Vietnam Games
Im am dismayed by all the bad games that keep coming from the gaming complex; especially the last three or four years. Everyone wants to make war games rather old or futuristic and that's VERY cool with me. What is NOT cool with me is that most war games and FPS just are not doing much innovative outside of graphics-it's like the fun dried up in the late 1990's (I've been a PC gamer since Commadore64). Juding by most reviews I've been reading over at sites like PC Gamer, I'm not the only one who feels this way.

Onto the main talking point: Vietnam games.

What happened to the fun Nam games??? The last one with any flavor of cool was Vietcong...and that war around 2002 If I remember correctly. Anyone know of any Nam games announced? I figured some dev would want to try to score some fun in the Jungle with all this talk of 'Next Gen' hardware...but we shall see I guess.

A nam game rallying on the GHOUL2 hit system using a new engine would probably be a smash hit.

See you in the (next good) Jungle settings.

Vietcong in 2002, was an amazing game.

I miss that time period.

Vietcong 2, Battlefield Vietnam, Line of Sight: Vietnam, Made Man and Men of Valor.

LOS and VC2 were meh......same with Men of Valor-which didnt even have a jump function......so far bf vietnam and the Unsung Mod are worthy....still waiting on these damn lazy devs to do something at least sub-standard....

If you're going to blame someone for all the 'bad' games we're getting, then blame the people that keep buying into them. Publishers fund developers to make games that will sell. If you want something different or outside the box, you'll have to turn to the indie developers.

i remember some oldish, pretty violent shooter game named "NAM" or "N.A.M.". With graphics around the level of Doom or so. Might be abandonware.

thats only half of the truth. various kickstarter projects show that even genres that were considered kind of dead (space games for example) still pay off. though it seems the particular example im thinking of (star citizen) is selling for the name affilitated to it (chris roberts) already enough and that it could have been something else as well

N.A.M.!

That was on the old 3d realms engine and you know what? That ♥♥♥♥ was fun too for its time....probably still is. Anyone know of any Nam games (speaking of kickstarters) announced for 2014-15?

Ah yes-on the 3D realms Duke Nukem Engine-I had it too. That was pretty fun.

Science fiction setting allows for more creativity; games set in the near-future or recent past aren't going to be that much different. More SF games please.

MOV had no Jump function-and that ercked me to no end. A soldier in Nam not jumping? Seemed like I was playing a bad version of MOH. Ehh.....The scripted scenes were yawn factor after seeing them over and over again. The MP always yeilded 400+ ping too-and that really turned me off. We need some new ♥♥♥♥ (Nam experience).
