The Escapist Goes to War

November 3rd, 2009 by Troy Goodfellow · 2 Comments · Escapist

This week’s issue of The Escapist is dedicated to the idea of war, and the articles are generally interesting. Greg Tito’s “history of wargaming” doesn’t really add anything new or interesting to the already large library on this topic but Shawn Williams article on the impact of video game soldiering to real war is quite good.

The two stand-out articles are Rob Zacny’s ode to Silent Hunter III, explaining how it is a game that never hides the inevitability of defeat and Jim Rossignol’s piece on Men of War, which recently got an expansion and I still haven’t played.
