If you are into the real-time strategy (RTS) games at all, you could try Rise of Legends. RoL was done by the same people who did Rise of Nations - and I loved RoN. If you've ever played RoN, you're familiar with how open the game was - it seemed like there was 20 different ways you could beat a game. If you liked to turtle and build, you could turtle and build - and still win. You had to balance your economy across something like 6 different supplies/ RoL has a more limited focus, more the 'standard' RTS, where you track just wealth and generic supplies.

In any case, RoL (and RoN) are both fun to play... but only if you like RTSes.

Aginor misses the eras of the Adventure game, bygone golden age of Sierra, Origin, and Dynamix.

One of Aginor's all time favorite time-wasting entertainment diversions was titled "BETRAYAL AT KRONDOR," and quite solidly had cornered Aginor's brainpan on the "Most well designed classical fantasy world converted to game."

Aginor's youth was spent in quiet reverence with the "Quest for Glory" and "King's Quest" games, and one of Aginor's earliest memories of games dealt with the library at his Father's military outpost and it's black and white rendition of King's Quest (The Original).

Oh, Aginor laments and cries onion tears for the lost borders of macabre and adventure, where the 7th Guest on the 11th Hour could save Spielburg from the evil clutches of... something something. Aginor forgets.

May all who participated in the demise of the adventure game burn in the everlasting burny pit of burning infernoness. Or the sphincter of the Great One. Whichever is more painful, he guesses.
