48:58 Mailbag: Games based on real conflicts.
I know this topic skates around political-ish hotbutton topics. If we stepped on your toes, please try to be cool about it.
How do you feel about games that depict real-world wars and conflicts?
Does it make a difference if they’re historical, recent or ongoing?

Spec Ops is a different beast of course, but as far as I know, there
really aren’t any other games like it.
Going back in history, I find it strange that I’m uncomfortable with the
World Wars as settings, but not with anything before. They were extremely
brutal, of course, but so was the 30 Years War. I don’t know why it
should matter how far back you go, but it does seem to matter to me…
