civil war that happened, or the civil war that could happen? LOL

civil war where, when, why? Tongue

but logic tells me you mean the US civil war...
To which I'd go with probably not for me. Granted, back in middleschool, early high school I had a huge interest in civil war history, but wouldn't be too much into a game genre on it. Then again, I'm not much for the WW2 era either. Regardless, I think it could be executed properly, and well done. Would be something fresh for people. Both a shooter and RTS would work for sure.

Some of you shall be missed though! I think you few know who you are Smile
A few of you are actually on my PSN list at that! Cool

It's probably a little trickier to do than, say, the second world war. Obviously Nazis = Bad is a fairly safe path to take but I'm not sure you could really get away with making one side the enemy in the civil war, at least in typical video game terms. It would possibly work with a developer who could handle it sensibly and sensitively, but not as something whipped up quick for an annual franchise.

Keeping it fairly personal could work, making it less about the conflict overall and about one man's perspective (kind of a Cold Mountain sort of angle, perhaps), maybe with a brother fighting for the other side and so on. You could humanise it without completely vilifying one side or the other.

If you're talking about the Marvel Civil War, however, then that removes many of those reservations.

US Civil War.

Yeah.

In my breif search of civil war games i came across one that let you choose the side you wanted to fight for.

I think, if done right, it would be a very unique shooter/game in general.

Having a two part story mode where you can play for either side would be interesting. What gameplay style would be best? My default thought was FPS but I think a 3PS style would work.

Look on the bright side, atleast since it's the US civil war, there wouldn't be any complaints like those that Resident Evil 5 got! lol, omg! Black people in Africa?! Get out! White people in the US civil war!? No wai!

I think it could be done, although, 'choose the side you wanted to fight for' ... That's where Benny is right about a problem. It pokes at a sensitive spot that even with logic people bitch people. That would most definately, absolutely, no questions asked, cause problems. And that would be a problem for multiplayer.

I played a game recently on the 360 like Dynasty Warriors but it featured the French and English and you could choose which side to fight for. The idea was interesting but the execution wasn't overwhelmingly great.
