I've played it, it certainly seems like there is. I do have quite a low threshold for what counts as "micromanagement", though....

In general, I like games where I have to think, not where the victor is basically the guy who can click fastest, which is how Starcraft always seemed (although not as bad as some games).

no, it's not a click to win game, it's a strategy game, there's a lot of strategy, what you're thinking of is the zerg rush, that's the way their race works. quick build, and borg like.

Well, Zerg rushing is an example of that, yes, but the way the game is played seems to be very rushy in general.

I guess it's just the impression I got, maybe because of the people I played it with. Also, like I said, I'm very adverse to games which require a lot of clicking, because I'm not very quick at it....

it's not, not unless that's the strategic manuver you choose, you'd like the protoss they are slow but powerful.

I did usually play Protoss when we played it, yeah.

We used to play it at LAN parties, but it's quite a long time since we stopped playing it, and I can't remember exactly why we did. Possibly I'm just mis-remembering somewhat....

Yeah, I know. Like I said, I did tend to play Protoss (or sometimes Terran), although I mostly used to spam carriers....

Digimon is a better franchise in world building, characters and anime, but Pokémon takes the cake in gaming. Digimon games are okay, but not awesome.

Yeah, the Digimon games can be pretty hit or miss. Even if the main games are somewhat formulaic, there's a reason the Pokemon franchise has lasted as long as it has, and with as minimal changes to the basic formula that it has. :) Some of the spinoff games are pretty fun too, like Pokemon Conquest for instance. Digimon has a special place in my heart too though, even if for the first 4 seasons of the anime (I think 3 is the best though :) ).

As for me, I mostly play RPGs of some type, though I'm especially fond of Tactical RPGs, though I have absolutely no problems with turn based or action RPGs. :D I like stuff like Harvest Moon as well, or fun platformers or fighting games as well. :D I'm into all sorts of things. :3 ...We should probably set up some sort of casual Melty Blood Tourney at some point, that might be pretty fun. :3

It would seem so. :D I'm not too surprised, since Season 3 is well written and very entertaining to watch, especially for what's considered a kid's show.  ;D

I like to play a lot of styles, but RPGs are my favorites. I also love strategy games (such as AoE, Warcraft, SWGB). I've never had a console, so everything I played come from emulators, and what my computer can handle, so, pretty much Zsnes, GBA and PJ64 are what the majority of the games I played are in.

I've already played the whole series of Megaman X, including Zero and ZX. Castlevania is also cool, but I've only played three for GameBoy (Circle of the Moon, Aria of Sorrow and the one with Just and Maxim). I liked them all A LOT, I've done like 8 runs in each one, since I remember util now!
