It makes no difference what men think of war, said the judge.  War endures.  As well ask men what they think of stone.  War was always here.  Before man was, war waited for him.  The ultimate trade awaiting its ultimate practitioner.  That is the way it was and will be.  That way and not some other way.

If they made nothing but WWII games, I'd be perfectly content.  Hypothetical matchups from alternate history 1980s, asymmetrical US-bashes-some-3rd world guerillas, or minor wars between Upper Bumblescum and outer Kaboomistan hold no appeal for me.

I know it's probably a bit much to ask for historical accuracy in a game about a Russian bear shooting up the Wehrmacht in Stalingrad, but why does he have an AK?!?!  They could have at least used a PPSH model instead...

Or at least a Mosin Nagant!

Oh well, I already drink vodka when I play STALKER - owning another game set in Russia that would require me of partaking in certain Russian spirits while I play couldn't hurt....right? :coolsmiley:

STALKER may be janky as hell, but at least it's a damn good game....... or so my nostalgia tells me  :-\

I never even thought to do shots while playing the Metro games. Noted for next time :)

I freely admit that one of my previous little joys was to boot up CK2 and play as Scotland (Moray) while sipping some Clan MacGreggor.   :-"

I never drink while I'm gaming. I drink BEFORE I game.  :uglystupid2:  And sometimes after.

Drinking during gaming is dangerous.  I knocked over a beer while playing War Thunder and ruined my keyboard.  Now I buy waterproof keyboards!

The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.   Thomas Jefferson

During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.   George Orwell

If you ever find yourself in need of a safe space then you’re probably going to have to stop calling yourself a social justice warrior. You cannot be a warrior and a pansy at the same time.   Mike Adams (RIP Mike)

Given the amount of effort that apparently into each title, I'm surprised there's not more instalments.  You could milk that cow dry.

Bear, Vodka, Kursk.

Bear, Vodka, Crimea.

Bear, Vodka, Budapest.

Bear, Vodka, Konigsberg.

etc, etc....
