CM turned me into a WWII freak.

Me too, I couldn't tell the difference between a Panzer III and a Tiger when I first started playing CMFI.. I know embarrassing right?

Now every moment of spare time which is not spent either playing (or editing) CM, is invested in either watching WW2 documentaries or reading about WW2 history & unit tactics.

My favorite? The one I just played. 

For example, I'm doing some top, top, tippy-top secret Beta stuff. Mum's the word and all that. Examining [redacted], I found my eye kept wandering back to the brass ejecting out of the weapon, and near-perfect dispersion of the explosive rounds as they went downrange. Magic, that was.

Yep. Before I got into CMBO, I had a rudimentary (if that) knowledge of WWII weapons and armor and such. And man, I just went apes*** after I started playing. But a big part of the fun, part of what makes it so engrossing, is the discovery; learning about all the weapon systems, vehicles, and troop types. Having all these things that are alien to you open up a new world of curiosity, and send you seeking knowledge in directions you'd never thought you'd go. It's a blast, and one of the reasons you'll never hear me say I am bored. There's just too much to learn about, to get bored.

And I stopped a long time ago, thinking certain theaters or time periods wouldn't interest me. CMBB cured me of that. I wasn't interested at all in Soviet era WWII when they announced the game. And then wham! it was CMBO all over again, this time with stuff that was really alien to me. Damn, man, now I am not sure there isn't any military history that WON'T interest me. From Shogun Japan, to the Eastern Front,  to Carthage vs Rome, to Napoleon, there's something for every mood. My biggest problem is I have too many interests pulling me. I picked up Pike & Shot last night for 10 bucks on Steam, so now I have another area to explore. Love it, man. LOVE IT!

 

Okay, I'll shut up now!

You're evil...like Satanic crotch crabs, on a man with no arms.

The correct question is 'which CM is better in WW2 and Modern era" since they play quite differently.

Can't say much about the WW2 since I own only CMBN (although Big Bundle is richest of all content-wise atm) - but for modern era it's CMBS hands down. CMSF and CM Afghanistan have their quirks and character and the former is just pure content porn - but gameplay- and difficulty-wise Black Sea is where it's at.

So Black Sea for modern era, and what's everybody thinking the best is for WW2 era?

Perversely I like CM:A the best among the modern titles (TBH it's probably my favourite overall).....It's an odd and quirky game that categorically won't be developed further, but it plays really well and can be a lot of fun.  It's also very cheap.  ;)

CMSF for best modern. :D Especially once CMSF 2 is out.  Frankly my favorite all around, but if I had to choose best ww 2.  Damn that would be hard.

Really I am kind of in the same boat with c3k.  ask me next month, I am likely to give a different answer.  Last night I was messing with "A muddy affair" in CMFB and having a blast.
