Gee, I wonder why would that be?

You think americans would like a game on one of the many wars they LOST?


Many? If by many you mean two, and the latter is debatable, sure.

It's not a serious WWII game, so I don't see the problem with it.
I have more of an issue with more serious WWII games, because they display all German soldiers as douche-bags, whereas in reality about half of them (if not more) did not approve of the war at all, and only fought because not to fight meant being arrested or killed by the SS.
There is a true story where during X-mas time, the German soldiers and American troops were facing off during winter, but at Christmas eve they both put out their white-flags to trade coffee, cigarettes, and other goods in order to celebrate the Holiday.
It was actually the higher-ups that were the jerks. Kinda like politics today.

BTW
While I was born in the United States, I have German ancestry. My grandfather drove a tank for the German Army during WWII. But he spent most of the time in a prison camp, because he refused to fight against the Allied troops. In his views, Hitler was a maniac and not worth serving under. He was only let out close to the end of the war and grabbed his wife and kids (my mother) and left Germany for good. He initially went to Canada, but eventually settled in the US. He was always a proud immigrant to be in America and celebrated the US and the freedom it offered, though he would be rolling around in his grave to see what a socialist/fascist nation the US is quickly becoming.

German version has all the Nazi imagery removed.
They're pissed they aren't killing Nazis?

I really hope most Germans hate Nazis just as much as the rest of us.


I'm sure they do. But if there was a game in which American slave traders were the main enemy and we had to kill them all, I'm sure some Americans would be upset.


Django Ungamed? I'd play it

^ It might have been X-mas day, I can't remember, but it was reported as factual, and the program I watched trodded out some WWII vets that admitted it and said that it actually happened.

Never heard of the football thing...though I don't see why, since the American idea of football is completely different than the German view. In Germany, football is actually soccer.
My grandfather personally hated the American version of football. But he loved to watch soccer. And when he did, he made kept reminding me how it was the "real" football.
So you have different views of what football is. Did they play soccer, or the American version of football ?
