It would probably be full of cool relevant military missions if it was done by ADM HR or recruiting.

I can just imagine it.

Mission 1; Harrassment Scenario
Mission 2; Public Appearance Scenario
Mission 3; Posting Scenario
Mission 4; Releasing

In each section as a member of the CF you will have to face the difficulties of the following challenges to progress to the next high speed mission!

I know an older version of Ghost Recon for PC can be modified with Canadian Forces skins so that the characters and weapons in the game mirror our military. It's what I used. =)

There is also Operation Flashpoint. A pretty dated game by todays standars, if you puchase the lastest version (usually no more than $15) and spend some time looking on the net, you can download mods for LAVIII's, Cdn infantrymen, Bisons etc, and make it a 'canadian game'. They're expanding it all the time, just do an internet search for Operation Flashpoint Mods.

There currently a mod for BF2 for the PC(Battlefield 2) being made called Conflict Canada and it is looking pretty decent so far. Here is a link to their site. http://canadianforces.aowc.net/main.asp

That was I. The project took an interesting turn. We were aiming to create a FIBUA video game, but discovered the DRDC (Defence Research and Development Canada) was already dumping money into similar projects, and we got a cold response. Which was unfortunate because they appear to be mods to existing video game platforms and mods really limit what you can do...I think we could have build something much more flexable and relevant...oh well.

We did however get a very warm reception from DRDC Atlantic working on a video game training product for them, which should be in the production state within the next couple of months.

Have you ever wanted to play a canadian soldier in WW2 well soon you will be able to. The makers of Call of Duty 3 are saying not only will the player of the game be able to play the regular american, and british, but also polish and yes CANADIAN units!! The game is based from D-Day until the liberation of Paris on August 25, 1944. I am not to sure if it goes through the Sicilian and Italian campains because where I read it it only talks about the Normandy Breakout campaign that busted Paris free from the Axis grip. But it is still exiting that the game features CANADIAN SOLDIERS.

Leave a comment if you believe this is a good idea.

COD 1 and 2 were great fun, so I am assuming three will just be as fun.
What I always thought would be neat would be to play from the Axis perspective. IE: Italians, Germans, etc.

If your on PC you can get a mod for battlefield 1942 called Forgotten Hope.  On top of being an incredibly detailed mod for the game there is a Liberation of Cean map which you can be Canadian.  They added some vehicles with Canadian markings too.  Some of the maps for this mod are fantastic for online play.  It really adds to the game...countless new vehicles and tanks.

Didn't like COD1, and I never bought COD2.  However, if there is a game with Canadian vehicles, soldiers etc. in it I'll buy it just to see what it's like.  Anything with Canadian content interests me.  It's nice to get a bit of recognition as a nation for what we contributed, even if it is a video game.

Apparantly COD3 will feature the typical British and Americans, as well as both the Canadians  ( :dontpanic: :blotto::cdn:) and the Polish Armoured. It will be all about the Liberation of Paris.

Though, I'd be sorely dissapointed if the Canadian missions were reduced to crappy little stealth missions or something stupid like that.

COD 1 and the expansion was great, I played about half the single player, and the rest of my free time for about half a year was spent playing online with that game. COD 2 came out, the MP sucked, it was super regressive. I played a bit of the SP, it was ok, nothing to fancy. I think I will pick up COD 3 because if the developers sorted themselves out, and make a game for the PC and actually support it(it took 8 monhts for the first patch to come out for the PC version of COD2), I will give 'er a try.

I think they would have to redesign the movement controls, so that backwards was backwards, and forwards was backwards as well.  ;)
While playing any nation in SP is okay, the real fun would be able to pick any nation in MP, including irregular forces like French Resistance, or Yugo Partizans.

If you played the French THEN you'd have to RENAME some of the controls:
-there is no forward
-backward is now referred to as "French Advance"
-You secondary weapon is a white flag :D

Be serious people.. Imagine it though..there is "Americas Army"
it focuses on the Army

the game might be callled "Canadian Forces"
Since the Canadian Forces are all 3 services combined.
You can choose your path as a new recruit.
RCA
RCAF
RCN

then within there you can choose your own "trait"

so in the RCA(Army) you can join and infantry unit or an armored unit,etc
in the RCAF(airforce)you can decide to fly helicopters or fighters or transport aircraft
in the RCN(Navy) i dont got a clue what the navy does really.....so lets say you can choose what kind of ship?

