As a strictly personal opinion: I've always detested games like the "Battlefield" and "Call of Duty" franchises. Their emphasis on run-and-gun tactics and "twitch" skills has never sat well with me. Surprisingly, it is the independent developers, not triple-A studios, that are bringing the most innovation to the genre.

Of the games listed below, I only play 2 of them ("War of Rights" and "ArmA 3"). I prefer these styles of games because the damage modeling, and communications require the players to embrace teamwork, which in turn fosters personal discipline and camaraderie. Keep that in mind if you watch any of the videos below.

Every time you see troops coordinating mortar fire, marching in formation, or firing in volley you are watching individual players personally conducting themselves with that level of teamwork.


Medieval: Mount & Blade




Napoleonic Era: Holdfast




American Civil War: War of Rights




World War 1: Tannenburg

&t=390s


World War 2: Post Scriptum

&t=220s


Vietnam: Rising Storm 2: Vietnam




Modern: Squad




Near Future: ArmA 3
