Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I like Dungeons & Dragons 4E very much, but I'm usually stuck as the DM. I'd really love to be on the player's side. This got me wondering if there were any video games that play similarly to the D&D 4E experience.
These are the criteria for the sort of games I'm looking for:
* Turn-based tactical RPG
* Small number of player characters (less than 10)
* Each PC is specialized to fulfill an integral role
* Positioning is key to victory
* Enemies can be forced to reposition, such as by being pushed
A lot of people criticize 4E by claiming that it's like a video game. Despite this claim, I haven't found too many games that play like it. Here's what I've got so far:
* Final Fantasy Tactics
* Wizard's Crown
* Breath of Fire: Dragon Quarter
Are their any other games that fit my criteria I could look into?
Sure, you repel Godzilla the first 5 times he comes at you but then some giant mutant pillbug hits you from below or Polly the radioactive pterodactyl dive bombs your metropolis or Zippy the laser breathing gigarabbit strikes at mach 5 and you can't even hit the thing with conventional weaponry and everyone is back to square one.
