What's her name, /vr/?
That strategy game that never bores you no matter how many times you go back to it, that sweet turn-based action based around producing units and conquering land, all the while getting mad at the AI for fucking cheating.

Gameboy wars was my first bout with strategy, and the series did nothing but improve with the years.

There's still people claiming it was ruined in the DS installments, but I think the only thing they cared about was how they made it impossible to spam infantry and win with the slowest zerg rush ever

Langrisser is my bag.
The original five, anyway. It got weird after that.

Super Robot Wars represent

>> No.3426908

Advance Wars series, especially Super Famicom Wars
most KOEI games, especially Liberty or Death (I'm trying to get into PTO II recently)

>> No.3426920

Langrisser and FFT is my shit. Dragon Force 1 too but that isn't turn based.

Clash of Heroes is addicting as fuck and the campaigns are great

Zone of the enders: the fist of mars on the GBA

>> No.3426952

Advance Wars 2 peaked.

Dual Strike is still good, and it's enjoyable.

Even Days of Ruin, which marks the "end" of the series was still pretty good. I think the main issue with it is that it changed the entire unit structure and instead of being a lighthearted wargame, it turned it into this dark dystopian thing.

which is the best super robot wars for GBA?

>> No.3427029

My favourite turn-based strategy games:

Shining Force
Shining Force 2
Shining Force CD
(wish I had a Saturn to play SF3)

Fire Emblem (the first one on GBA)
Fire Emblem: Sacred Stones
Shining Force: Resurrection of the Dark Dragon (SF1 remake)
Advance Wars (only played the first one, isn't there 2 or 3 on the gba?)

Vandal Hearts (fucking LOVE this game)
Final Fantasy Tactics

>Playstation 2
Dynasty Tactics 2 (several years later and I STILL haven't completed everything in this game. Looking for long as fuck strategy game, this is for you. Great soundtrack too)

Warhammer 40k: Final Liberation

I need to try out more games, I have a bad habit of replaying the ones I really love and have fun with rather than trying something new. I lost count how many times I played through Shining Force 1 and its remake, as well as Fire Emblem: Sacred Stones, and Vandal Hearts.

I heard Warsong (Langrisser 1) is good, along with Langrisser 2. Also been thinking of playing Ogre Battle or Tactics Ogre or whatever, which version is better, the SNES or Playstation?

Its not like you have a lot of choice since only 3 are translated. SRW J.

>> No.3427078

Tried out Future Tactics on the PS2 with a friend last night, was alright and certainly worth the quarter I paid for it

>> No.3427143

I gotta give the vote to advance wars of fft. I like the scale, flexibility, speed and parsimony of their systems.

desu both games were my intro to tbs and I thought I'd love the genre but I actually hate it, and played like, 20 more games like them trying to find another one as good

I jumped straight into the total war series because the tbs genre as a whole just caters to storyline and grinding. it gts really annoying

Master of Magic.

I still need to get a high score with the Draconians that meets my standards. They're one of those races that are good at a lot of things but not great at anything, making it hard to come up with an "efficient" plan for Impossible level play.
