Does anyone else here play any of the Heroes of Might and Magic / Might & Magic: Heroes games? And if so, which is your favourite? I've spammed this question enough in other people's AMA threads over the years... time for a definitive poll! :p:


(Cover for the first game)

For me, it has to be HoMM3 - so many different towns and creatures, eight in the core game, nine with expansions. Compare that with HoMM4's six. :no: I like the 2D map with its board game look and feel, and again, 3 offers so many more buildings to visit on the maps than any other. And it comes with an amazing map editor that lets you make your own. :coma: The campaigns are great too. I'll admit, it was the version I grew up playing, so there's a huge amount of nostalgia attached. There are balance issues that mean it's not perfect. But, it's just so much 'bigger' than the games that came before and (sadly) after it.


(Rampart from HoMM3)

2nd place is close between HoMM2, which is just a little bit more basic but has most of the same features I loved from 3, and HoMM5, which has the lovely 3D towns and (IMO) the best music.

:tumble: Not a popular franchise? For anyone who is interested in checking it out/expanding their collection, however, the first five games are on sale as a bundle on GOG right now. :yay:

Totally different formula from the rest of the games IIRC, but my god it was good.
