U2, I'm happy to tell you that wargaming is alive and well! The best starting place on the net is the Consimworld website (www.consimworld.com). It has links to the wargame companies that are active nowadays. However, the best feature of the site are the forums with numerous folders for different games, companies, conventions, and other related topics. As is here on Matrix Games, the forum discussions are interesting and informative.
My personal recommendation for good game companies is Multiman Publishing and GMT. Both produce top-quality, high-playability games and Multiman has license to Advanced Squad Leader which is roughly the boardgame equivalent of SPWAW. Multiman also publishes the Gamers' line of products which has several different series of games on WW2 from tactical to high-level operational. Also, if you were a fan of the SPI games from the 70's and 80's, Decision Games has license to most of its products and has been reprinting some titles.
