As with any smartphone in 2014, there’s no more important feature than the camera. It’s what we use to take photos with our friends and families, how we remember what we ate and what our kids looked like way back when. The camera has always been one of the iPhone’s most impressive feature, and this year, Apple says it’s gotten a huge upgrade.

The Assassin’s Creed curriculum: can video games teach us history?
So what is the goal of playing a game rooted in history like the Battle of Okinawa, once the events have already been set, the books about them written, and the collective memory intact? As one developer told me, games are actually perfectly suited to model complex systems with a number of moving parts — which sounds a lot like the conditions of history, where chance circumstances and actors collide to create the occasional moment of extreme cultural significance. And today, as the historical game genre has expanded parallel to indie gaming’s success, there are an increasing number of ambitious games experimenting with and rearranging those interlocking, constantly shifting components.
