Panzer General 2 is a strategy game. Look at the screenshot of this 1997 classic. It's gorgeous in it's 2D sprite glory. Yet, the shitheads of game design now consider it ugly. Sad indeed when 3D invades strategy. I even read in PC game magazine and websites a similar lamentation of this vile development. It's the old enemy of free thought: Dumbing down for the masses.
The masses are the worst dictator of all.
