New guy here! Very excited to be here. To start things off, I wanted to throw my suggestion in to the ring. I am nominating the sandbox rts/rpg based off of the lord of the rings book series, War in Middle Earth. The game allows you to control the events of the book series while also managing the armies that are clashing around the world to help pave the way for frodo and company to toss the ring into Mount Doom. It is inventive, colorful and allows for a lot of personal expression on how to play the game. You can follow the story as it was written or completely deviate and make some wild alterations to the history. It is an absolute blast.
