I am having a hard time tracking down games with this theme. I have played games from the medieval European perspective, from the greek perspective even the roman perspective, mostly a western perspective on history. Where is the game that I can play as Cyrus or Darius or Xerxes do they not count? How about some games about Vikings that is more factual than mythological? I like total war shogun, it is a nice change of pace but, I really hope the next total war is based on persia around 500-300bce. I think that would be great. To see the rise of one of the most powerful civilizations ever. I think I am tired of the same ol thing being repackaged, I get it, the westerners won the wars and conquered the lands, can we at least see the civilizations weren't as lucky?is it impossible to make a game where the protagonist is not a westerner? Assassins creed pulled it off but quickly went to the same old setting. I would really enjoy visiting Babylon in 500bc, maybe Persepolis, maybe even Bactria and Susa. I thick there is a huge chunk of history being ignored in games. Aren't games sop pose to take us places we haven't been to, gameplay is one thing but setting and culture can add so much to overall game experience. Who else here thinks that maybe, just maybe some game about something other than future warfare can be made? I have always enjoyed games that transport me through time to a place no one Will ever see again. Last time I checked the video game industry is no. 1 in entertainment, let's stretch that muscle and break the mold. How about, call of duty: rise of Cyrus. I'm sure they could make spears and rocks and sword play fun. Have 100,000 vs 100,000 online multiplayer( I know pipe dream).

Am I going

Also do I need my flame suit?
