I looked at the Military And Warfare Superindex, and found the glaring absence of a sub-index that listed, well you know, video games. This must be corrected, so let's add at least a dozen or so articles to get this index started.

^ This is an index, not a trope, so People Sit On Chairs doesn't apply to it.

Yes, this should've been clear. This is an index and sub-page of the Military And Warfare Superindex, covering a particular genre and medium that wasn't already listed there. But because these pages are on the Main namespace, they cannot be created without the TLP. I don't understand how this got 3 bombs without explanation.

^ I guess Star Wars games in general will count here.

I think it may depend on the game though. I said battlefront in particular because that involves military factions within star wars that fight against each other. In contrast, a game like Star Wars Episode 1: Racer likely wouldn't fit as well since that is a racing game and doesn't feature anything that is directly related to a military or warfare.

Then again, i suppose you could just like the star wars games that fit into this index.

We will need more hats to get this going.

X Wing (sequels: Tie Fighter, X Wing Vs TIE Fighter, X Wing Alliance

From 1979 to 2001, Strategic Simulations Incorporated created a huge number of military/warfare related computer games. Anyone who wants to go through and list them can find them on The Other Wiki here.

Avalon Hill's Microcomputer Games Inc. division also created a number of wargames, such as B-1 Nuclear Bomber, Midway Campaign, North Atlantic Convoy Raider and Nukewar. A complete list is about 5/6ths of the way down this page.

^ I think it's preferable if we only list video games that have pages on TV Tropes.

This index is looking good. We just need 1 more hat and we're good to go.

Alright, I think this is more than ready now, so I'll launch it immediately.
