Wargaming and an Xbox noob
« on: December 14, 2017, 07:47:46 PM »
There aren't any gaming consoles in my house. Last time that I think I had one was an Atari in the 80s. But Santa is bringing and Xbox this year. Are there any war games worth playing on an Xbox? I'm not a big FPS guy.

Recommendations?

Lots of first-person shooter types, but not a lot of good turn-based games.  Most of them are going to be real-time games
