Do you think the Total War series will ever end? Or do you think it will just continue going on and on and on?
It will stop, it cant really go into world war as they didnt stand up in lines and take shots firing at each other. Yet they could go into phrehistoric times and have cave men with t-rex's as elephant units in groups of 2 and sabetooth tigers in packs of 5 ridden by cavemen.
(before anyone calls me a idiot i know cavemen didnt ride on sabertooth tigers and i know dino's werent around at the same time as us, but im throwing ideas about!)
They could also expand into movies like lord of the rings total war, or starwars total war, the battle of naboo was done in a way which the total war way as was the battle at geinosis and they are the only army v army battle we see so im guessing they are all like it.
And fantasy, warhammer :s who am i kidding it could go on for ever if they wanted it to.
I donít know if anyone remembers Car Wars but it was a real game (non-PC). Was a lot of fun too with many options for upgrading your vehicles with weapons. Dice and paper game with miniatures. Forget the inventors of that game but met them at a GENCON back in the 80ís. Also wasnít there a game box type of game with dueling cars??? I want to say I actually played it once had a wicked IceCream truck that launched missiles or something. But the original CarWars was really fun. I could see the armies now in TW; 20 Chevy Vans loaded with heat seeking missiles in one stack against a stack of Porches equipped with scud missiles and 50 cal. Machineguns. Cool.
Anyway seriously if TW keeps upgrading and expanding the system they could conceivably never stop producing a new TW game. Eventually I would like to see them expand so we get the whole world map from 1030 to 1700 or so that would be the mother of all strategy games from a Total War perspective. Maybe one day they will see a market for such a game and make it.
