Back in the day, I adored a certain type of game. Mechwarrior: Mercenaries (2 or 4, didn't matter), Missionforce Cyberstorm - these are games where you built your squad, chose your missions, got paid, then upgraded your squad to continue. I could play them over and over, because each time I built a different type of squad and tackle the game a different way. It also made the battles intense, because when you lost a unit, it hurt your bottom line.
I enjoyed X-Com; Enemy Unknown, but besides that I can't find a game this generation that has these qualities. Anyone have any suggestions? --- "Your superior intellects are no match for our puny weapons" - Kang

All Fire Emblem games.
not sure if being on the PC board disqualifies them from being mentioned but they do fit the description pretty well --- Magikoopa Security Force: Defend against the Shy Guys! Download the demo (offsite): http://www.mfgg.net/index.php?act=resdb¶m=02&c=2&id=29243
I picked the PC board because this type of game is found more often on PC, but for the record I own the following systems;
PC PS3 Xbox 360 Vita Wii (although I hardly use this one) --- "Your superior intellects are no match for our puny weapons" - Kang

I second Fire Emblem. Awakening was such a good game. Final Fantasy tactics is similar, although a bit complicated at times, and can be quite difficult. It sounds a bit silly, but I guess you could say the Ultimate Team mode on FIFA (well, any sports game really, but I personally like football. Or..."soccer" -_-) Pokemon too. Plenty of variety, I personally loved the old mechwarriors, and enjoy similar games where you build up a small squad/team. Always build up a bond with them! --- (GT: II Lazer II) - (PSN: ME GOOSTA) - (Steam ID: lilylazer666) (3DS FC: 4339-3035-7150)

Out of the consoles you own, the Wii is the only one to have a Fire Emblem game: Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn. It came out in 2007, so you should be able to find it cheap. --- Magikoopa Security Force: Defend against the Shy Guys!

Fire Emblem is pretty brutal, though. --- Copyright free literature available at http://www.gutenberg.org/wiki/Main_Page... otherwise known as Tex-Mex
