After playing countless ww2 fps games, the one thing i still can"t figure out is why is there no video game based, on the invasion on the Japanese homeland,or Operation Downfall, let alone an HBO mini series!

-------------------------------------------------------------Details-------------------------------------------------------------

Just to give you an idea what it could of been.

Think of an invasion that would of resulted in 10s of millions of Japanese dead,an deaths of a five hundred thousand allied troops,to one million.


This invasion would of happened during October,or 2 months after the two atomic bombs were dropped. Also with in those two months we would of had an additional 7 nukes to use on the home lands.


"Operation Olympic, the invasion of Kyūshū, was to begin on "X-Day", which was scheduled for November 1, 1945. The combined Allied naval armada would have been the largest ever assembled, including forty-two aircraft carriers, twenty-four battleships, and four hundred destroyers and destroyer escorts."-WIKIi-


"Fourteen U.S. divisions were scheduled to take part in the initial landings."-WIKI-


"Operation Coronet, the invasion of Honshū at the Kantō Plain south of the capital, was to begin on "Y-Day", which was scheduled for March 1, 1946. Coronet would have been the largest amphibious operation of all time, with 25 divisions"-WIKI-




-----------------------------------------------the story---------------------------------------------------------

There was also an successful coup(in reality there was one, and it failed),on the Emperor of Japan just the night before his announcement to tell the Japanese people to give up.

Now you are a soldier of either America,Russia,Britain,Australian,Canadian,and you must survive the slaughter house,that make anything during the past war look like a drunken bar fight.

Or you could just use one of the countless alternate reality books,which tells the story where this invasion did actually happen.

----------------------------------------What your fighting-------------------------------------------------
545,000 troops


10,000 aircraft-mostly used for kamikaze-


Patriotic Citizens Fighting Corps—which included all healthy men aged 15–60 and women 17–40, numbering 28 million—to perform combat support

After watching the Pacific, I'm convinced it was better that the war ended when it did. The Pacific conflict was brutal, and I'm not sure I have the stomach for that kind of carnage, even in a game. Enough lives were lost as it is.

still,i can believe it's not really talked about in the media. Everyone say it's terrorism that we bomb the two city's,yet it's really funny how fast they shut up when i give them the statistics of what would of happened in 2 months.

it still makes youwonder how different would both united state's and japan's society would be like if the invasion did happen.

It's not that hard to figure out. While many if not most support the use of nuclear weapons against Japan as a deterrent for later lost lives, there is still a sense of shame and immorality in bringing up the act in any way. Given the direct elimination of so many citizens it is still very much a sore spot in Japanese culture and guess who likes to play a lot of video games?
