Title: Hello from Atlanta, GA.
Post by: crazydave1066 on May 03, 2018, 04:55:17 PM
Hey everyone! Just joined the site and am excited to see what it has to offer! Quick question: can anyone recommend a good Vietnam era computer wargame? The Vietnam War has always fascinated me, but unfortunately it is nearly impossible to find a good game based on it. If anyone could recommend something, that would be great. Thanks!  :)

Welcome, crazydave1066! I only have Vietnam '65. It's a fun, light game and not sure that's what you would want.

Hello Dave. Vietnam '65 gets some good rep around here.

Thanks for the response guys! I already own Vietnam '65, and while I enjoy it a lot, I am looking for something a little more complex and simulation-like.

There's a Vietnam mod for People's General (http://www.peoplesgeneral.de/) that's worth a look. It's stand alone and free!
The direct download link is: http://www.peoplesgeneral.de/Downloads/Peg-Vietnam-1966-7.0.exe (http://www.peoplesgeneral.de/Downloads/Peg-Vietnam-1966-7.0.exe)

Welcome...Operational Art of War IV has some great Vietnam Scenarios. You may also want to check out WinSPMBT...its older, but still on my top 10 list and it has a lot of interesting Vietnam scenarios. Finally, HPS Sims Squad Battle series has one or two Vietnam titles that should be in any wargamer's collection.

Just saw there is a new patch for WinSPMBT. And Operational Art of War is a great suggestion.

HPS has one.

...and even one if you are into the air combat of the era.

(p.s. even though I never got into Atlanta itself much, I loved the area.  I used to live in Suwanee.)
