I'm not that good at them, but I really like the old-school hex based war games, and loved when Panzer General came out and allowed me to play something similar on a computer. Does anyone know of something similar that they'd recommend? I have to confess, some of the newer games intimidate me, as I worry I'd have to spend a serious amount of time just to figure them out.
Yeah, I have a similar feeling about many strategy games that I've tried, often a bit too complex to get started with easily. But then again I guess I usually use computer games to relax and unwind a bit, so mostly a casual gamer. :D
