give total war a shot - which one tho

never played,  on steam for little money,  which one to buy I shall?
Yes, I know from whence I came! Discontented as a flame, Upon myself I live and glow. All I grasp like lightning flashes, All I leave behind is ashes
Flame I am - that much I know!

Rome, the first one. Or Shogun 2, it's probably the most well rounded of them all, lacking only in troop/culture variety of the other games.

Medieval 2 was my favourite as well. It doesn't even look that dated and the AI is functional.

Shogun 2 was fun, but there was a cheat tactic for the AI where they spawn armies out of there ass

I care not, foolish mon-keigh!

Unlike the previous games, right? More likely, the AI cheating just wasn't so visible, because of the larger, more open world-maps and the larger number of territories each AI faction would be controlling.

Empire Total War was always my favorite. Epic line battles and great sea battles

They all have their pros and cons, but I think Medieval 2 is the best one to start with

Medieval 2 + Kingdoms datadisk.
Kingdoms for Mods cos best ones needs Kingdoms.
Without mods this game looks rather dated and vanilla is rather dull.
I liked Broken crescent, Third age total war, Stainless steel also Call of warhammer is nice.

Medieval 2 probably has the best mods of all the Total War games so far.
