It's an age-old question that will only get more and more intense in the coming year as the Xbox 360 is in full swing and the PS3 and Revolution release. Which is better? What system is right for me? I would suggest both systems if you can possibly do it.
Computer gaming is more expensive now days so you must make the right choices in the equipment and games you select. Computer gaming is best for Real Time Strategy (RTS) games.
Others are First Person Shooters (FPS), Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Games (MMORG), Flight Simulation games, and Point and Click Adventure games.
Warhammer Mark of Chaos is the eagerly awaited RTS (Real Time Strategy) game by Namco Bandai. The game is fairly simple to get used to (after about half an hour you will probably be used to most of the basic controls)
Basically, its mostly drag and click but there are some useful rotating/zooming options (all explained in the tutorial, which is a must for first-time players) and if a quick view reset is required, all you have to do is tap the Space Bar on your keyboard.
Both the Empire and the Chaos campaigns are very similar, you move along a pre-determined battle path and fight battle after battle, meet and help a besieged town, duel an enemy hero and defeat and encampment of enemies.
Ninety-Nine Nights (or as its affectionately known, N3), is the latest in a stream of action titles from Phantagram, their most famous franchise being the mix between RTS and action, Kingdom Under Fire.
Here is the most complete list that I could gather on real time strategy games. In no particular order they are: Act of War, A Force More Powerful, Age of Empires series, Age of Kings, Age of Mythology, Alien Nations, Ancient Art of War, Armies of Exigo.
