So lets play a video game about when millions of people died and let their families see how you disrespect their memory by using it for escapism.

As for alternative histories, that's fine.  That said, the history in video games is not 100% accurate anyway.  Who is your character again? 

Yes, I have and it refers to maintaining story continuity within a work and/or between iterations of a work. 

Or did you meant to say historically accurate?

 

To all:  We trade a lot of accuracy for engagement in video games.  Complaining about unrealistic diversity in a setting while simultaneously accepting regenerative health, carrying 10 guns at once, infinite stamina, etc....

Not accuracy. Coherence.

Inside the story what was the technology that would allow a prostetic woman to fight in the war? Or were did a Katana wielding soldier came to on a shooting conflict?

Where did the regenerative health technology come from?  Where did the infinite stamina come from?  Where did the incredible mobile multi-weapon storage system come from?  What soldiers were trained to use a dozen different types of guns from handguns, to snipers rifles, to submachine guns, to assault rifles, to automatics, to shotguns, to stationary mounted weapons, plus RPGs, flamethrowers, explosives etc...?

We've become so conditioned to ignore those, and many other, blatant disregards for reality. And yet...we're complaining about a katana?

Yes suspension of disbelief is together with it becoming a trend (it wasn't always like that) allow for we to ignore those aspects. GoW basically ignores this and even though you have healing magic your health won't regenerate with time (at least not in the difficult I played).

But please explain to me what does a katana do in a battlefield against RPG launchers?

What does a knife do against them?

So if we have again more white male protagonists in games and stop this female/gay trend, the problem is solved?
Balance is restored to the force?

Are we going to compare weight and praticity of a bayoneta versus a katana? How many times do you see someone running with a knife in a  WW2 battlefield?

Less often than you see somebody running with a katana...

Katanas were actually pretty common. Not being used by the Allied forces or in the European part of the war, but still.

That is because Katana is cultural identity to Japanese, but not really usefull in trench war.

I said knife, not bayonet.

You use knife to cut things, can be useful in the trench... Katana is made to cut people in katana combat no to cut wire or other knife use.
