Actually a game in which you play a middle ranking nazi, and balance pleasing hitler with acquiring wealth and paintings for yourself without getting caught up in the Nuremburg trials...sorry I'd like to play that game.

i'd have to double that. it'd be interresting to see these games from both sides in a single player mode.
I'm sure someone can come up with somekind of Valkyre like storyline that most of the world wouldn't trip over.

I'm going to have to triple that(!?).  A world war two game from a Nazi's perspective is a neat idea, and surely the press would have a field day with it, helping along with the marketing.

No, I personally don't mess with Nazi-killing games too much. There's quite a bit of oversaturation there... although I can certainly understand the reason they show up in so many games. The European theatre of WWII was (arguably) the last morally unambiguous Western war, and Nazis the last morally unambiguous enemy force. They can be easily explained as pure evil that you just need to go kill without direct provocation. So yeah, they're basically a gift from the gods of game development.

A game where you play as a Nazi... Sounds interesting, but has the potential to be about 10x more controversial than that Six Days in Fallujah game, and would probably get shot down just as quickly. A Valkyrie-like story might work, as has been mentioned already, but the protagonist would have to be clearly and immediately subversive to the Nazi cause; not even an eventual convert, but a full-blown rebel. I don't think you could get away with even some pro-Nazi flashbacks without getting your game ripped a new one.

I wish someone would make a nazi game where you play as a normal nazi soldier in the style of call of duty (not being a superhero like wolfenstien, having a team with you almost all of the time) and the rest of your team talks during missions and inbetween like normal people rememiscing about there family and the farm they grew up on or whatever. It would be really interesting if one (or more) of your team turns out be a "real" nazi (like a member of the party and actually beleives in hitler extreme ideas) and theres infighting and you have to kill them with allied weapons (from up close and you can see that people in your team dont want to do it since they are friends and countrymen) so they dont get you killed by your superiors. The idea of the whole game is not only to be a good shooter but also to show that german soldiers in WW2 werent all Nazi's but people oppressed by Nazi's or people afraid for their families so they had to sign up. Perhaps there could be a scene where your ordered to kill some jewish people and then you have to shoot them (including aiming and pressing the button) or you get shot by your commanding officer and you die (and for completeness you can shoot your superior officer but you get shot by all the other germans outside).

It will never happen but I can hope.

you wont get a triple A or even double A nazi game. But indie devs could make and online distribute it.
as a 3rd year GD student its an interesting idea. I wouldnt want a shooter as I said I'd prefer to play as a Nazi governor of a town.
