Two trailers came out today for two different war games. I was first linked off to the one for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, which contained everything you might imagine. Buff guys. Power fantasy. Cool tech. Dazzling explosions.
The next trailer was for a game of a more somber nature, a game about the people caught in the aftermath of those explosions, left in the wake of soldiers with cool tech, none of which seem that cool anymore.
This War of Mine has been called the war game that video games need. The existence of This War of Mine does not negate the existence of Call of Duty, but it is cool to see the unexplored side of an otherwise heavily overused subject in games, and to see it handled so gracefully.
