So I've made the basic pong, breakout, snake, etc games. I want to get into something else now, I have a 2d top-down RPG started, but I feel like I've bitten off a bit more than I can chew. Mostly because I can't figure out a good way to set up the items in the game(fiddled with component-entity, not too sure what other directions I can take it). What other game genre's would be a good idea to start working on? How would a basic RTS game work?
