As in actual american civil war, not some kooky alternate history like Damnation or such right? If so I dont recall that game, at all.

Problem with that is it would be impossible to make into a game that would be even remotely popular. The style of warfare just doesn't work in games. And if you don't use that style of warfare, but let people run around in little deathmatch fights, it'd just devolve into people running around and stabbing each other or shooting at point blank range, rather than using their shoddy ranged weapons.

Having said that, I obviously forgot about the old west. It could be really awesome, if done properly. Shame that's so rare. Don't get me started on how much Red Dead Redemption sucked. The original Call of Juarez was pretty original and awesome, with the sequel being slightly less original, and definitely lacking in some areas, but still definitely a good game. The biggest problem as I see it would be that despite being a western game, it'd still play like a modern one.

Not that CoD wouldn't be fun in an old west setting. Killstreak? Covered wagon with gatling gun! Off-map cannons! Cavalry charge!

No, there was a game, for the 360 I believe, about some of the 'great' battles of the Civil War, I think.  I can't remember what it was called, but yeah, apparently it sucked.

Apparently, they did several.  I'd probably approach any such game as a tactical/strategy game, rather than the FPS style.

*looks through the list* Am I the only one that thinks Call of Jaurez: Bound in blood (a western style fps) doesnt really belong in there?

Well, the intro did take place during the Civil War.

Dude, the South are one of the antagonists >.> trying to start up the war again before it's even cooled off. I think that qualifies.

Lair of the Shadow broker for Mass Effect 2. This is really awesome. If anyone here is a fan of the Mass Effect saga and have not gotten this I jighly recommend it.

Yeah I'm probably getting Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood tomorrow. It actually makes you care about stealth... sometimes.

Regarding all the talk about Civil War games:

What kind of MMO? lol! there are tons of different kinds of free MMOs out there. What is the setting and why is this so special? Or is it another generic DnD style fantasy MMO?

Chinese Mythology is certainly a different concept.

Since it's free, you could always try it out and then write something sell the MMO players here on it.  If it turns out it sucks, all you've wasted is a bit of time.  ('It's free' usually isn't a sufficient reason for most people.  I can get all the horse manure I want for free, up near the hitching post.  Doesn't mean it's worth the effort.)

Actually they're all the same really. It just depends on what varnish you want slathered on top. Even pay to play ones. They're just more of the same but "deeper".

Got tired of FF XIV, Wolfy? I've heard people use a phrase that rhymes with fluster duck when talking about it.

Inkidu, League of Legends is not a "MMORPG", it's a dota style strategy game. Think Age of Empires.

I'm curious to know if anyone here has played FEAR 2. I've tried the demo, and wasn't particularly impressed, but I consider getting it for the sake of, well, the story, I guess? It seems interesting enough for a cheap game.

Ive played all the FEAR games including the various expansion packs. They really arent that great IMO. As cool as the story sounds when you first start it it gets rather cliche very quickly
