First person shooter and strategy games

See also

I am an all out first person shooter kinda guy. There is nothing like going to a video game store like GameStop, getting a first person shooter like Modern Warfare, and going home and playing it until your eyeballs fall out of your head from sleep deprivation.

However, it wasn't until two years ago that I got interested in strategy games. It was a time where no good games were coming out, and I was getting bored with the games that I was playing at home, and I came across a new release called Sid Meiers Civilization. I thought, what the hey? I'll get it and try it, worst case scenario, I'll trade it in and get something else.

Needless to say, I got hooked. Now I'm definitely into strategy games full fledged! So I start looking for new strategy games that I could play and I found one that I really liked coming out pretty soon called Stronghold 3.
