The draw for me, the psychology of this game.

overtaker40overtaker40 Registered Users Posts: 378
I have never played a game as much as I have played total war Warhammer. Skyrims 400 hours pales in comparison to the 1500 combined hours I have in the Warhammer games and all there dlc packs.

I ask my self why?

Why does a new campaign always feel like a good idea? I think it's the sheer range provided in each campaign. Every game i gradually start to play less for fun and more for some abstract completion goal, usually between turn 80 and 140, and I can stop playing this faction. I'm glad that final slog is over.

But just as I'm about to play something else, I hear a voice.

Hmmm I haven't played that race in a while - Oh that would be an interesting start position for them - love to try that unique mechanic - I do Want to try that new battle strategy, with those cool units - definitely want to build that unique badass landmark.

And off I go again. Another long game. The sheer variation in this game is astounding. Game Devs have done such a good job and deserve props for all they have done to make the first 80 turns super fun. I don't even consider when buying the dlc packs, that I can barely afford, because I trust them so much.



Ps there should be a shrine landmark somewhere on the map that allows any race(except dwarves) to access a tile specific ability to respec a character standing on it, maybe at an expensive price or costing you a level. Maybe gain a cool trait in the process. I'm stoned.
I like all the races. Equally. Wood elves are just the first among equals.

    When game 3 comes out and it's combined, there will be born a historic game.

    I know what you mean been looking forward to it. I've been trying to set this game down lately (tried to get back into Witcher 3, but got hooked on Kingdom Come after picking it up on sale) after 2000 hours its starting to run out of fuel, with each new dlc barely keeping the flame of joy from dying. Game 3 with its 4-5 new races and large map expansion and other new additions will be a nice boost, but my morale is wavering.

    He said he is stone. Dwarfs mine stones, he doesnt like it, so he has no respect for the Dwarfs....

    In not entirely sure something magic, something lore. I was high when I wrote this.
