Give me some first person games that emphasize historical accuracy, no matter if shooter or rpg. My takes so far would be-Verdun/Tannenberg-Kingdom Come
>>6460325Verdun/Tannenberg ain't that accurate. They get a lot of things wrong. Though I guess it's the most accurate WW1 game since there's not much else on offer
>>6460325War of Rights is extremely accurate. Otherwise I can't think of any truly accurate games.
>>6460337might not be 100% accurate, but they're trying, and that's the important point. kingdom come is not too accurate either, but they're trying.
>>6460325Should I get tannenberg for 3 dollars? I liked Verdun but nobody plays it anymore
>>6460369Dwarf Fortress goes beyond ideology, it makes you realize that such labels are unnecessary when doing things like eradicating undesirables and mending psychological and economic turmoil.
>>6460367absolutely. i liked verdun too, but it was just too small and static for me. tannenberg has huge battles, still always at least one full server even in the morning, it's just great. bought it for 6€ two days ago and i love it.
>>6460325Red orchestra series, rising storm 2. Can't think of anything else atm.
>>6460325mount and blade warbandthere's plenty of mods for it, and the line battles in napoleonic warfare get close to being realistic.As long as you don't join some dumb larping regiment that you see people recruiting for.
All of the total war games I've played (Medieval 2, Empire, Napoleon and Shogun 2) were very enjoyable. Hearts of Iron 4 was also fun. Rising Storm 2: Vietnam is very fun aswell. If they count, War Thunder and World of Warships are both good games.
>>6460455I was never able to really enjoy that game because battles are pure trash, zero tactics and sieges are pure cringe
>>6460527there's actually mods that greatly improve the battle AI and implement real tactics. i spent hundreds of hours in Anno Domini 1257, or that ancient greek mod which's name i forgot. defending a hill with a real phalanx is fucking great. they also tried to improve the sieges, but it's really fucking hard to make sieges any good in that game. still way better than vanilla tho. AD1257 is like a line of coke compared to the cup of coffee that vanilla is.
>>6460535Sounds really good, I might give it a try. Any good modes from Steam Workshop?
>>6460473>Sekrit Dokuments Thunder>World of Paperships
>>6460369>Liberal Crime SquadDoes this guy completely lack self awareness?It's an outright parody game. Fun as fuck though.

>>6460325-Deluge mod for Warband
any games on the American civil war?
>>6460550The Deluge, it's filled with Poles though.
>>6460584Civil war 2 if you are highly autistic and like staring at shredded lettuce for hours.
>>6460584war of rights
>>6460620is that game online? is so are the servers dead?>>6460613>>6460607thanks gamers
>>6460369>no Papers Please
>>6460369I liked COH2it's dumb funSoviets best faction
>>6460933but how's the game when there's no event going on?
> War of RightsIsn't it a lost cause meme?
>>6461048There’s literally no story. It’s a multiplayer civil war sim
>>6461082Yeah, but why would they name the game after a lost cause meme?
Tbhfam The first two black ops are a guilty pleasure of mine because it’s a corny Cold War thriller and features all the classic characters like Castro, Ollie North, Manuel Noriega and even the Chinese who supported the afghans
>>6461093because they're idiots who think it was a war of rights
>>6460550no idea, the ones i was talking about have simple installers and are on moddb
>>6460369Okay leftypol thats an actual good list
Hearts of Iron 4Europa Universalis 4Victoria 2Dont reply with mean things
>>6460369What does dues ex have to do with communism?
>>6461211Its very anti corporate dystopia. In the first game I know that the rich hoard the temporary cure to a super virus that kills all the poor. Terrorists all try and hand it out to the poor and are generally the good guys. Monopolies are anti-free market so Its not communist but I see why its listed.
>>6460473First person, you fucking retard. Can you read?
>>6460325Besides the ancient alien and Illuminati stuff, how accurate is this?
CK2 HIP, it literally has "Historical" in its name.
>>6460535Greek mod is probably Fires of War, pretty good
>>6461391yeah, that's the one. weird that two of the best mods for warband aren't on the workshop.
>>6461253Armor, weapons are fucking shit. They literally abandoned the accuracy of the first game for stylized bullshit.Scenery was ok.AssCreed II's Rome was phenomenal.
>>6460584Empire total war civil war mod
>>6460369>Alien CrossfireWhile I get you think the Free Drones represent you better than the Human Hive equivalent dictatorships that *somehow* come about every time a revolution happens, the Ayys make multiplayer shit, and none of the factions are as well written as the vanilla ones.
