If it make your decision on what game to buy any easier,All three editions of Mechwarrior, and a few of the supplements. I love the game. It's got strategy, politics, some mysticism, and a million opportunities to roleplay. This is one of my favorite games, and I'm addicted in a way that will probably send me through a 12 step program sooner or later. If nothing else, the Battletech battle game is fun for passing away an hour or two.
