Do you like to get close in to the action, or do you prefer the view from the top? Why?

Tactical is cool, but I think it's also the most difficult to do well. And so there are more good games to choose from at the other scales.

I enjoy tactical for face to face gaming. For solitaire games or something that is going to be set up and played by email-I prefer strategic games as it is easier to take a break from the action and return to it days or even weeks later.