>>6460337fps multiplayer games are never going to be historically accurate, its simply not possible with the medium.
>>6461034decently fun, players tend to listen to the officers and stick together in lines. No solo rambo 360 noscope shit.
>>6460656It's on steam now, and there's almost always at least one server with over 100 people.
>>6460823Can't show accurate portrayals of communism now, can we?
>>6460584darkest of days if u want to be completely disappointed
>>6461617it definitely is possible to be accurate with uniforms and weapons but most devs these days don't care
>holdfast: nations at war for napoleonic era line battle combat
>>6460325Day of Infamy is a fun WW2 FPS from the Insurgency people.
>>6463273do people still play that? game seemed dead but I quit before they added krauts. The naval stuff was actually more interesting to me but it was very buggy and had even less people playing it
Battlefield 5Assassin’s Creed Call of Duty WW2
>>6463287He said emphasize historical accuracy, anon
>>6460325COD World at War and COD 2 unironically. The shooting, either intentionally or not, isn't as accurate as it is in other titles and both try and focus on aspects of the war that aren't as touched upon, with the exception of Stalingrad and D- Day.
COD World at War is really good https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q2w9QNNfEeU&t=635
>>6460325You can't fight from horseback in Kingdom Come.
>>6464170Yes you can
>>6463939https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wIKk6bUSE3wThat beat at 1:00 had me forever sold
>>6461253Apparently a college professor used the game to show off how the cities would have looked so that at least seems to be very accurate.
>>6464170Of course you can, it's just usually better to dismount and fight on foot (like in real life)
>>6460325CMANO and its DLCs desu. It's so accurate it's used by actual defense professionals and war colleges.
>>6465026unless you cheese the game using horse archery and kiting bandits around like its some sort of mmo.
>>6465039>first person games
>>6465057It never seemed worth the effort. I just dismount, stick an arrow in whoever is closest and then kill them all with a mace.
>>6465061Pretend you're ATC
>>6465057Horse archery is actually pretty fun, if you shoot in gallop instead of stopping.
>>6460367>tannenberg for 3 dollarsFuck oath, if its on sale I'll get a four pack for my mates
>>6460369>Deux Ex>/leftypol/Quit culturally appropriating, communist swine. Deux Ex teaches us to>distrust the government>distrust corporations involved with the government
>>6465608>being an anti government revolutionary is necessarily anti communist
>>6465608>distrust the capitalist government>distrust corporations involved with the governmentThat's pretty red though.
>>6460933It's like an alt right podcast as a videogame. I love it.
>>6460575damn that really looks like a piece of bacon
>>6460455I enjoy playing with my reg, it's pretty casual and line battles are good fun.
Name a better flight sim than IL-2 1946 with BAT mod>you can't
>>6466290and i don't want to, flight sims are boring
>>6460325Darkest of days
>>6466309>just thought I'd let you know I don't want to take part in your discussion Okay thank you
>>6460369You """people""" are fucking mental. Get help.
>>6460455/threadFuck cringy little kiddies like >>6460527 who don't know how to play it.
>>6466383i really don't know what's worse, /pol/ or lefty/pol/. i'm tending towards /pol/ though, they are the guys who party when a mentally disturbed man shoots 50 people who didn't actively do anything wrong
>>6466390You're an intelligent young man, keep it up.
>>6466389>who don't know how to play it.he's got a point though, sieges really are the fucking cancer of the game. no matter what mod, no matter if it's a perfect model of krak de chevalier or minas tirith, sieges always fucking suck.and it's almost exploitable. send in weaker units first to open a corridor, then send your heavily armored expensive units to kill everyone. simple win 100% of times
>>6466393How exactly hierarchy incentivize anyone? Why would I work harder in pseudo-caste system if I can be sure that I will always above say black people and will always be below 1% of rich bastards who can out-money all effort you made in your life combined?
>>6460369Some of them actually okay.
>>6466390I enjoy /pol/'s sense of humour
>>6466406>Hierarchy is being stuck in one place>Upwards mobility is impossible, only sideways!Read some recent History my man.
Verdun/Tannenberg is being shilled here and on/k/. This thread is an ad. Both games are absolute shit and so is RO2 and its (LOL) paid DLC. RO2 is absolute garbage compared to its predecessor (which is inexpensive and has free mods that are passionately made and amazing). Verdun is a piece of shit made in Unity with an extremely small player count, glitchy everything, small player size per map, and small maps. Same as RO2 almost.Fuck off.
