Abandonware DOS title

Modern warfare: wargaming in modern times sorted by release date

Wargame is a niche genre born during the dawn of the video gaming scene. Since the beginning of wargaming, two of the most important aspects were the setting and the time period such as the classical era, Napoleon wars, World War 1 or 2, modern times, or even the future. Modern warfare is exactly that: war happening in modern times. That said, by "modern times" we mean that period which goes from the post-world wars to the present day. Modern warfare was also extensively used as a theme for other genres such as combat flight simulations.
