Every Video Game Set In WW2

List Rules
Only video games set in World War 2.

The conflict that cost the world more lives than any other war, saw the dropping of not one, but two nuclear bombs on populated cities, and embroiled the planet for the better part of a decade is also one of the most common settings for video games since gaming was developed. World War II was such a massive conflict that it makes sense that players would want to take part in it, and that's why there are tons of WW2 games available for players to enjoy.

One of the best games set during the conflict is Call of Duty, which features ground warfare from the perspective of the troops fighting against the Axis powers across Europe. Other games like Medal of Honor: Vanguard and Anti-Japan War Online explore the Pacific theater in all its gory detail. Because the genre has been around for as long as video games have been in development, there are tons of older arcade games set during WWII as well. You can blow up planes and bomb important targets in games like 1941: Counter Attack or hop into an armored tank in Achtung Panzer: Kharkov 1943.
