    The game's far from perfect, but I don't understand when I hear this criticism. I mean, the strategy is in the name of the game: go in quick and nasty, do some damage, get out even faster. FWIW, I...

    If you're playing tutorials for CKII, you're doing it wrong. Just dive in, watch everything go wrong, and enjoy the chaos. Also, it has a lot of buttons and things, but you don't need to be using...

    Dune 2. Try Dune 2000 if you want the non-chiptunes version. The original Dune game soundtrack is also good.

    Fallout. Mark Morgan etc. Fallout 3 for the pop songs.

    It's already had lunar colonies, in fact. What we really need is a TES game that isn't afraid to show off the insanity that's in it's own lore. But, yes, high-magi-tech would be fun.

    This is true of more than Bioware, I think. Regarding Bioware specifically, It's odd, because games like KOTOR and Jade Empire were kitchy and silly but also narratively very tight. It seems like...

    Never mind Total war. Try Mount & Blade, Crusader Kings 2 or Hegemony, depending on whether you prioritise tactical battles, politics or military operations. I haven't played any Total War games...

    There are a few moments like that, but overall it's not too bad. What's funny is that I notice these things more in games. Spaceships don't fly in straight lines! Are there any games other than KSP...

    I've been wondering whether I should try Knights of Sidonia. Since it's 'good but weird' sounds perfect for me. My favourites are probably Ghost Hound and Jin Roh, which I haven't seen mentioned here...

    I like a lot of RPGs, including some Bioware ones, but I found both Dragon Age and Baldur's Gate 2 dull beyond words. So, BG2 is clearly the game you are looking for. KoTORs 1&2 are excellent and...

    Director's cut was free for people with Dragonfall, so I don't think you'll have much luck. FWIW, Dragonfall was much better than the vanilla game, and the DC comes with a bunch of extra content (not...
