How video games portray WWII Many people these days play games such as Call of Duty and Medal of Honour. The fact behind these games can often be seen as ‘untrue’ and ‘unrealistic’ compared to real war. Whilst there is some historical fact inside the games, the games do not show how life was really like during the war. These games may also persuade people of a young age to join the army and go to war, thinking its all ‘fun and games’, when there is much more to it than just ‘shooting’ people.
Accuracy behind Video Games The history and factual knowledge behind Video games is often misleading. The companies that make these games often adjust the story's and game play, to make money and appeal to a younger audience. For example, When comparing Call of Duty and Medal of Honour to the same scene, the storyline is different in both games.
