I've been thinking a lot about games (and watching documentaries, videos) and it's more likely that there's people that learned about WWII and the Cold War mainly from Call of Duty and other games than like from actual history. There has to be a line about reenactments of actual events since these things are still being used as leverage in discussions (and these people grow up to be "voting members" of society or influence people who tend end up voting).

Like there's literal people from the US Department of Defense involved in the making of these games.
