After starting the Fantasy discussion with my previous post on the call of Fantasy, I started wondering about something I've always heard but never experienced... is Fantasy better than 40k?
Now I know, the best game is the one you prefer to play and all that jazz, but I've often heard that Fantasy is what gamers graduate to from 40k. Almost like 40k is what gets you started and then Fantasy is what you play when you get serious about the hobby.
Now I've never played Fantasy and I've never even watched a game play out, but I can't help but to wonder if there is any truth to this. So I ask those of you who have played both, is one "better" than the other?
Have any of you out there "graduated" to Fantasy from 40k?
Is Fantasy (even with it's new edition) a better game than 40k in terms of overall balance, mechanics, rules and general playability?
I'm interested in seeing if this is true. If I were a betting man, I would bet that Fantasy has maybe a better (meaning tighter written, less bugs, etc.) set of rules than 40k but more involved and not just move and shoot like 40k can be sometimes.
It seems like Fantasy has a bit more strategy involved in it along with requiring some real planning if you want to have any chance of winning or just doing well and living past Turn 2. I could be wrong though, like I said, I've never played the game. All that being said, I've posted lots of questions here, if you're someone who has experience with this, please chime in and help clarify this for me.
Who knows, I may gradute one day.
