Would you play a COD-esque game as the Axis forces in WWII?

I'm neither German, Italian, or Japanese, but i'd find it interesting to have an axis campaign. I know in the early COD multiplayer games you could play as the axis, but there was never a campaign...

If it had a nice single-player campaign, then sure. I'm thinking of the old WWII-based Call of Duties. I'd be down with that.

I personally would like a German campaign for things like the invasion of France or the Eastern Front.

Especially with Treyarch's thing about forming their own version of history. You could do a game and play as a German soldier and have it not be totally evil or something. Cuz let's face it, the Soviets weren't any better, and often times down right worse.

Italian....AHAHAHAHA, no man. C'mon.

Japanese...eh, boring. No real redeeming qualities of IJA and most of their ground actions were in China again peseants armed with medieval weaponry, more or less. Otherwise it would be, "Hey let's hide out in this cave while thousands of Marines land and wait to get cooked with a flamethrower." Military geniuses the Japanese command was not.

Maybe. It sounds like if it's handled well it could be an interesting take on war shooters, but I'm a bit worried about the content- the Axis Powers did some rotten s*** in WWII. Even if it's just a video game, I don't know how comfortable I'd be hunting down fugitive Jews or raping and pillaging innocent Korean villages.

Where's the "If the Nazis are zombies and you have to eat brains to recover life" option?

so will it show the Holocaust or the Rape of Nanking. The Axis were just disgusting creatures and should have been destroyed completely

Please tell me you're not of the nation that decided it'd be chipper to blink out the lives of over a hundred thousand japanese military and civilians, in one blinding flash.

I just don't go around calling one side of a war "disgusting creatures", when both are guilty of atrocities.
