Ok I started drinking (beer) about 20 minutes ago and made the mistake of perusing the GOG sale...somebody stop me
I'd never try stopping you drinking beer so you must mean perusing GoG games.  I just put Hegemony III in my cart but haven't pulled to trigger.  I enjoyed the first one but got distracted by the next shiny game and never got back to it.  Just like I bought Wizards and Warlords last week and may not get around to playing until the dev is done with it.

Listen to this code!
All the titles of your games?
Only a haiku.
ICEBREAKER THESIS CHRONOLOGY! -- Victor Suvorov's Stalin Grand Strategy theory, in chronological order. Lots and lots of order...

Dawn of Armageddon -- a narrative AAR for Dawn of War: Soulstorm: Ultimate Apocalypse: The Hunt Begins: Insert Joke Here!

Survive Harder! In the grim darkness of the bowl there is only, um, Amazons. And tentacles and midgets. Not remotely what you're thinking! ...okay, maybe a little remotely.

I'm pretty sure I saw Battle Brothers on there.  I had never even considered it until Al's post.

^ Well worth checking out, awesome tactical battles and great emergent sandbox storytelling.  It's basically like Mount and Blade but with tactical combat, and the worlds are procedurally generated but I'm always fairly impressed with how they turn out.  The game is hard as balls so consider trying it on Beginner first.

It makes no difference what men think of war, said the judge.  War endures.  As well ask men what they think of stone.  War was always here.  Before man was, war waited for him.  The ultimate trade awaiting its ultimate practitioner.  That is the way it was and will be.  That way and not some other way.
- Cormac McCarthy, Blood Meridian


If they made nothing but WWII games, I'd be perfectly content.  Hypothetical matchups from alternate history 1980s, asymmetrical US-bashes-some-3rd world guerillas, or minor wars between Upper Bumblescum and outer Kaboomistan hold no appeal for me.

I guess it's sort of nice that the word "tactical" seems to refer to some kind of seriousness during your moments of mental clarity.

So in my cart @ GOG I now have:

- Comanche vs.  Hokum 1.19
- GreedFall 16.99
- Observer 20.99
- A Plague Tale 11.24
- Hegemony Gold, Wars of Ancient Greece 3.74
- Ghostrunner 14.99

Total: 69.14

No doubt I will take a few out of the cart and also check out Battle Brothers...

Fanatical has Distant Worlds Universe for $5.99 for the next ~17 hours.  Great deal if you don't already have it.
