Carl Williams writes, "Okay, I am a retro gamer from the old days. I have been playing since the days of Pong into the Atari 2600 era through to today. When the crash happened I just thought it was a resetting of the industry- it kind of was. During my younger years I was a huge fan of the action games, not only because that was really all we had either. When I got my first taste of turn based strategy role playing though, I was almost instantly hooked. Sure, I had the usual awkward stage of “what is this?” then after keeping on and pushing forward, I figured out the basics and started really enjoying the style. One of my earliest memories of this style of game was back on the Commodore 64 but I can’t remember the title of the game. The earliest popular title, in this genre, I remember enjoying was Shining Force on the Sega Genesis. Since then I have followed the genre through Vandal Hearts (Konami/PSOne), Shining Force II/CD (Sega/Genesis and Sega CD) and of course, Final Fantasy Tactics (I playing FFTA on the GBA a ton). Now I am more of an Android gamer and well, I learned early on there are not a lot of options in this genre on Google’s OS. I did find a few and they are listed here."
