Played my first MM game in 1987 when the title was pretty new. Played my first Heroes= game when it was new as well.
I teach for a living now. I'm also a husband and father - a family who loves to play this game in the hot seat together.
Ranking the versions using the current tier system: Champion - H3, Elite - H2, H2 & H5. Core - H1, H4 and H6.
After 200+ hours with H7, I'll rank the games (with the caveat that H7 could and likely will move in the rankings by the time it is "complete". 1. H3 2. H2 3. H5. 4. H7. 5. H1 6. H6 7. H4
