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
>>
>>6460325
Verdun/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
>>
>>6460325
War of Rights is extremely accurate. Otherwise I can't think of any truly accurate games.
>>
>>6460337
might 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.

Should I get tannenberg for 3 dollars? I liked Verdun but nobody plays it anymore

Dwarf 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.

>>6460367
absolutely. 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.

Red orchestra series, rising storm 2. Can't think of anything else atm.

mount and blade warband
there'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.
>>
>>6460455
I was never able to really enjoy that game because battles are pure trash, zero tactics and sieges are pure cringe

there'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.

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.

You 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.

>extremely small player count, glitchy everything, small player size per map, and small maps

and 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.

It 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.
>>
>>6466482
maybe 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.

That'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.

get 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

I'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 investment
yup. 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.

Of 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.
>>
>>6460550
Historical 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

FUCKING YES

It'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

several 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.

It'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 thing

Haven'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

Similar to HPS and John Tiller then. Excellent sims at a premium price.
