Civ 2.
That's probably the game I've spent the most hours on.

There was. But the hoster was the hughest faggot ever then it died.

Mount and Blade Warband. I've been playing for three years. I can't stop.

What makes it so replayable? I mean, it's an action RPG.
>>
Probably Elona.

>>268125301
What does being an action RPG have anything to do with replayability

>>268125396
Limited options with predetermined consequences.

>>268125469
That's like any game ever.
>>
>>268125534
Well, in Fable you can do anything.
>>
Probably WoW. Dumped like 500 days into it and always find myself going back to it. I've never made it more than 6 months without resubbing for at least a month.

SF4 or WoW.

CK is up there, though.

>>268125301
Your actions and the game's reactions change the flow and the story of the game. The game has a lot to do in it. Personal action based combat, including melee and ranged equipment. Equipment that changes how you play.
The ability to raise and command a relatively large army given vidya's current standards.
A simplified diplomatic system that changes how the game is played during the lord and king phases.
The ability to do so many things. You can become a rich trader, a lowly bandit, lords, travelling swordsman for hire, run the tourney circles, and even be a king by your own hand.
Then there's mods which improve the basic game. Mods that change the setting. There are even a few games that change the entire game, like TLD.
It's like a hundred games in one, truly.
>>
Probably Dota 2, that shit's like crack cocaine.
>>
>>268125804
And the gameplay is tons of fun
>>
2000+ hours in Dota2, At least the same in wc3 Dota.
I don't even wanna know how much I spent time on WoW during vanilla-wotlk. Also warcraft 3, at least a 1000 hour there too.
>>
Mount and Blade or Rome Total war

I certainly agree. I tried to keep my post pretty objective.
>>268126249
Viking Conquest DLC confirmed. Check out TW's twatter.
>>
As far as the game with the most time invested, that would have to be TERA at around +1300 hours. I haven't played in months, but come December I'm sure it'll consume most of my time again.

Much bigger, 300 years later, with naval combat and coastal raids. Also includes multiplayer.

I tried to get into CK2, but I'll have to admit that it's a bit too hardcore of a strategy game for me

I wish I could get into it, the idea of it is pretty cool

I'll take the bait.

1. play the tutorials until you run into a broken one
2. start the game as Holy Roman Empire
3. mess around until you figure shit out
4. ???
5. do it for free

either you'll get into it and like it or it really isn't a game for you

Well it's still getting new content on a regular basis.
I'm having fun with the master quests right now and Act 4 is only a few months away.

Pic is my most recent build
>>
>>268127479
Look, I freely admit that this genre is a bit beyond me. I need much simpler games like Civ or Total War
>>
>>268127320
It isn't actually that hard, as someone who only started playing it and strategy games generally within the past few months, it is essentially just a dynasty management game.

Losing in the game is arguably a lot more fun than winning it. So it being hard isn't necessarily a bad thing.

In my first game I managed to rise accidentally to the top of the Byzantine Empire as a woman with gonorrhea, a penchant for impaling people on spikes and obsessed with blinding people. Swiftly I was deposed and became a mere duchess again on the edge of the Empire.

He's trolling you.

Play as a duke within the HRE

>>268127835
>It isn't actually that hard

Once you learn what the fuck is going on, it's not hard at all. The AI is balls and doesn't even use like half the gameplay mechanics.
>>
>>268128149
What? I was serious.
HRE emperor is great to start with because he's so OP.
>>
>>268128078
These are mutually exclusive?

>>268124509
Pokemon games as a kid. Nothing has since ever topped it besides online shooters for me.

>>268128098
That's a terrible thing to do for a new player. You will have tons of vassals to manage and no outside threats.

Good starts for beginners are small to medium sized kingdoms with few vassals and good possibilities for expansion. I suggest trying out Poland if you want it easy, or one of Spanish kings or dukes for some reasonable challenge.

Also, Ireland in 1066 bookmark is considered to be tutorial island. Start as one of counts or dukes and try to become the king.
>>
>>268124509

Yeah 610 hours into this game but i cant currently stand it.
>paradox in charge of programming

The game get so slow after 400 years it takes like 30 seconds to save in IronMan mode

>>268128226
Part of the fun is rising up from below to the top, starting as emperor is no fun at all.
