    Right Here
    Game Name
    Genre featuring notable technology.
    Time place, main character tries to win the game by doing whatever they do to whatever they do it to.

    That template might not be so easy for me.

    Panzer Tactics
    Strategy - old school wargaming that uses a grid super imposed on a map of WW2 Europe and employs turns.
    WW2 setting - you command a military formation consisting of standard military units at about battalion level. Play as German (easy setting) Russian (normal difficulty) or allies (harder setting). Several linked battles for a campaign, or individual one shot battles.

    Steel Horizon
    Strategy - old school wargaming that uses hexes super imposed on a map and employs turns.
    Quasi historical setting - naval setting. 3 military vessel options to lead through a lengthy camapign. Many individual battles available.

    Civilization
    Strategy - old school wargaming that uses a grid super imposed on a map and employs turns.
    Simplified version of console release, but apparently the online isn't buggered.
    Quick easy fun version of this fine game. Challenge level varies. Many nations to play. Duration to play, handful of hours.

    Age of Empires: Age of Kings
    Strategy - old school wargaming that uses a grid super imposed on a map and employs turns (not RTS like the PC release).
    Addictive as hell, several side options to use. Nice aspect, the more you play the more you unlock the more fun it can become.

    Advance Wars (any)
    Strategy - old school wargaming that uses a grid super imposed on a map and employs turns.
    Nice twist is it has a story built in, and in not historical confined. User friendly as a result.

    The above selection is proof a DS can be an adults toy just fine [​IMG]

    "You Are Banned"
    You hit everyone on top of you (including staff) with a fake banhammer shaped like a banana.

    Teh Person Above Meh
    You make comments about the person on top of you.

    I like playing games that involve having people on top of you. WoW!

    This is the EoF. Don't expect serious answers here... You would have gotten more serious answers if you posted this in the Off-Topic Chat forum.

    Thanks, I'll take it there then.
    I wasn't sure if it was allowed there since it was sort of a forum game.
