1 AGE series ( mostly RUS and AACW)
2 Combat Mission Series
3 Second Front ( dated by todays standards but an amiga version of War in the East; may have even been made by G.Grigsby)
4 M1 tank platoon and Gunship (Microsoft) also dated
5 Silent Service ( Microsoft sub sim) again dated
There are certainly better sims now and I have a few but nothing compares to the first time I dove deep and heard the creaking hull and the destroyer escorts coming closer or looked around as the tank commander and saw an anti tank missle heading toward me.. nothing to do but kiss my *** goodbye. Yes there are better games today but the fact that I remember these 30 years later says an awful lot!

TheDoctorKing wrote:No way! I remember buying EU3 with great anticipation, loading up as the Russians (good early choice as they don't have too many options to confuse you), and waiting for Ivan the Terrible. No Ivan? No Michael Romanov? No Peter the Great? The Poles have good kings and leaders? And there isn't even an option for a historical leader set? I tossed the DVD irritably to the floor and never played again. What a waste of money! I wish they had said somewhere more clearly that this was a fantasy game set on a map of the world rather than trying to sell it as a historical simulation game.

If you wage fewer war, Gustave Adolphus survives longer, and it would change all the serie of the Swedish kings, for instance.

If a leader died in battle then I don't kill him off at a fixed date by event, if he was murdered or died of illness then I do - but maybe I should make it a % chance around the date rather than exact. Would players then think the scenario poor if leaders were around longer than historically? Sorry a bit off topic!
