Turn based games and the move to develop too many platformers and side-scrollers on steam? Can't hardly find anything good in turn based games today. If it weren't for Matrixgames/Slitherine I'd go banana's.

Any suggestions for a GOOD turn based game besides the ones I already know here? Something with a decent AI also. Being turn based and no ai or no good ai is just another lame game to me.

PS: I already have Grimlin's Inc. It is pretty good too.

As far as wargames go RTS has become endemic. It's everywhere you look.

Are you talking about wargames and strategy games mostly, or other genres?

Yep, I have read an article about it. Encouraged by success of Angry Birds and whatever else, great amount of game developer wannabes are making second rate clones with little effort and send them to Steam with hopes of profit. It used to work back in the '80's (look up Mystery House and its history), but now not so much.

These games on Steam are not great, but maybe worth considering:

1775
Conquest of Elysium 4 (wait for sale!)
Firefight (Close Combat clone)
Warring States (Been in EA a long time)
Thea The Awakening

Thanks all for the suggestions and I like the looks of battle brothers; been watching some vids on Youtube. Just my type of game if the AI is good. And yes Ranger mostly strategy or wargames. A board game like Gremlins Inc. is acceptable also. Collectable card games eh I can take em or leave em but if they are really good I'll try one or two. Thanks again.

Only three rts games I can stomach anymore: Crusader Kings II, Norbsoft's series of gamea and Command Ops games. Those total click fest wrist twitch; gather all your troops and rush the enemy I just can't stand. Those just aren't wargames in the sense of what types of wargames I'm used to playing to me.

I bought Company of Heroes and CoH2 years ago, but hated click-fests. Recently I installed them and found solutions through various mods. You can also get CoH for as little as $5 if you wait for a sale.

CoH mods include Eastern Front, Battle of the Bulge and Blitzkrieg. The latter one especially uses real tactics (Google it) to win versus the AI. The key (for me) is to use CheatEngine to slow the game down to 25% speed or less. It becomes much more interesting and manageable.

CoH2 also has many Steam Workshop mods and is CheatEngine compatible. The mods have also improved graphics, added tons of maps and units and much more. That's a lot of gaming when you pick up CoH even for full price.

Tank on Tank Digital is worth a look, IMO. Not a heavy simulation, but fun and good to play whe you only have a short period of time. I have no regrets buying it.