Maps-->Would be places that the Canadian Forces are actively involved in plus some "Make-Belive" maps...So ie Afghanistan,Bosnia,Kosovo etc

Missions:There would be Singleplayer,or Multiplayer
Singleplayer Campaign:
RCA-->As an infantry unit you can be like on patrol when your unit gets ambushed by enemy forces and you must fight your way out of hostile area to a LZ where you get evactuated
Armored unit--> Your LAV-III unit is part of a resupply unit and you must fight your way there

RCAF-->Helicopter pilot=Scramble! A fishing boat has hit rocks and is taking on water.. you must fly your cormorant helicopter and rescue the stranded fishermen before its too later
Fighter Pilot(maybe like the yugoslavian campaign?)
Transport=Must fly your CC-130 Hercules and perform a humanitarian supply drop(maybe like the first mission?)

RCN=Your ship has accidently entered Unfriendly Waters..Be prepared for anti ship missiles and other unfriendly ships

so stuff liek that...i came up with that in like 10 minutes....now think wat some ppl who kno how to make games cud do in like a year!?

if it had all 3 services the game would be like 20 GB or something

I bet they could use a spellchecker!  ;D

The game industry is profit driven and the market for a hoo-rah Canadian military game just isn't there. Let's face it, how exciting & cool is it going to make the military look when people have to hit a button requesting American air support? User created gaming and mods are great but I doubt anything of significance will ever come out officially - there are better ways to spend money on recruiting and training than video games, like implementing new recommendations, or buying bullets!

Post wherever you want but remember people in here have actually done what you have only read and heard about, so before posting do yourself a favour and remember where you are, will only save you the embarrasment later as you have no doubt already learned.

Also...before you bring a point forward please remember who YOU are (or aren't) and look carefully at whom you may be speaking to. Chances are they've been around the block once or twice...

I don't know if this has already been posted, but, here it goes:

It seems the CF is actually building a mod for the game "SWAT 4", to better train officers. Screenshots and an interview are posted at http://www.hot-swat-mods.com/

No seems about it, I was in Gagetown this summer at the Infantry School on PAT platoon, they had us playing SWAT for hours at a time, working with very, very early parts of this mod. Can't wait to see the end result.

I just finished beating Call of Duty 3 for PS2 and there is a fair bit of Canadian missions in it, it's a good game that takes place in World War 2.

The CF in video game's

With many new games coming out that emulate war from "Call of Duty" and "Battlefield" how many of these show Canadian soldiers?
Has the CF even been spoken to about this topic or shown any interest in it?

(not trying to be rude here, I do know that war is a serious matter where many good people risk their lives.)

Do I know if the CF (or any former or current members) have spoken with eager game developers... No clue.  I do know JTF-2 was included in the models used to represent world class tier one operators in a game sold last year called : 'Medal of Honor : Warfighter', which despite its painfully awful gameplay, it did have a couple of interesting features in the game which simulated SOME aspects of that shadowy world correctly enough to get some members of the US special forces in trouble for working too closely with game designers. 

All that aside, my opinion on the matter is that while imitation is a great form of flattery, and I am glad anytime CANSOF (or any other serving member of this fine nation) is shown respect and admiration, I really lean towards the preference of having their image be more about the 'quiet professional' as opposed to the guys on billboards and in video game commercials. Reason is in my eyes fame often attracts not only annoying groupies, but sometimes the more sinister crowd, so keeping our shadowy warriors in the shadows makes sense to me personally. 

And really... If any more recognition is going to materialize, I personally would rather have it come from the general public who might be inclined to lobby with a palatable tone for better funding and care for our service members, not the Call of Duty 'ninjasniper' crowd.

Just my $.02

Cheers

There is a game called Wargame: Red Dragon which pits Nato against the Warsaw Pact and Canada  :cdn: seems to be well represented. It's a RTS and you can Play as just one nation under the skirmish section. The only reason I bought it is because Canada is in it and I'm enjoying it.  Check it out  and see what you think.

I love WG:RD, but rarely play a Canadian deck. The ADATS is pretty awesome, but the lack of almost anything else doesn't make it nearly as fun for me.

That said, this game is just shy of everything I want in an RTS. The only thing else I would ever want is the ability to control individual units/soldiers. Anyways, I just want more and more of this game.
The process is not the mission.

NinerSix... WG:RD is absolutely amazing!  You're right though, the Cdn Deck pretty much sucks...  I am a bigger fan of the Total War series though... hooked on Rome 2 right now!

I was still playing the original Rome Total War in between Wargames. I was really digging the whole Roma Surrectum mod, which I still need to play more of before moving on to Rome 2.

I still play the original Rome:  Total War as well... I play Europa Barborum mod.  Total War:  Rome 2 was terrible when it was released, SEGA forced the devs to release an unfinished product and it took some severe beatings from users as a result.  15 patches later and with the just recently released Emperor Edition, the game is finally living up to its namesake.

My favorite Total War game is still Empire: Total War just because of the scope of the game and the different theatres available to play in..... As well, I just really like the gunpowder era.  Shogun 2:  Fall of the Samurai comes in a close second.

Though its interesting to see how the CAF may of shaped up if the cold war didnt end
