    I couldn't get into Deus Ex either when I tried it recently. I love a lot of things that RPGs do, but can't stand the normal generic fantasy themes. I also love FPSs and Sci Fi, so Deus Ex should be...

    I don't usually like platformers, and don't usually like games that are difficult in this way, but weirdly I really liked SMB. I think the fact that when you die you immediately start at the...

    If you simulate world war 2 no one actually dies, but if you include racial slurs (that aren't contexually justified) in a game you are insulting real people.

    I don't think world war 2 shooters...

    I don't think there's anything wrong with having a desire for something, no matter how horrible it may be. What IS wrong is satisfying that desire by hurting someone else, or otherwise depriving...

    Nothing wrong with murder if your not actually murdering someone. I can see why you would want more games with deep meanings, but I personally would find that more boring. As horrible as it sounds, I...

    That's kind of what I meant. It is worth making that clear though; there is no gameplay significance of the factions.

    I think if a faction system had been implemented in a strategy game way, then...

    Yes, that's about the only complaint I have for it, but it's only minor thing. I also don't think there is much they could do about it short of making a fantasy-historical game. Though I know almost...

    It's a very marmite game. It will probably be hard to tell if you'll like it by asking other people, as a lot of people hate it, and a lot of people love it. Unfortunately, there's no demo. I...

    Some games I'll buy at 30, like Portal 2 or Red Orchestra 2, but most I get for a lot less in sales. There hasn't been a game I've wanted to get that has costed more than 30 yet, but I don't think...

    Shogun 2 total war is an excellent place to start. It is easy to get into but has lots of depth. It also looks gorgeous. The real time battles are really easy to manage so don't worry about that. If...

    If you can run BC2 fine can you run BF3? Or is it significantly more intensive? I would try the beta, but it wouldn't let me log in to download it. I'll try again tonight though.

    Day of Defeat feels very restrictive to me now that I've played both Red Orchestras. The maps are a lot smaller and, more importantly, a lot more linear than Red Orchestra. Perhaps they are better...

    Well, all the differences mean that third person shooters are not the same as first person shooters so I would say all of them.

    They share a lot of common ideas and concepts, both being grand strategy games, so if you have no previous experience with strategy games, I think it would help. However, it is still a big leap to go...

    You shouldn't think of EU3 as simulating what it's like to be a general or mayor. That stuff is all beneath you, as the game simulates running the country. Firstly you have to decide what your...

    EU3 plus all the expansions. You'll need to use the wiki though, as the manual only covers the original game. The mount and blade games are very good as well.
