last rts game i played was red alert 2 which was a decade ago, but i did try the demo for total war shogun and my god that was a nightmare, i cant remember if there was a difficulty setting, i think there was and i picked the easiest one and still got my ass kicked. these total war games look so fun though especially the tw warhammer games, so is there total war game for a loser like me?

Shogun. The sega one. Its a great starting point and always on steam sales. They dont get any easier im afraid

Honestly warhammer is one is a lot more punishing and adds too much to keep track of if you are new to it, magic, hero's, ect.

I'd say shogun 2 as well, best showing for the series for visceral fun and would work as a learner for warhammer.

I'd say warhammer. It's the most fun i've had with a total war game ever. I wasn't really a big fan of the total war series, I am a fan of warhammer though.

I also say Shogun 2.

Starting with the Rise of the Samurai expansion might be a little more forgiving since it features fewer unit types IIRC. (Fall of the Samurai being the opposite)

Rome. Simple, cheap, enthralling.
ARGH! Someone gave me some goggles and a spork.
I don't know what the goggles do, but I'm gouging my eyes out with the spork!

Whichever time period you are more interested in. The formula and design is similar despite that. My favorites are the medieval and Rome ones.

I'd say Warhammer, it has a lot of tutorials available online and the campaign gameplay is fairly simplified.

But honestly, pick whatever game you like, there is no Total War game that is noob-friendly.

The original Rome. Selfishly because it was my first and honestly, I think it's a good starter. Just go from there to the next games in the series after that.

Rome 1 will teach you the basic bones of how to control stuff and deal with your economy, but it's super basic and easy...which might be a good thing. Shogun 2 is the best one but it can be tricky and the AI can be ruthless.
