Any Of The Total War Series

Any Of The Total War Series

This one probably seems like an extremely obvious choice. I mean, if you’re playing Total War: Warhammer, why WOULDN’T you be playing the rest of the Total War games? But, if you’re not, then you really should be. They’re extremely fun strategy games that also have a historical element to them, that allow for extreme creativity from the player. You can’t really go wrong with any of the Total War games, but if I had to give you select games from the series I’d say you should play the Total War: Rome games.

Age Of Wonders: Planetfall

Age Of Wonders: Planetfall

While Age Of Wonders: Planetfall isn’t identical to the Total War: Warhammer series, it’s a really fun 4X game that’s set after an empire falls. You play as survivors landing on new planet’s to try and explore sectors and mysteries across the world. You play your battles in a turn-based system rather than real-time though, but it’s still fun enough for you to get hours out of.

Middle Earth: Shadow Of War

Middle Earth: Shadow Of War

Okay, I know, stop yelling! You’re sick of people mentioning Lord Of The Rings in the same breath as Warhammer, and you just want them to stop. But listen, Middle Earth: Shadow Of War is an incredibly fun game that’s set in a deep and interesting fantasy world and features some incredible large-scale battles between your forces and the forces of Sauron. If you love the lore and the world of the Total War: Warhammer games, then you should give Middle Earth: Shadow Of War a chance. It might not be for you, but you’ll never know if you don’t try.

Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord

Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord

Within Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord, you create a character that’ll take the world by storm. You travel across this world, learning more about it and hiring troops to fight in huge battles. You can have thousands of soldiers fighting at once and destroying entire fortresses, using siege machines on the battlefield. The AI is smart enough to adapt to your tactics, so you’ll have to learn to adapt or you’ll find yourself extremely easily destroyed.
