Nanny Statesman: I care about the turn-based strategy side more than the real-time battles, so I'm really liking it.


Have you tried the Paradox Interactive games? If you find you're only playing the Total War series for the campaign map and are just automating all the battles, you were probably at the same point I was about four years ago. Try out Europa Universalis 3 (it has four expansion packs you can get as a bundle) which covers 1399-1821, or Victoria II (nineteenth century, roughly), or Crusader Kings 2 (1066-14th century).

They put the Total War games to shame in terms of depth and replayability. And, the newest game, Crusader Kings 2, almost matches Total War in graphics.

I love the Paradox games (especially EU and Hearts of Iron) but I just don't have time to play them anymore.

Call of Duty is like the speed chess version of an FPS. You aren't going to get people who enjoy it to slow down and calculate every move.

HotWingAgenda: I have Borderlands 2 now, and haven't looked back.


Same. I just need to get a good conference call from a lvl52 warrior and a good bee from hellquist at lvl52 and then killing terramorphous solo won`t be so hard.

Then I can REALLY twink my next character. Orange all the way!

A big reason the FPS games of today are so different is that the majority of players are controlling the action with a device that is far removed from something that could actually be used to play a FPS. The action, pacing, and design of the game have to take into consideration that the player is heavily handicapped by the controller.

It amazes me that no company has addressed the controller problem considering how popular FPS games are. It's been 20 years and no one has invented something that can outperform a simply keyboard and mouse.

dragonchild: manimal2878: How many times did you blow your friend?

Once, but I needed a ride reaaallly bad.

Homophobic?  I don't care if you love your friend enough to blow him, it's just obvious that you do the way you are gushing over his skillz.

PhDemented: SearGordon Bennett: So, Farkers, is there something out there that might work for me?

Serious Sam 3 might work for you... bright colors, cartoony monsters...

A little darker but good one from a few years ago was Painkiller... sorta dark and gritty looking, but the weapons would fit right into Hexen....


Wasn't that BulletStorm game along the lines of cartoonish and far from realistic?

I wish Hegemony could be fixed.
