Given that we're a group of gamers who like TBS games I thought I'd ask everyone what their current favourites are, and why.
For me it's:
1 - Chaos Reborn - Some of the tightest combat balancing that I've seen, easy to pick up and play, but as a game it takes some mastering. It's a shame that more people don't take the time see the full depth of the tactical battles.
2 - Temple of Elemental Evil - Very faithful adaptation of D&D rules makes for some very cool combat, it's pretty complex and not for the faint of heart, and it also need mods adding (Thanks Blobka for showing me this, and showing me how to get it working), but once you get into it and the levelling up gets going you're in for some cracking battles.
3 - Blackguards - I love the atmosphere of the world, and the characters within it, but it's the set piece battle setups that really make the game for me.
4 - Shadowrun Dragonfall - First time in a long while that I completed a game, I normally lose interest part way through, but the story line here kept me wanting to see what would happen next. Nice levelling system too which means you have some meaningful decisions to make as you play.
5 - Dwarf Run - In someways it's a bit shit to be honest, lots of unity store assets, and some of the story line is plain weird, but it's also a really charming indie title, and given that it was created by 1 man it's a surprising enjoyable game to play through.
- This week I have been mostly playing Chaos Reborn.
