I ask because the Total War series, once the greatest in the world to me has just about died with its trend of unrealistic battles, catering to kiddies and now the final straw, NO MODDING TOOLS. It took me awhile to come to terms with this but I finally have and now ask you all if you are aware of any Total War like games that are being made by other developers. I know of XIV Century game that came out a few years ago, but that is it and it was fairly limited in scope, ie no grand campaign. Hopefully CA will get competition in the future because frankly they need a good kick in the ass from other developers. Thanks.
