You may ar­gue that the last thing the world needs is yet an­other mil­i­tary game. But Can­non-Fod­der wasn’t just an­other mil­i­tary game. For a start – as the name hinted – it took a sub­tle but sus­tained pop at the fu­til­ity of war. Game­play-wise, it was near-per­fect: its squad-based mis­sions saw your sol­diers heav­ily out­num­bered and not ov­eren­dowed with ammo, so you’d have to use ev­ery­thing at your dis­posal, like jeeps and rock­et­launch­ers, in a fo­cused, tac­ti­cal man­ner. Its top-down view­point prob­a­bly wouldn’t work these days, but it could make a great third-per­son shooter.
