** ''VideoGame/MedalOfHonorAlliedAssault'' used the maple leaf flag adopted in 1965 to represent the Canadian sector during the Normandy invasion. For accuracy's sake, it should have been the historical red ensign; however, that flag is obscure enough that even some Canadians have never heard of it. This is a fairly frequent issue in WWII and WWI games.

* Gary Grigsby's ''World At War'' series features the Western Allies being grouped together but partially immobilized by "Political Freeze" (meaning that the US is counted as being part of it prior to Pearl and the WA player can use it's industrial capacity but can't actually MOVE anything until the US enters the war- which to be fair isn't that out of wack with what actually happened (save for the inability to- say- take the massive army and navy you've been building to fortify the AMERICAN possessions in the Pacific). In addition, China is united under the KMT banner, [[JustifiedTrope which is probably for the best]] considering that China consists of about 8-9 provinces and is EASILY [[TheLoad the weakest playable nation in the game]], and including Mao and the various warlords would have rendered the Chinese all but unplayable and easy fodder for the Japanese.

** Characters often live their historical deaths either so you can keep playing as them or because they don't have enough generals to flesh out the later stages of the game. Early games would often have Cao Cao, Liu Bei and Sun Jian living through the entire Three Kingdoms Era, as well as completely ignoring anything that happened after the Battle of Wu Zhang Plains.

* ''VideoGame/SengokuBasara''. We could state specific examples, but we'd be here all day. Pretty much all of it is, of course, intentional, unless [[Creator/{{Capcom}} the developers of the series]] ''[[RefugeInAudacity really]]'' [[RefugeInAudacity thought Date Masamune had a motorbike horse]].

** The states where also consolidated back down to thirteen after the the annexation of Canada so you can see why people give it slack about not really having anything to do with the real world.

** Another mission involves recovering an Enigma cypher machine from the German cruiser ''Lützow'', which was abandoned by her crew after taking heavy damage but failed to sink as expected. This is presumably intentional AlternateHistory, as the real ''Lützow'' never entered Kreigsmarine service and was sold unfinished to the Soviet Union in 1939.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/EmpireEarth'' makes the bold decision of playing as the Germans during World Wars 1 and 2. During the second part, there are no references to which political party is running Germany, and it even ends with the successful invasion of Britain (As you might have noticed, Operation Sealion never took off in RealLife).
