I would enjoy a game where you actually had to face the impossible odds against you as Cortes, and build up enough strength to finally collapse the empire.
Would be fun.

On this topic; Paris Commune game
As long as there's a Turkish campaign too.
>This, but with Malta
Get in here CA

How about we add a twist, the "reinforcements" the Venetians were "going to send" actually arrive along with, lets be honest, godtier navy and helped out the Romans? Maybe that Might even out the fight.

Also malta would also be bae af desu

The Studio that brought you S.T.A.L.K.E.R presents: Hell on Earth: Eastern Front, 1942
Something in the vein as the Koei Warriors series, but instead of having anime-style super exaggerated portrayals of historical figures from Three Kingdoms period China or Sengoku period, have similarly styled historical figures from World War II.

So Josef Mengele being a mad scientist figure wielding a giant scalpel mowing down tons of Jews, Hirohito being a super honourable katana user massacring loads of Chinese at Nanjing, Paul Tibbets in a nuclear powered robotic exoskeleton called Enola Gay, Mussolini as a stereotypical Italian ladies man, Winston Churchill as a massive John Bull type brawler chomping in cigars.
>implying everyone wouldn't play as a comfy Einsatzgruppen officer
>implying they would let you play nazi soldiers
RPG set in Classical Greece, Post-Persian War, Pre-Peloponnesian War
Paradox grand strategy, but more complex.
Pops, a good economy, deep politics, shit to do other than blob, etc.
Op go look up expeditions conquistador.

Mount & Blade set in the Western Balkans in the 14th Century, with RPG & building mechanics.

I just want to be able to go hunting, mine ore, forge a blade, build a fort, and then fight hordes of invading Saracens. That's all I want.
You run a kingdom like a Paradox game but you do it by proxy of your advisers and generals. They'e AI controlled and tend to be retarded, although you can choose different people and they AI behavior is different based on their attributes. You can lead armies in person but it hands over the entire kingdom to another retarded adviser while you're away. The whole game is just you trying to juggle these retards who have radically different personalities and each of them is retarded in their own unique way. No matter what, your monarch always dies with the succession uncertain, the kingdom in a precarious position economically and militarily, and the cycle repeats itself with the new king
This, my life needs historical RPGs. Why are there so few, are they particularly expensive to produce or something?
Naval Action/Age of Pirates, but all your sailors are meticulously rendered and when you give an order they physically carry it out. None of this psychic sail setting business, I wanna see a nigga climb up there and tie that shit. Hell, I wanna zoom in on him and hear his dumbass conversation about how he saw a mermaid once and how he's mad about the half rations I put everyone on.
I want to know my crew, get attached to them and then get sad when a heavy wave knocks five of them overboard.
American Civil War strategy game.

Think Ultimate General Gettysburg, but a whole campaign. Cities and Governance is automatic, but you control armies. You are given regiments by the AI government, which you can form into brigades, divisions, corps, and armies. You can assign commanders and artillery batteries as well. Army management is complicated and requires a careful balance of available forage and logistics capacity, number of troops, sickness and desertion, etc. There is also extensive fog-of-war and cavalry are needed to determine enemy positions etc.

Battles can play out over several days and through several phases. The terrain is also based on historical elevation map survey data and is as close to historically accurate for the ground as possible. Units generally appear as brigades and batteries in battles, and have morale bonuses when fighting as a division or corp.

Basically, an incredibly in-depth and complicated TW that focuses on realism as much as possible.
This, but with the added caveat that it doesn't shoehorn you towards the major battles, instead allowing the game to naturally form its own turning points and major milestones. If you want to divert all your dudes to Gettysburg for a big battle, so be it, but the biggest battle of the war could be the Battle of DC or Nashville or something in your game.
>Your imaginary historical game
Just realize a historical version of Mount & Blade with god tier gameplay and an actual storyline.

Also Mehmet II would like a word
>Not playing as a Partisan
An MMO similar to elite dangerous, but instead of in space, you're some guy in the american west. You can become a merchant, bounty hunter, bandit, hunter, lawman, whatever. Either that or something similar in the golden age of piracy.