>>6460563You are aware that everyone who supports capitalism is a liberal, right? It's the lack of knowledge from liberals calling democrats (centrists bordering on fascists) whilst being liberals themselves that is lacking any sort of awareness.He knew what he was doing.
>>6466418>extremely small player count, glitchy everything, small player size per map, and small mapsand that's the reason i was shilling tannenberg here and on /k/, i even said it in the OP on /k/. i was really pleasantly surprised by it. i would never have bought it if it wasn't on sale and i wasn't bored, but i did and it is fucking great. it's like they actually learned from the meh game that Verdun was. i dropped Verdun after 2h of playtime. i bought tannenberg 2 days ago and already have 7h. it's a really good game that deserves more players. you should look into it, especially if you thought ro2 was arcady crap compared to ro1.
>>6466434The only thing you deserve is to be hanged, marketing scum. Fuck off.
>"""realistic""" MP only shootersName a more boring genre with more tryhard sperg autists
>>6466452>marketing scumi found a really good game that i enjoy that only has around 100-200 players online at a time. and i'd love to have more people play it. that makes me marketing scum that deserves to be hanged? take your fucking meds
>>6466471It has so few players because it's dogshit just like Verdun. The only good WW1 FPS is the free Ace of Spaces. The one that when you'd look down you'd vomit because of the motion sickness you get. You are marketing a game. Doing it FOR FREE (or not, I don't know or care because either way is disgusting). Shoot yourself unless you're a noguns homocopter in which case hang yourself.
>>6466482maybe play it and see for yourself you fucking idiot. you can't deny that verdun had a lot of potential that was wasted. they learned from that, that's why i was pleasantly surprised. to repeat it for the 5th time. and many people, like me, just didn't like verdun and thought tannenberg would be just as shit. that's why there's not more people trying it. but it's not, and if you had any hopes in verdun and been disapointed, you really should give tannenberg a try.
>>6466498>just buy our game, pleaaase!lmao, fucking kill yourself
>>6466501>lmaoat least you displayed your retard badge openly this time. who gives a fuck about idiots like you.
>>6466498Neck yourself, shillshit. Piece of marketing fucking trash. All marketers should be forced from their homes and immolated.
>>6466504who gives a fuck about your shit game lmao
>>6466390When did /pol/ laugh at the paris nightclub massacre?
>>6466517judging from the "just bought it and liked it" posts quite a few. my work is done
>>6460325Yeah I was going to say Kingdom Come: Deliverance, it's the first one that comes to mind, since the whole point of that game is to try and be as historically accurate as possible.>>6460369Daily reminder that communism must be crushed and commies will be sentenced to death.>>6460584That's made me think, it's weird there aren't any big games about the American Civil War. I'm British but I studied it for A Level (equivalent of high school diploma I guess). Maybe such a game hasn't been made because it would alienate an international audience, while games made about WWII or WWI are immediately relatable to people across the globe, since basically every country was tied up in those wars.
>>6466670i liked kingdome come and spent like 50h in it but never finished, at some point i was annoyed by the bad performance of my laptop. did you play any of the DLC? is it any good? thought about getting it last sale but decided against it
>>6460584get Ultimate General: Civil War. If you've played any gunpowder Total Wars it'll be at once familiar and in many ways a big improvement (path drawing, for instance)if you get deep into that one, probably try Scourge of War Gettysburg because some smartypants who's too good for a pretty game is already typing out a dismissive response to that effect
>>6461093The title could apply to either side because both generally thought they were fighting over "rights". That's probably why they picked itRunner-up titles:>Rage of Men>Battle of Differences>Fight of Guns>Victory Defeat: Gold
>>6466723I've not played the game at all. I don't even have a current gen console or a computer capable of running it. Still rocking the 360 over here. But I just thought it looked like a pretty cool game. Don't know if I would buy it even if I did have an Xbox One though because it looks like the sort of game that requires a lot of time and investment.
>>6466787>requires a lot of time and investmentyup. lots of micromanagement. and the fighting system is a bitch to get good at again once you haven't played for a while. it's a really nice medieval experience though.and it does a great job of showing how much the lives of people were impacted by something that in the end was just a small footnote in history.
