''Medal of Honor'' is a series of {{First Person Shooter}}s primarily set in WorldWarII, and is probably the seminal title of this particular genre. Named after the United States' [[BlingOfWar highest military decoration]]. [=MoH=] is known for a [[WillingSuspensionOfDisbelief deep level of immersion]], achieved by subjecting its design staff to actual military training, akin to the experiences of its inspiration, ''SavingPrivateRyan''. Creator/StevenSpielberg served as director and producer of the first title.

** Frontline and Allied Assault also recreated the Normandy landing from ''SavingPrivateRyan''. Reviews picked up on this and treated it as evidence of this being the game of the film, and is undoubtably the TropeCodifier for WWII games.

* AMFMCharacterization: In the first mission, the PlayerCharacter and a bearded man in local garb are driving through an Afghan village listening to a local radio station. The bearded man complains about your choice of music and shuts the stereo off, revealing both of you to be Americans in disguise.

Added DiffLines:

* BrandX: Averted in the two recent games taking place in modern times. In keeping with the game's overall dedication to authenticity, all the equipment seen in the game is branded correctly, right down to the watches worn by the player characters (which can clearly be seen marked as Suunto or G-Shock).

*** This is true to history, US military training stipulated emptying the magazine rather than trying to manually eject the clip and replace it with a new one, or topping off the half-used clip with loose ammo.
* OneManArmy: In the first game, very specifically done as an agent of the OSS. You stop a prototype rail gun, sink a prototype U-Boat, kill Hitler's favorite colonel and destroy his mustard gas facility-slash-fortress, and then wreck his rocket facility.

to:

*** This is not true and most likely done to history, US military training stipulated emptying either balance out bolt-actions in multiplayer or because the magazine rather than trying game engine could only handle 1 reload animation per gun. Or both. The M1 can easily be reloaded mid-clip, you just have to manually eject the clip and replace it with a new one, or topping off the half-used clip with loose ammo.
be careful to not get "Garand Thumb" when doing it.

Added DiffLines:

* NonIndicativeName: Most of ''Medal of Honor: Frontline'' actually doesn't take place at the front lines of the battlefield. The player spends the bulk of the game as an OSS operative (not a frontline soldier) doing covert missions behind enemy lines, and stealth comes into play in several levels.

* In ''Medal of Honor'', you often play as a pivotal American frontline soldier in a particular theater of battle. Though MoreDakka is generously provided, you often fight alone (main exceptions being ''Pacific Assault'' were you control a team of at least three allies, ''Airborne'' where you always have a few paratroopers on your side, although apparently they can run out, and the 2010 game, where most missions find you with at least 1 companion). In any case, most of the action serves to drive you from one iconic action scene to another. The series is noted for great realism and respect for real soldiers in real wars.

** The manor house level in ''Frontline'' has an EvilChef who appears to do a [[TheMuppetShow Swedish Chef]] impression.
** Frontline and Allied Assault also recreated the Normandy landing from SavingPrivateRyan. Reviews picked up on this and treated it as evidence of this being the game of the film, and is undoubtably the TropeCodifier for WWII games.

* MoralGuardians: Caused quite a flap that nearly kept the reboot from being released when it was revealed that in multiplayer you'd get to play as the Taliban. The military went as far as to ban its sale in any military compounds, and eventually the developers chickened out and just copied ''ModernWarfare'' by changing the name to "[=OpFor=]" (short for 'opposition force').
