Don't bother with Call of Duty, played until Black Ops (traded that one in) it has become a novelty in the gaming industry. All they care about is MASSIVE EXPLOSIONS AND GUNS!!

I suggest Battlefield 3 if you want a fun experience but that isn't a total arcade shooter (CoD) or hardcore simulator (Arma).

Played CoD MW3 in the Campaign mode a couple of weeks back - it was good but it didnt feel like a generational difference in gameplay like it was between MW and MW2. Solid everything but is a complete continuation from MW2. Sad tht Soap dies (oops did i just let it out.. considering it is quite a few months old it shd be alrite )

In terms of flight sims, you can't do much better than Eagle Dynamics A-10C. These guys did the desktop sims for the NG. Takes me about 10 minutes and 30+ checklist items to get the thing started and ready to taxi. Just awesome.

BF3 is great, especially with a regular squad. Working together any half-way decent squad can move through and dominate a map within minutes.

Killzone 3 for the PS3 with MOVE controls is currently taking most of my FPS time. MOVE controls work great with MAG as well.

Nuclear Strike was one of the best and most detailed games ever released. Back in 1999, they had pictures and video footages of actual weapon systems. Thats the game that really got me hooked

ARMA 2 for the win, it generally attracts a older & patient community that your fanboy console shoot em up game. It has outstanding graphics but does need a fairly beefy PC to play.

The Project Reality mod for Battlefield 2 is also an awesome squad based game but is losing its community here in Aus.

Here's my 2 cents.

Medal of Honor: Warfigher: Medal of Honor Warfighter | Australia.
Play your country special forces (including Australian SAS) in this first person shooter game. You can play USA, English, Canadian, Finnish, Swedish, Polish, Korean and a couple of other nations special forces to achieve strategic objectives. Yet to be officially released but the beta version released on Xbox suggest it looks pretty good.

Tropical Stormfront: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...m9pZC5mdWxsIl0. - an Android based strategic game (or RTS) where you can play USA, England, Russia, China, Japan, India and Brazil in a more contemporary settings. I've asked the developer of any chances of including Australia in this which he said they will look into it when they have more time and resources available.

Hi everybody,

I wonder if you guys could suggest one or three games that would suit my interest.

I'm not looking for big explosions and nor a game centered on a micro-level, a "one-man-army" type of soldier.

Rather, I am looking for a strategic game played from the position of a field marschal.
Preferably including factual geostrategic issues, as in economical-geographical (natural resources), politricks etc., contemporary but also regarding the comming decades (WWIII etc).

Likewise a similar game from a field marchal point of view but historical could also be interesting, if it's good enough to stimulate macro-level strategic thinking.

And yea, if it matters the computer I'm using is an i5 notebook (with external screen).

Here are my suggestions:

Harpoon 3: Very good game. Complex like hell and the pro version of it is used by some military iirc.

A free Harpoon like game: Global Conflict Blue 2.
Global Conflict Blue : Warfare Sims <- links here. Very solid open source game. Brilliant. No other words to describe it. The fact that people bother to make such a game without being paid, makes me take my hat off to them

A new, improved version of Harpoon: Command: Modern Air/Naval Operations.
Check out their website and videos. Not done yet but will be getting it ASAP. Very nice indeed.
Command: Modern Air/Naval Operations : Warfare Sims

DCS World: Eagle Dynamics jewel and battlefield simulator. It's ambitious plans for the future include a true warfare environment and best of all, the basic version is free. You get an Su-25T with an advanced flight model and avionics and you can amuse yourself blowing stuff up. If you decide to buy their modules, you can buy either study sims that have all the (possible) aircraft instruments and avionics (like the A-10C or the Ka-50) or, the more casual simulator Flaming Cliffs 3 which although not as detailed as their dedicated modules, are realistic enough to give you an idea of weapon platform. Plus, as a modular platform, it has plenty of third party modules being developed for it. This will bring a lot of extra content. They're also developing a harpoonesque module (still a long way to go) this allows you to jump into the JTAC shoes and coordinate land and aerial assets. Including other players.


ARMA III - It's ARMA. It's still an alpha but it's awesome.

I'd stay away from Naval War. The game is just rubbish. Sensors don't work as they should, game is buggy as hell, the best altitude for a plane to cruise is sea level since no detrimental effects are really modulated and, a C-130 lands close to mach 5. It's a huge lemon. Some missions crash just because too many assets are present...

I love Medieval II Total War and I have the mods Stainless Steel (More historically acurate) and Broken Crescent for it. World of Tanks, World of Warplanes and World of Warships are great for historical accuracy when it comes to tanks, planes or ships! I'm also going to get Rome II Total War when it comes out.

You should try War in the Pacific if you like WW2 based games. The original was called Pac War and first appeared in the 90's and was developed by Gary Grisby, probably the best war game developer of all time, its available from Matrix Games and the latest upgrade was done in 2008 so its not really that new. You hold the appointment of I would say a theatre chief like Nimitz, MacArthur and Yamamoto. The units are individual ships, airforce squadrons, brigades and divisions. Very accurate and intense gamming. I would recommend for expert gamers but those with time on their hands to learn it will probably love it. Its turn based and 1 turn is equal to 1 week. IMHO its the best war game ever made with Medieval2 coming a close second.

Yeah it does have its bugs but I haven't found anything like it. I disconnect from the Internet and the game runs much smoother FYI. Not many games let me attack American carrier groups though.
