computerwargames: A place to discuss PC/Mac/Console/Mobile Wargames without miniatures
A computer based wargaming community for the appreciation of historical wargames. The miniatures are virtual, rulesets/opponents are often handled by the AI! Touching history with digital Hex and chits.
Hi guys, long time lurker, first time poster etc etc. I've always been interested in the Close Combat series, as I really enjoy games like Combat Mission and Graviteam Tactics, and Close Combat looks similar. They're on sale right now on gog https://www.gog.com/promo/20180320_close_combat_tiein. So, I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations for which game to start with or which one is the best? The older games are super cheap, but I was wondering how well they hold up today in terms of AI and such, the reviews on gog are very positive, but sometimes I worry that there's a lot of nostalgia involved in these. I'm willing to fork out a bit more on something like Gateway to Caen or Panthers in the Fog if the experience is going to be more well-rounded, especially in terms of AI. Any thoughts/advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks
