I own a SMVE for almost a year now and I didn't even notice half the stuff they complained about in the SDTM video till after I watched it and now I do notice some annoying things but I still like the game. SMVE can definitely be hard to know exactly what to do at times that's for sure. I'm not a super tournament player so I don't try and figure out every single thing there is to know about a game I'm a casual beer drinker and flipper flapper I don't know half the rules to my own games.
Met is just not for me as far as owning it for home use I definitely play it on location but the music isn't for me.
TWD and GoT are both great games I want to add to our collection, hoping they Vault one of them this year possibly with better art. As they are now it would be a tough decision both would be on top of SMVE on the code side but SMVE looks Great and is still a fun shooting game.
Is Star Trek not an option? I just picked up a Pro Vault and love it and would put it at the top of this list, just a total package game for me with theme, sounds, call outs and code.
