Have You Played? is an endless stream of game recommendations. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time.
Supreme Commander: Forged Alliance initially amazed with its scale. It’s a real-time strategy game in which hundreds of robots collide upon enormous maps, in which the units you build at the start of a match are the size of a metallic toenail on the Experimental units you’ll be building at the end, and in which you’ll spend your time zooming seamlessly up into the clouds just to fit all the destruction on screen.
Seven years later, the scale doesn’t impress me as much. Instead it’s the depth that continues to amaze.
