Best game ever? What else should I try?

Hi there FireFighters,
Long time no contribution from me. I have been nudged by a TV show. I was watching "Futurama" the other night and it had a little tribute to some electronic games of the past. Do you remember the early Atari tank games and Asteroids? Asteroids had a tiny little spacecraft represented by a triangle with an even tinier set of pulsing triangles that were the rocket exhaust. The asteroids were just irreguler polygons which, when hit, broke up into a cluster of little twigs. This brought to me with a rush what is so good about Firefight. It has a meaningful amount of detail and NO MORE!!

In contrast, one of the first PC games I ever bought was an Asteroids knockoff, in which someone showed their mastery of graphics programming by having asteroids with craters on them, shading, shadows, rivets on the spacecraft etc. The problem was that to show all this detail, all the objects had to be a lot larger in relation to the playing area than in the original arcade game. This increased the level of difficulty to make the game almost unplayable, especially for slow guys like me.

I have been doing a bit of reseach on other games to play, and have seen Close Combat described favourably on a few sites. I have seen a few screen shots and . . . it seems to have that simiar problem of excessive detail, consequently objects are way out of scale. Opponents on the Russian steppe look like they are 20 metres apart when they should be 500 metres apart, if not more.

It appears that FF is about the best game I have ever played so far. What else should I try?
