Very sage advice
Although it has to be said a 4 X game can't win really. Play 3 Campaigns to completion in Civ 6 and enjoy yourself, you've probably doubled (at least) the game time you've...
Yeah I hate steamrolling strategy games. I played through to end of all victories of all Civs in Civ V to completion so that I could have the Steam achievements, but after that arbitrary goal was...
The difference between EL and most 4x games in my opinion is that so much of the game happens outside your play. In Civ V, unless on Emperor + difficulty I know I'm going to basically control the...

This is why I like it so much. It's not like Civ where you can more or less do anything if you know the tricks. You always have to compromise.
That's an Endless Legend move as well
Another thing that Civ VI has over any previous Civ game is the apparent ability to colonise RPS content for a week
Civ is one of the most glaringly political games ever made though. It's the Whig interpretation of history made manifest in binary.
It feels like these are the games that require the most tweaking in that sense, but get the least of it. One of the reasons Endless Legend is so good is that it has changed substantially since...

I really want to play TEW but im scwared : (
Gunslinger is great. Don't give a fuck about the story, although I thought it was cute and showed considerable more intent and creativity than a game...

Far Cry 2 is the apex of the FPS kids, sorry

After having a play with Tempest for Endless Legend I'm starting to understand the Ocean mechanics, but basically Oceans are now as much annexable and valuable territories as land regions are and...

Tempest feels big. Like, not just boats that can fight, but the ocean as a whole new arena/form of conquerable territory. All the games I've won of EL in the past have required fairly mammoth...

No there just isn't one as far as I'm aware. The other 2 are delightful.

Stacking up my Halloween (also birthday) playlist. Would pay good money for a Costume Quest 3 : (
I cant get on board with this sorry

That's only part of the issue though, the sense of "otherness" and its portrayal.
My brief foray into the game suggests that other troubling aspects of the Imperial complex, such as the idea of...

I'm baffled as to why it hasn't been on the receiving end of anti Imperial orientalist white privilege lambasting. Not that such would be an accurate or fair critique but theres definitkey things in...

Invisible Inc is the best stealth game, but that's because it approaches it from a rules rather than systems approach.

That COH retrospective/interview thing caused me to buy the complete pack for COH2 on Humble for a tenner, to try the Ardennes Assault.
Of course I never even got that far because I fell down the...

Completed my first Champion run on Darkest Dungeon NG+, which, although only something like final third, is arguably the difficulty apex. It doesn't get any easier after that point but there's...

Not playing, but just finished reading, Wolf Hall, which leaves me gagging for a political ambitions videogame and I'm almost furious one dosen't exist. CK2 disent count for this because you get to...

The estate is your character. That's what allows you to quickly escalate your success by giving heroes the upgrades, skills etc they need to reliably win for you. Heroes are free, they cost no...

I did all the Witcher contracts that were left once i was done, travelling between them without using the minimap for immersion and treating it canonically as removed vigbettes rather than a...

Yeah it's outstanding. You'll hear a lot about it being too hard or punishing but if you treat it as a cautious, knife edge turn based strategy game you won't go far wrong. Tactics win every occasion...
I'm not sure if anyone who chooses to spend actual money on one can be credited with the level of satirical self awareness you ascribe
