A note should be added if the war is optional or only small part of the depicted events.

This includes a civilian trying to escape a war without engaging in it in any manner, a soldier working for one side, an agent for another, and so forth. However, if there's a war going on but it has little to no effect on what the player does, then it should be treated only as background fluff and not tagged.

Editors!!! Do NOT link specific wars directly to this, instead link them to wars.

The first War video game was released in 1953.

SSI, Ubisoft and Electronic Arts published most of these games.
