This is, of course, in addition to their normal descent into panicky madness, poor habits, disease, and associated traumas both physical and mental.

In the 00s tactics genre went through a long dark age with few releases for fans to try. More recently, there have been a number of indie successors to the likes of Tactics Ogre and Final Fantasy: Tactics, as well as major revivals for XCOM and Fire Emblem. It also does not seem to have simply been a phase. A number of upcoming releases in the genre suggest opportunities for tactical combat will only expand in the coming years.
