I suppose I'm arguing for the sake of arguing, since Hitler only held sway for ~15 years (including the years where the National Socialists werent a major force in German politics), and since the Americans/Allies has an American general as their leader, the Brits have Monty, it makes some sense that the Desert Fox should command the Germans. It just seems that in computer games, theres an attempt to sweep away the nasty bits of the Third Reich for fear of offending - Silent Hunter II never showed a swastica, even though the only side you could play was the Kriegsmarine. But you cant flinch from fascism, because thats one of the ways that it bred in Germany. Glossing over the truth, looking away, that was how the nazis took power - and with computer games you have a large number of young players who only see the surface of the issue. The nazis become a cartoon, two dimensional badguys who only know how to say "schnell!" Sometimes you get the impression that maybe things werent that bad, really. Maybe the nazis werent as bad as they're made to be - and that starts to chip away the reality of how genuinely evil they really were. If you're someone like me, you'll do the research, you'll take a look at the evidence of brutality, and when you go hunting in Call of Duty, you hope to see the twin lightning strike in your crosshairs, you hope to find that black uniform on the business end of your Thompson. How many people do the research, though? I worry that dumbing down nazis makes them merely images on a computer, to be killed or played without concideration that once they were real, once they razed a whole continent and once they tried to obliterate an entire people.
