    I'll never understand why video games are made of World War 2 but not World War 1.

    It was mostly trench warfare where the men were slaughtered. Every so often the allies would send a couple thousand men to their imminent deaths by sending them "over the top" the Germans just waited for this and mowed everyone down with machine gun fire. Rinse and repeat.

    There were however secret tunnel operations that took well over a year to complete in which the allies dug under the German positions and placed tonnes and tonnes of explosives and blew the lot up. Some of the craters exist to this day and can be seen from the air.

    They could still make a first or third person shooter about World War 1. They could have you dunk behind trenches as cover and have gun fights in the tunnels.

    If I were a new developer for the PS4 or multi platform dev, that's a game I would make and I would make a lot of money off of it because World War 1 games are rare.

    Any way, will let you get back on topic.

    Not only that but WW2 had more historical meaning behind it for the US. But for the most part you are correct

    That is a pretty incredible picture. Shows the massive destruction and evil that happened during that world war and the other.

    WW1 is very interesting to me. Not sure why, though. I'm just fascinated with the 1910s-1920s.

    Elaboration required.
    "The biggest adversary in our life is ourselves. We are what we are, in a sense, because of the dominating thoughts we allow to gather in our head. All concepts of self-improvement, all actions and paths we take, relate solely to our abstract image of ourselves. Life is limited only by how we really see ourselves and feel about our being. A great deal of pure self-knowledge and inner understanding allows us to lay an all-important foundation for the structure of our life from which we can perceive and take the right avenues.
