I voted "other" because for me it really depends on the game. A game like Medal of Honor that really sells itself on being a historical game should go to the effort of making sure it's historically accurate. GK was kind of like that too. Even though it's not really a historical game the way that Medal of Honor is, a lot of the story is based on historical events. And I really appreciated the extra effort Jensen went to to keep it historically accurate. It just seems to make the game that much more interesting.

For other games, though, the history isn't really a big factor. It's just something they use to set up the gameplay. I'm not going to complain about the historical inaccuracies in gunning down a robotic Hitler in Escape from Castle Wolfenstein because that's really not the point of the game. It's just for fun.
