    Wow, that sucks for German game makers and pretty much any gamer in Germany. What a ridiculous law.

    That's what I thought. They're just pussyhurt because one of the most successful videogame genres ever is centered around killin some krauts.

    I totally agree. As much as I love killing Nazis in those games, I still love being them even more, because of their weapons. I'm also German.

    If they had their version of the Garand and it was general issue as well as a good supply of gasoline and more than enough vehicles, I believe that they could have won the war.

    If Hitler wasn't a fucking insane methhead and didn't decide to invade the Soviet Union in the middle of fucking winter when he already had his hands plenty full with the rest of Europe, they could have won the war too.

    As Alpheus said if Hitler wasn't an idiot and didnt invade Russia they may of had a chance. Should of taken out Britain before going after Russia.

    If Hitler let his Generals run the war and not focused on bombing London and shit, kept to the military targets w/o having to worry about the E. Front the Germans could of knocked Britain out of the war by either forcing the Brits to sue for peace after their military and industrial capabilities were bombed to nothing or by landing troops on the island.
