    Because they might actually not post mine (no reason to not though) here is what I sent.

    "Seriously, I'm tired of games being made to appeal only to the lowest common denominator. I'm tired of games being so idiot friendly, that only an idiot will enjoy them.
    I would like a few mainstream companies to finally make a few military history based titles that unashamedly require the person actually read the manual, and actually be ready to think and actually be required to try before the game will deliver squat to the game.
    I'm also tired of games being called wargames, when they are really only arcade shootemups.
    I'm tired of games based on clicking the mouse rapidly being called strategy anything titles.

    I want titles that require real planning, real command decisions, and actual real world military considerations and repercussions.

    Finally, I want military titles to more fully break out of the rut of only being realistically possible if sold for PC.
    I want more games like Panzer Tactics for the Nintendo DS.
    I want more games like Age of Empires: Age of Kings for the DS.

    There's room for more turn based designs."

    Lets see how it gets received.

    Not sure anyone here actually knows the real me.
    I didn't for a long time either.

        Hey Ace, I just copy pasted the entire doc file and you are now submitted for consideration

        Hey, if I actually do get the X-Box 360 you're getting it (and I said that publicly ). I haven't any interest in a 360 at any rate, the things are always malfunctioning.

        You were entered through my name (Paul Maud Dib) and I mentioned it was acting on behalf of Nathan Zachary (so they have at least one real name ).

        They state they will email me if the idea gets posted, so I will let ya know.

            Just saw my game comment posted, managed to get 4 replies, 2 were from one person that obviously wouldn't give a **** if the wargaming industry was here or not

              Have you tried any Paradox games? Those are good (and damn complicated) I've had Hearts of Iron II for 3 years and I'm still learning how to effectively use my military.


              On target though; Just curious, but Ace why is Kansas part of Texas and not Midwest? Balance?

              And it's over the mountain and over the Main,
              Through Gibralter, to France and Spain.
              Pit a feather tae your bonnet, and a kilt aboon your knee,
              Enlist my bonnie laddie and come awa with me.

                My real feelings on Paradox would get me a limited time banning or at least a lecture

                    For that sort of look and design, I'd rather play Gary's game GGWaW AWD.
                    I prefer turns.

                        Ace, just letting you know, your game idea got posted (alas, the text box leads a lot to be desired (sorry about that, no alternative).
