Medal of Honor is a series of first-person shooter video games created by American film director and producer Steven Spielberg. The first game was developed by DreamWorks Interactive and published by Electronic Arts for the PlayStation in 1999. Medal of Honor spawned a series of follow-up games including multiple expansions spanning various console platforms and personal computers.

The first twelve installments take place during World War II. The main characters are usually elite members of Office of Strategic Services (OSS), while later games focus on modern warfare. The concept, story, and executive production of the first three games was made by Spielberg, who later sold the franchise for Electronic Arts in February 2000. The music in the franchise was composed by Michael Giacchino, Christopher Lennertz and Ramin Djawadi.

Guinness World Records awarded the Medal of Honor series with a world record for Best-selling FPS franchise in the Guinness World Records: Gamer's Edition 2008.

Colette, a short documentary included in the gallery mode for Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond, won the Academy Award for Best Documentary Short Subject at the 93rd Academy Awards. Though not mentioned by name in the Academy citation, Medal of Honor is arguably the first video game series ever to receive an Oscar for its content.

Some Africans complain that there are not enough jobs. Jobs get created by using your imagination and channeling history into books, films, Tv series and games. Africa fought in both world wars 1 and 2.

Using history as a stimulus for creative commercial ventures offers immense potential. Medal of Honor, spearheaded by Spielberg, exemplifies this, merging history with entertainment, resulting in a Guinness World Record-winning franchise. The series not only captivates audiences but also educates on significant events like World War II. This approach isn't limited to games; it extends to books, films, and TV series, creating jobs and showcasing untold stories, like Africa's contributions to world wars. Embracing history fuels innovation, entertainment, and economic growth. #Africa
