Last night and pretty much the last year or so, i have found myself lacking a game that i could just play, that wasn't repitious... After you've play all your games 1,00 or more times, you know all the flaws, like for instance Stronghold:crusader. The games tend to be short, or repititious, the Ai is dumb...kind of thing. I wish there was a type of AI that would grow with you as you played a strategy game. so that the challange grew. Follow me, you start on easy, and you being attacked, the thrill is there early on, but as the game progresses, or should i say stays the same, the challange is gone. If there was an option for the ai to learn, "get smarter" as you played, the challange and thrill would be the same throughout and you would be force to get better as well... it would be like playing yourself almost... but of course, i always win...haha.
