Wonderful post! I /so/ wish I could get into RTS games. But alas, the micromanagement always puts me off. (Personally, I think I'm more of a tactician than a strategist.)
My grrl and I finished Silent Hill 3 Saturday night. Great fun there, but it did seem a bit short. So my question (/her/ question) is:
What's next? Fatal Frame was too hard for her, though she did rather much like the fear factor. Other than that, we've really only done the SH series. I don't know whether she'd like the RE series; is the camera and controls /that/ bad? Is it too gruesome? I know many who like one series don't like the other, so.. maybe Clock Tower 3?
