This article explores the relation of WWI popular collective memory to historical videogames. The article provides an overview of WWI games, organising them by genre and determining their engagement with the imagery that typically sustains and constitutes WWI popular memory. The article attempts to explain this lack of engagement by examining the issues that face videogames in trying to engage WWI popular memory tonal incompatibility; fear of trivialisation through ludification ; uncertainty about playable positions given its relatively sensitive and contested nature. Accordingly, the analysis suggests that the nature of the depictions of WWI that players are exposed to in this new popular form is partly shaped by the particular limitations that the videogame form and its perceived cultural role entail. In doing so, the article also examines the nature of the videogame as a form for historical representation. However, these events also show that in many places WWI remains a strong presence in collective memory. Unsurprisingly then, WWI is still represented in a variety of media.
