Fallout is a single character game though. The issue I personally have with turnbased is when you have a party, and you just want certain characters to keep attacking, like in say the Goldbox games,…

The important bit to me is that you don't have to give constant orders to your party when all you want them to do is attack. I find combat tedious when I just hit the the same key over and over again…

For me, real time with pause is pretty much the best of two worlds (for party-based games):
With pure real time, you can't really take your time, plan and give detailed orders to the party, and…

Only the first 6 were translated to Swedish, and when I discovered these books, I was just about to enter first grade, so my English was not exactly great. If they fix the issue of massive trial &…

I have a couple of old ones, like the first 6 Fighting Fantasy ones, a lone woof book and one set in the Chock universe. I actually tried to play Forest of Doom less than a month ago, but sadly it…

Indeed. While 30 fps is fully playable, playing at a higher framerate does impact the gameplay in a good way. While I don't think anyone really cares if Europa Universalis is played at 30 or 60 fps,…

I personally found SR2 to be better than SR3 (with the mod that made the game run properly… SR2 might quite possibly have the worst port I've ever seen). The fact that it had serious moments…

You should! They are actually really good, and I say that as someone who prefer my T/SRPGs to be a bit more meaty than the standard JSRPG-fare. Both FE games for GBA & the GC & Wii FEs were really…

Call of Cthulju: Wasted Land has very little in common with the pen & paper RPG, apart from the setting. It's a tactical wargame set during WW1 where you face Lovecraftian monsters as well as German…

I don't see how people can make sweeping generalizations about "phone games" being garbage/a waste of time and at the same time say good things about games like Avernum & Avadon. Those games have…

Yea, it's pretty good. The interface is surprisingly good at giving you a proper overview of your empire, something that I feel that a lot of 4X games fail to do. While I don't think it's the best 4X…

Any game where character development is a central part of the gameplay. If the game also contains the defining trait from another genre, it's a hybrid.

That was my experience as well. It started out quite good, but it went downhill quite quickly and after a while it was just a pain to play.

Just make sure to not judge the game by its translation, which sadly is among the worst I've seen in any text heavy game. The poor translation harms other parts of the game as well, as it can be hard…
