Re: What's the best/worst video game of all time?

The best: The Sims
The worst: building city or similar games. They drive me crazy.

My kids play Sandbox games online, Roblox and Minecraft, the former they are both pretty adept in Lua scripting so use their imaginations to build games and environments. They bounce off each other being only a year apart in age..

As for me, like you, I enjoy FPS games, and used to love also old school D&D sessions.

My partners daughter is into AoS part of the War Hammer family, she has intricate models that she builds and paints then plays off against other players with them with a rule book that looks more like an encyclopedia

Not for me really, taken some of the imagination away and just turned it into a money tree getting kids to buy more and more figures and packs, and believe me they aint cheap...

Re: What's the best/worst video game of all time?

Yeah, the Warhammer games get pretty complex. They also rewrite the rules every couple of years so they can sell more books and models. It's been an ongoing complaint about Games Workshop for decades now.

Personally, I've been a HUGE fan of Warhammer: 40,000 for probably 25 years now. You should have SEEN the rulebooks back then.
