    I know the Vietnam war has been in far more games than any of the conflicts featured here but a truly open and next gen game set in a sprawling vietnam, fearing dynamic non-scripted ambushes by the vietcong and being able to utilize a truly next gen lighting system for the jungles, now that is a virtual war I would take part in.

    Mmm... I can almost taste it.

    I think mgs5 The Phantom Pain will have some scenes set in the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan if going by one of the trailers is anything to go by. Metal Gear games generally provide a decent context and history to the conflicts the games are set during by ways of optional codec conversations. (And overly long cutscenes) :-)

    I think the Lebanese Civil War would make a great game. You have Shia Muslim, Sunni Muslim, Druze, and Christian militias all vying for power and constantly shifting alliances. It's a fairly recent war so you won't have the problem of trying to make old guns feel exciting. I think it could really educate Americans about the conflict in the Middle East teach us how simmering tensions could be ignited by even the smallest amount of bloodshed. Sadly, much like the Spanish Civil War is considered a precursor to WWII, I think the Lebanese Civil War was a precursor to the Syrian Civil War that is now responsible for so many deaths. Demagogues like Hassan Nasrallah and Saudi clerics are still stoking sectarianism in countries where Sunni/Shia intermarriage was common only a century ago

    I would like all of these really. I'd also suggest the Hundred Years War and the first World War. It's kind of surprising that we haven't had really anything about that. The Russo-Japanese War would be really interesting as well considering how forgotten that war is by the general public.

    The only one of these I actually know a significant deal about is the winter war and what I know tells me it wouldn't make a very good game. The war was very interesting but I believe that if the hypothetical game stuck closely to the source material it would probably fall flat.

    All of these would be great, but I especially liked the Winter War and Warsaw Uprising. Although, like you mentioned, a game set in Warsaw would be depressing as fuck.

    The Warsaw Uprising sounds like a unique idea, I like it. If this a list of bloodiest wars, then how about the Battle of Antietam form the U.S. Civil War.

    So happy to see the Mexican revolution in this list, and so very well summed up too. The whole thing was a clusterfuck in which there were no true winners, much less the people, but it would definitely make for an interesting "mercenaries" style of game. Specially if it allows you to join Pancho Villa's raid of the USA. Making him one of the few foreigners to get away with invading and attacking US soil and live to brag about it ;)

    The only problem when tackling this chapter of Mexican history is how disjointed the most relevant events were, with factions making and breaking alliances, the formation and introduction of several new factions. I mean like a story it'll be tricky were to focus the perspective.
