The Bargain Bin - Medieval: Total War

I found this at Wal-Mart for $9.95, and it looks like Amazon has it for as cheap as $8.99. This is the second installment of the Total Wars series which started with Shogun: Total War. The best thing about these games are they that are two games in one; Total War allows you to either play a turn-based strategy game without doing any actual fighting of your troops (the computer will determine the winner of battles based on various factors much like a Romance of the Three Kingdoms game) or actually command your troops in real time.

Medieval: Total War is also a godsend for older machines, as even with a ton of troops on the map most machines will be able to still play with very little slowdown, if any at all.

I highly recommend the game.
