So recently I decided to try and conquer my fear of playing atmospheric, scary games by buying Stalker:SoC. I've lasted about 10 hours before starting to grind to a halt in terms of motivation to play so I've decided to crawl back to my hole in the ground where I play strategy games, but here's the problem: I've worn all my current strategy games to the bone and now I'm looking for something new.
So far in my strategy game journey I've gone from Worms, to Age of Empires, to DoW, to Total War games, to other Total War games. So what I'm after is something where you command a country and allows you to go deeper into the politics/bribery/espionage/diplomacy side of things.
I'm also currently waiting for Stronghold 3 and Crusader Kings 2.
