    Disciples II: Dark Prophesy

    Disciples II: Dark Prophesy

    The Disciples series games are masterpieces of storytelling and artwork, especially the Disciples II group of games (each of which is stand-alone and not an expansion pack).  Up until Disciples III, they were 2D games with very low system requirements. Yet, they are quite lovely to behold, even the monsters, with graphics based on hand-painted, highly detailed paintings.  Even the maps and battle scenes, like the one in the picture, are quite a sight to see.  While Disciples III goes 3D it does a decent job of attempting to retain the artistry of the series.  While the story told is basic fantasy stuff with powerful deities duking it out through their followers' battles, it is told quite well. Oddly enough, no one has novelized or turned these stories into a movie or show while other games with far less of a story to them have them. Go figure.  This is a game of empire building in which your progress in taking over the 'world' of the game is actually visually striking. Your faction actually transforms the terrain and gains benefits from controlling more and more of it. You have to improve your capitol and controlled cities to gradually build up a more powerful set of adventuring parties to take on the other factions.  The best part of Disciples II games are their super easy yet quite powerful level editor kit that is literally drag and drop for everything, yet you can make levels that look and play just as good as the main game in a matter of a few hours complete with text box dialogs and scripted events.

    Fallout 2 A Post Nuclear Role Playing Game

    Fallout 2 A Post Nuclear Role Playing Game

    Before Fallouts 3 and 4 made the name famous among first person shooter fans, Fallouts 1 and 2 were turn based 3rd person view games. While the title suggests that this is an RPG, I find it to be more of a strategy game with RPG elements. Like Warhammer 40K, the Fallout series is a grim vision of the future that will even have you feeling grim after a few hours of trying to keep your poor vault dweller alive in a nuclear wasteland full of monsters and poisions.  Even the rats can take you out.  Strategy lies not only in how you load out your hero and how you upgrade his perks, but also in how you approach each challenge in the game. There's more to it than just shooting everything in sight. In fact, most of the time, you won't have enough ammo to do too many spray n pray moves. You can try to avoid enemies, convince the more sentient ones that you aren't an enemy, figure out how to get past a seemingly impossible barrier and more.  There is even an edition of Fallout with squad tactics called oddly enough Fallout Tactics.  The amazing thing about that game is that you get just as deep of a customization experience with each of the characters in your squad.

    Fire Emblem

    Fire Emblem

    Few games can make you feel the anguish of losing a beloved hero, especially ones with 2D sprites) like this one.  As the story unfolds, you get to know the main heroes and their friends through well-written cut scenes.  They level up, gain new abilities, weapons, etc. almost like an RPG.  No matter how high they climb, one well placed strike by a foe can still take them out. Permanently.  If you want to adventure with that character more, you have to start all....over....again.  There's no hauling their corpse off to some cleric for being revived. The strategy system seems simple to learn, but is tough to master with classes of warriors who tend to do better against other certain classes and weapons that tend to best other weapons in a rock-paper-scissors sort of way.  But just because you are using a calvary unit wielding a lance that is superior to his enemy's ability and weapon doesn't guarantee victory as the game still rolls the dice in the background to some degree.

    Warhammer 40,000 Dawn of War II

    Warhammer 40,000 Dawn of War II

    While the Warhammer series is a bit lighter on story than Fire Emblem, it more than makes up for it in strategy.  This game is not just inspired by turn-based table top strategy games, it is based on one. Only one of the most iconic of them too by the way. The table top versions are still being played on amazingly detailed three dimensional model maps in hobby stores and conventions across the world even to this day. The video games do a great job of bringing this game of brutal precision where everything is statted and measured to virtual life.  Not only does it matter which unit attacks which and with which weapon, but it also matters from which direction, whether there is cover and what type, the armor class and condition of the exact spot where the weapon hits and more. Not to worry though, unlike the table top game, you won't need a tape measure, books of charts and a bag of dice to figure out what happens.  The video games are even more of a visceral experience with great sound effects, graphics and epic soundtracks.  Coming in both post apocolyptic giant mecha fighting (as in Warhammer 40K Dawn of War II) and in more medieval fantasy flavors, it has wide appeal.