>>6466603>he thinks his samefagging fools anyone
>>6466802Of all the people visiting these boards, less than 10% actually post something. The vast majority just lurks. You can be sure that a lot of people recently checked out Tannenberg because of these threads. And they're right to do so, it's worth it.
>>6460550Historical mod quality really varies. AD1257 is probably the nicest, biggest free one. You'll probably be occupied with that for a while. There are a number of paid mods that people bitch about paying for, but some are worth a few bucks on sale. As it is most big conversion mods are made for gay fantasy stuff.Viking Conquest (Covers British Isles)With Fire & Sword (Poland vs. Everybody, guns & grenades)Gloria Sinica: Han Xiongnu Wars (Mulan pretty much)In any case I wouldn't even bother with vanilla, unless you're really interested in a no-magic fantasy world that is literally a note-for-note knock-off of the real world on a fake map. I have no idea what they were thinking except that they thought real-world geography would make the game world too big. AD1257 is indeed big
>>6460367Where is it $3?
>>6466764yes yes the famous place got burnt, very clever>24 yearscan't possibly be THAT great
>>6466837>AD1257 FUCKING YESIt's probably my most favorite mod for any game, ever. Better than Nehrim/Enderal, better than third age, it's just so fucking glorious. I've never seen anyone else appreciating it on here, nice. Crushing the Welsh as an English lord, fighting the dirty shoeless archers in their swamps, and then asking your king for permission to go to the holy land, travelling over sea for weeks, stopping by in sicily to get supplies, and then joining a crusader order to hunt Mamluks in the sunny deserts of Egypt with your army of crusader knights just to return to England after months with many riches and a nice arabic horse, THAT is fucking glory. Or joining the mongol hordes and fighting the Rus. I just fucking love it so much.And the economic way is great, too. Slowly building your own villages and castles, it's just so fucking great
>>64668493€, 6€, who gives a fuck, it's cheap as dirt and a great game
>>6466821>You can be sure that a lot of people recently checked out Tannenberg because of these threadscitation needed
>>6466884several people posted that they bought it, and others were angry that the sale was over. now multiply that by the amount of people that lurk but don't post. also take a look at the tannenberg playercount, the number of players more than doubled over the sale.
I might take up shilling for Tannenberg too if it pissed off that annoying borderline mental case cunt from /k/ who is still shittershattered over Red Orchestra 2 a whole eight years on.
>>6466888It's more than doubled over each of the recent sales; there's been a couple in the past months since Tannenberg left EA. And that's a good thingabsolutely nothing wrong with word-of-mouth
>>6466723DLC is pretty weak which is a shame because I loved the base game. Wait for a 75% off or more sale before you purchase DLC, really isn't worth it. They still haven't met all their stretch goals. Or just pirate.
>>6466755How does Ultimate General: Gettysburg compare to UG:Civil War?
If you buy Rising Storm 2 Vietnam, you get to play a Cold War multiplayer shooter and there's also a mod with the Finnish winter war.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gbrFlL2Fw-c
>>6467207it'll still be weeks until that mod is released.and RS2 is really fun, but it's way too arcady compared to RO2, or hell, RO1.
>>6467168Haven't really played Gettysburg except to taste it. UG:CW is more nicely made and has a whole shitload more stuff going on. Create your own army out of brigades, carry experience over between main and optional battles in a "dynamic campaign", reinforce and arm them with a wide variety of period equipment. Gettysburg is just about the tactics. I'm pretty sure it's quite good in its own right but there's shitloads of games going back decades that cover Gettysburg. On the other hand there's no other game I know that does what UG:CW does.I'd recommend UG:CW because it's there's just more to it in terms of value and replay. If you like it, Scourge of War is supposed to be an excellent and very historical series for a focused look at specific battles like Gettysburg. But if Gettysburg goes on sale for cheap or something then by all means go for it
>>6460369>all of them made in capitalist societies, with capitalist means, for capitalist profit.
>>6467242I already have UG:Gettysburg, picked it up in a sale long ago but haven't gotten around to playing it yet. Will keep an eye on UG:CW. Do Matrix games ever go on sale? Scourge Gettysburg isn't on Steam or gog
>>6467264>Do Matrix games ever go on sale?Almost never and if they do they're small discounts iirc. Occasionally through other retailers when there's Slitherine sales. Fanatical has a small selection that go on sale fairly often.
>>6467288Similar to HPS and John Tiller then. Excellent sims at a premium price.
