Hmmm, let's see, trench warfare = not fun?

Crappy slow ass tanks = not fun?

Miles of open terrain covered in big holes = not fun?

Sitting around for hours waist deep in ya own piss waiting to run across said open terrain only to get ya ass blown to bits by huge bombs that you cant hear coming = not fun?

No thanks.

lol WWI wasn't that interesting? and historically maybe they don't have enough info to make a decent game?

CoD can turn all that into fun.

getting "violated" by huge raybeams from the sky = fun
getting headshoted from the other side of the map = fun
:D

well, niether war was obviously "fun", but the second WW was more "fast based" correct? so I guess its easier to make games that fit that model and are also fun. trench war sections are also fun, most war shooters have some stages where it is like trench warfare.

Most soldiers carried bolt action rifles. No automatics. Not even SMGs. Boring.

It could probably be done but I doubt it'd be fun.

I'm sure there have been WWI mods for HL or HL2, play one of those and you'll probably see why no games have been made.

I know the HL2 mod that covered the American Revolution was ok because it was a mix of melee and ranged combat but WW1 was basically just millions of people getting mowed down by stationary machineguns and then watching their limbs rot off in trenches.

Not to mention the widespread use of bio-warfare...

Don't forget about the war of 1812. Best war ever.

Lots of fun in WWI

bayonets, mustard gas, lugers, indestructable tanks, and giant machine guns.

Isn't there some WWI combat in "The Darkness"?

Oh and I remember some Red Baron games.

Hmm...WWI Battlefield mod with Bi Planes, tanks, gas masks might be fun.

Iron Storm was ok. It was a WWI game, but went on with the premise that the war never ended and you play in the early 1960's. It's a few years old now.
