Wanted: A New Paradigm

Mon Aug 08, 2016 4:30 pm

Recently, in the context of playing Early Access title Blitzkrieg 3, the question arose “Are RTS games really wargames?”. My initial reaction was 'Not Again!?’.

Nice, Jim!

Hands up, whoever thinks he (or she) is a wargamer -- semantics be damned!

I usually stick a 'Casual' prefix in front of everything, because I never really fully devote myself to one hobby.

I like the idea of wargames anyway, especially from the logistical stand-point, and I'd happily play them with better access & funds.

I'm very serious about wargames. The educational opportunities are fascinating.
