It’s always fun to pummel the Bosch in video games, but in Battlefield V’s War Stories you get to play as the Germans in The Last Tiger? However, it’s not the first time gamers have been able to play as the Germans…

Silent Hunter III

While Silent Hunter II put the controls of a U-Boat in player’s hands, the multiplayer component abandoned ship leaving its successor, Silent Hunter III to complete the job. In SL III, you are in complete control of the U-Boat and it’s up to you to pick the targets and hunt your prey. It’s Das Boot in the palm of your hands.

Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad

Another FPS that puts you in the jack boots of a Wehrmacht soldier is Heroes of Stalingrad. Best played in multiplayer, HoS leans more on realism with no regenerating health or health packs, only iron sights to aim with and bullet trajectory to take in to consideration. Top draw!

Day of Defeat

Originally starting like as a Half-Life mod in 2001, Day of Defeat is a multiplayer-only class-based first-person shooter that allows either Axis or Allies sides to be selected. It became so popular amongst modders that a retail version of the game was released by Valve in 2003.

IL-2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey

A solid historic combat flight simulator depicting the aircraft and campaigns of the European aerial war of WWII. Here you can hop into a Stuka, Me-110 or the classic Battle of Britain German fighter, Messerschmitt BF-109 during campaigns and view life at 20,000ft from the other side.

Company of Heroes: Opposing Fronts

The single-player campaign component of Company Heroes expansion, Opposing Fronts gives the option to play as either British forces or the German Panzer Elite tasked with forcing back the Allies after the ill-fated Market Garden operation.
