World War III games
Group DescriptionGames that are based on a fictional Third World War scenario. Games included in this group are not restricted to a specific genre. As such a war would be, by definition, global, there are no pre-requisites for the game's locations. Some games may use World War III as a backdrop or setting to tell a plot or story independent from the war itself.
- Games must specifically refer to the in-game war as being a third world war, either within the game itself, in the game's documentation, or posthumously in a successor title in a series; unnamed global wars belong to an alternate group.
- Games which take place following World War III do not belong in this group, particularly if the setting is post-apocalyptic. These games belong in a separate group.
