Yes, roll your eyes if you haven't already. Make your snide comments "ugh, like there aren't enough?". Now read.
No, there aren't enough. Not anymore. Not on the current generation of consoles. Off the top of my head, all I can think of is World at War and Battlefield 1943 (or whatever year it is). Two. Two WWII shooters off the top of my head compared to the multitude of current/futuristic conflict shooters. So, what isn't there enough of?
I'm a huge WWII fan. Love it. I played the hell out of Call of Duty 1-3 on PS2, and they were damn good shooters. Great story telling, great action, emotional attachments to squad-mates, the whole 9 yards. What's wrong with the shooters now? Hardly any of them have great replay value. The only time they're played more than once is so a few trophies can be obtained, not because the want to relive it is there.
I like WWII games because they have meaning to them. The battles and victories shaped the world as it is now. And I want them to come back, because they're fun as hell.
I'm getting a little bored with all these war shooters that take place in the here and near future. It's basically all the same. Some soviet nation always has its feelings hurt and wants to take it out on America and the rest of the world so you have to stop them before it's too late (which it never is).
Sure, WWII is old. But there's so much of those 6 years that we haven't seen in a game yet, and I want to see what we haven't yet be put into a game. I want to see both theaters, Pacific and European. I want to play as more than just America, there's was a little over 2 years of the war that they had no part in. Let's play as some of the other allied powers. Hell, mix it up and maybe do some missions from the axis point of view. Cover all angles. Make it in-depth, make the campaign the biggest ever. I don't know about you all, but I'm getting tired of all the 10-12 mission campaigns. I don't care about how long it takes to complete, I don't play for speed, I play for entertainment. And lately, I haven't gotten much of that.
I want it to cover everything from the German invasion of Poland to the final atomic bomb being dropped on August 9, 1945. And a beautiful ending with the surrender of the Empire of Japan aboard the USS Missouri. The tactics, the fights, the losses, the wins. I want it all.
Is this too much to ask? Probably. But I want it.
