    "I love to play the video games and this one is about war so there is much action to be had. The name of it is the Total War: Arena and it is soo good! You can even play it for free, online with other people that are also online. It is a war simulation game and boy is it a fun one, you should play too!"

      "This is a great game to play. This is the best place to purchase it and it's pretty cheap so it's the best of both worlds. It's a wonderful fantasy game and my children and I have had lots of hours playing this game, the only problem with it is it can be very addictive you don't want to stop once you've started."

      "There are a lot of RPG's where you can play the bad guy but Dungeon Keeper is one where it's based on you being an "Evil Lord". It's not exactly an RTS but it's a cult classic and pretty close to being what an RTS would have been at the time of its release. It's highly reviewed on GOG."

Numerous items and weapons you can add to your arsenal and lots of actions to drive the others nuts in the game (ever want to taunt a government agent? Go for it!). Definitely worth a look, if not a purchase."

      "Overlord 2 is a pretty decent game. There aren't that many villain games on PC for sure, but the biggest problem I had when playing overlord 2 is....it failed to capture the magic of the first one. I'd only really recommend playing this if you played #1. The first is a far superior game, the combat was interesting, unique, intuitive, and never really been done before. The second fails to expand upon this, and quite frankly is only good as a sequel, not by itself. It's a decent suggestion, I've played it and enjoyed it, but there are better, more interesting options out there."
