    Makes me very uncomfortable to think that Verdum has been made into a game. Shows a lack of respect. :(

    Really? That is quite interesting. I however, would see it as quite the opposite.
    I think that the fact that people make WW1 and WW2 games based on historical battles pays a great amount of respect to the real people who fought in them. Sure, there are games like COD, which glorify war beyond imagination, but games like Verdun and tactical World War games depict war as the hell it really is, and try their best to provide insight on what the war was really like in the perspective of a soldier.
    Just because people enjoy the simulation doesn't mean they praise the real-world hardships the people had to endure, but rather, getting an amateur understanding of their hardships and enjoying their accomplishments.
