Lets talk about gaming again. What era do you like and what era do you not like ... and why?
In this episode I take a minute to go over a few recent projects I'm working on for myself and then I get in to the topic of the day; WWII, Cold War, Modern, Ultra Modern, what do you prefer and why?

Interesting, totally with you on the game rather than simulation thing.
But could the problem be the scenario rather than the era?
Taking my sci-fi games as an example, if you put the RDF’s best troops up against the CA’s best troops, the RDF will win.
So I make sure the scenario is gameable, I write it so that is possible for either side to win.
I don’t play anything historical anymore as I don’t have the inclination/time to do the research to ensure it is accurate in terms of appearance and that scenarios are true to the facts.
If I were to play historical but ignore these two things then I may as well play sci-fi, so that is what I do.

I am rather envious of his paint station as seen in the video.
About the discussion – the scenario is what it is all about, not a simulation, and for fun.
With historical games, provided the equipment is historically correct and the troop types correct, then that is all I worry about. The rest if about having a fun game based on a scenario.
