TITLE

‘You Provide the Pixels and I’ll Provide the War’ — Computer Games, Cinema and Narrative

ABSTRACT

Chapter 1 deals with the narrative and stories of First World War games. Games focused on the Second World War have long been tightly linked to cinematic portrayals to the extent that notable Second World War games have recreated specific scenes and films. There is less of a history of ‘blockbuster’ films for the First World War upon which games could draw even if they wanted to. This chapter seeks to examine the roots of the stories that appear in First World War games but also to highlight those games which have no discernible story and evaluate whether this is a result of the First World War aspect of the game or if it is instead indicative of the genre. Some games that appear to be First World War-focused are not really at all whilst others incorporate competing elements of its popular image to build a recognisable scenario.
