Suggestion: please create a video based on future games all we as players would *dream* and love to see them done right in next years:
Warcraft 4, Left4Dead 3, FarCry 5, X-Com 3, Witcher 4, Rise of Nations 2
for me Xenonauts and not it's namesake Xcom enemy Unknown, is the real true sucessor to Xcom global defence, the original legendary classic TBSG game which arguarbly defined a genre,....and is prob still better than almost any other..
yes and no, i played the shit out of UFO and Terror from the deep back in the day, but i enjoy xcom/xcom 2 way more than xenonauts, the problem i have with xenonauts is just that the battlescape missions are often just tedious to play through. But in the end of the day its just personal preference i guess...
HOMAM is on a Wikipedia disambiguation page, that's it for top search results, it's about some Indian fire god and some movie of that name: try googling HOMM, you might as well have typed in Heroes of Might and Magic, it'll ask you what number Heroes of Might and Magic are you searching for. The 'a' isn't capitalized, nor is the 'o' but it needs a vowel there to make a simple one-syllable word, HOMM.
Im not glad, because Heroes VII is the best HOMAM in years, except for the bugs. People just dont know what they want. Its as close as you can get to HOMAM 3 with a modern twist as you can. Also to Mike van Veen, HOMAM is not an RPG, its a strategy game, its not going to be in any other video.
I just finished playing Blackguards 2 and although some of the battles were brutally difficult, the ability to restart them when failed made them bearable. The decisions you make for the main character affect which quests are available, and although some people stated that the game had bugs, I had Patch 2.0 (or 2.1) when I started and only came across 1 bug in the final battle. Prior to this turn-based strategy game (for PC), my favorite for years had been HMM3, and I never played Blackguards 1. Overall I have to give Blackguards 2 an 8 out of 10. Lots of fun, adjustable difficulty levels, and some super-challenging battles even on Normal setting.
+James Yes but not while you fight so its not a regular real time strategy. Buildings are just for campaign map. So if i were to play vs you or a pc battle buildings dont matter.
Building are usually much more important in a typical RTS is all im saying.
+James Total war is under RTS which is a real time strategy over a turn based strategy. Total war would be in RTS line up although its hard to compare due to TW having no buildings which is really lacking.
"Mythiventures (Heroes Tactics)" is pretty awesome, it's a combination of HOMM, FF Tactics, and Heroes Charge.

Don't get me wrong but AOW 3 was kinda fucking boring. In the beginning,as I was discovering new things I got that old, near forgotten feeling of "holy shit, new game!". Naturally, I went for Dreadnaught, faken faeries can go hug a tree...preferably as I'm chopping it down with my chainaxe! Did a couple more as such, then did some short ones with the other affinities to see if they're any fun. Nope. They're pretty much all the same spare for some specific moments of awesome.
The Empire management is, basically, non existent, the strategic aspect can be explained with "me bash hard with club". Yup....that's about it. Furthermore, I fucking HATED the 6 unit stack cap.
It's a decent game, but doesn't really have much to keep you going, the races also don't really have a lot of variety or identity. They're all, pretty much, the same thing with minor tweaks here and there to make them seem different.
A very interesting take on Turn Based Strategy is implemented in Frozen Synapse (available on... everything with a colored screen I think). If you haven't already, then you should definitely give that game a chance - it's a turn-based game, BUT both players "make" their moves "at the same time" - difficult to explain, but it works so unbelievably well.
The entire game consists of making your characters of different classes move for 5 seconds at a time, trying to guess the movement of the enemy (and to outsmart him/her in the process, obviously), which is also what your enemy is doing. Superfun in multiplayer.
I cannot believe Beyond earth is on this. There are so many things wrong with that game, I'm not talking about glitches either. There isn't a reason in the world to play Beyond earth over Civ 5. That's in of itself a problem. I do agree with your choice for endless legend though.
Yeah I couldnt either, until he said for this year. It is a smaller version of Civ 5. But considering that turn based strategy is seemingly on life support and that it still has all the mechanics of civilization, I think it is worth making the list.
Yea that's true, it has some RPG elements, like leveling system, skillwheel, inventory and stats, but they don't really mean that much for the game. Of course, later your hero can be stronger than champion units, but still to do it, you have to use strategy and here it's turn based. I consider it an RTS (you can manage some things in real time) TBS (fights and developing are turn based) RPG (hero developing) and X4 (castle spheres) in one, but it has the most of TBS in it. Still, you are one of not many ppl on the internet, who actually admit that they've made a mistake, gj pal! :)
+Maciej Podsiadło My mistake. I confused it with the _Might & Magic_ series (same franchise, vastly different gameplay). That said a TBS and an RPG are not necessarily exclusive. _Heroes of Might and Magic_ is both a TBS _and_ an RPG (specifically in the way the hero characters have stats, inventories, and can level up)
+Angreh Kittunz LOL, and where did you hear that?! In any means Might&Magic: Heroes AREN'T any type of RPG. They are turn based strategy... They arent in there, because they countdown the games of 2014, and Heroes VI came out at 2011 while Heroes VII was pushed to september this year... Sorry, but saying that Might&Magic: Heroes (or Heroes of Might&Magic) are RPG games is just soo stupid that i had to react...
I'm at school so I only saw what games were picked not the reasoning. But seriously how did beyond earth get picked over Civilization V. Beyond earth is a crappier reskinned version of Civ V. Almost the entire competitive civ community has mostly stayed with Civ V instead of moving to beyond earth and for good reason.
+RainMasterXD he is asking a question when he starts off im curious too why people like beyond earth ive tried and its basically that a reskinned civ V with a few neat new things but nothing that makes it feel as tho its worthy to buy.
