I tried HOI4, a PC WW2 board game interpretation, and found I did not have the patience to learn a hundred details poorly explained. Sorry, Paradox Gaming.
So I got XCOM 2 on a $14 sale and am loving it circa Christmas. XCOM2 is much more accessible than XCOM 1, for the simple existence of flashbangs and ninja Rangers.
My nephews dropped in for Christmas, digging on Metal Gear Solid V Phantom Pain. A niece asked, “why can’t you explain to them what’s going on and talk them through it and avoid violence?”
A reasonable question.
So we stunned the adversaries and did not kill them per se.
