If you dig into older topics, you may find some "favorite heroes" etc discussions from which you may be able to extract some opinions.

Okay, there we go.


2D game
Name:Heroes III.
Rate the following between 1-7 (In which 1 is the best.)

Storyline: 3
Gameplay: 2
Graphics: 2
Overal: 2

Why did you choose to play it?
A comrade of mine brought it, to play hotseat. And I liked the gameplay (mechanic), it's (relatively) fast paced game, now more with HDmod.

Will you play it again?
Yes from time to time. There are many mods and even the vanilla is having its own charm.

Choose a 3D heroes game: As no player of H5 I can choose only H6.
Rate the following between 1-7 (In which 1 is the best.)
Storyline: Very funny. 2
Gameplay: Could be better. 4
Graphics: Hmm 2
Overal: 4 No replaybility

Why did you choose to play it?
Random series attempt. Lured with nice music and graphics.

Will you play it again?
Eh, no. There's no reason.

Which game will you crown as the best strategy game of all time? (It doesn't have to be a heroes game.)
Still waiting for, yet most close were Might of Magic (by Microprose) and Heroes3.

What have you felt like you gained by playing it?
Different patterns how to solve situations. Quick and right decisions.

Why do you like strategy games in general?
You need to plan in advance, more than one step. As well. You need to improvise for not everything is granted.

Well why not.

2D game:
Name: Heroes of Might and Magic 2
Rate the following between 1-7 (In which 1 is the best.):
Storyline: ? (I honestly don't remember much of the HoMM 2 storyline, I was so young then)
Gameplay: 2
Graphics: 3 (by the standards of those days)
Overall: 2

Why did you choose to play it? I had a friend who had it. I watched it and got interested.
Will you play it again? No. It's just way too old.

Choose a 3D heroes game: MMH6
Rate the following between 1-7 (In which 1 is the best.)
Storyline: 7
Gameplay: 5
Graphics: 2
Overall: 4

Why did you choose to play it? I'd played the other Heroes games so ...
Will you play it again? No. Too tedious, AI is crap, and the game just isn't interesting enough.

-Which game will you crown as the best strategy game of all time? (It doesn't have to be a heroes game.) Pokemon netbattle, and related games (e.g. Kongai).

-What have you felt like you gained by playing it? Some fun moments? Some mind-reading too.
-Why do you like strategy games in general? Generally, because winning or losing is dependent on your play choices, not on reflexes and the like.

I'm a hypocrite because I suggested that all life is sacred and should not be wasted without good reason.

2D game:
Name:Heroes of Might and Magic III
Rate the following between 1-7 (In which 1 is the best.):
Storyline: 2
Gameplay: 1
Graphics: 1 (for the time)
Overall: 1

Why did you choose to play it? Brand name recognition; I enjoyed Heroes 2, and the new creatures sounded cool.
Will you play it again? Yes; for nostalgia if nothing else.

Choose a 3D heroes game: Heroes 5
Rate the following between 1-7 (In which 1 is the best.)
Storyline: 4
Gameplay: 2
Graphics: 2
Overal: 3

Why did you choose to play it? I was glad that the Heroes franchise wasn't dead after 3do went down.
Will you play it again? Maybe. The story didn't quite have the sense of humor that underlay previous Heroes games, and story is large determiner of replayability for me.

-Which game will you crown as the best strategy game of all time? (It doesn't have to be a heroes game.) Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri

-What have you felt like you gained by playing it? Cultural exposure and some scientific knowledge, as well as some really cool lines to quote.

-Why do you like strategy games in general? If I may limit the question, it's turn-based strategy I really enjoy. I like being able to sit back and think through my options.
Far too many people speak their minds without first verifying the quality of their source material.

-Why do you like strategy games in general: To be honest I'm total crap at strategy games, but hell they're so much fun, I love to feel in charge and leading my troops into a total victory, knowing how I play will handle consequences even though I lose a lot.

Storyline: 4
Gameplay: 1
