F:ATties Five Favorites - Wargames

F:ATties Favorite Five is a series of forum threads, one per category, where every F:AT user can post their five favorite games in the appropriate category.

The threads will be sticky'd for future reference. So users are encouraged to update their lists using the EDIT function when they need to be changed. Therefore it would be preferable that posts commenting on someone else's list go somewhere else to make reading the lists easier as the thread gets longer, but that won't be enforced.

Lists don't need to be in any specific order. Its hard enough narrowing things down to five favorites. And obviously you can put less than five games, but please don't put more than five.

I'm not a serious history buff, so I tend to prefer war games with a fantasy or science-fiction theme. But I'm kind of old-school in the sense that I feel that a wargame should have a hex map. So though I love Nuclear War, I don't consider it a wargame.

1. Divine Right
2. Starship Troopers
3. Ogre
4. Squad Leader
5. Freedom in the Galaxy

And I think DoaM games should have their own category here. I bet that a lot of us have five favorite DoaM games.
