Which do you prefer in strategy games (and RPG battles etc.), square or hexagon grid?

I prefer the square grid honestly. I know hexagons have their perks, but.... A square grid is easier on my eyes and makes it easier to contemplate things for me.

Me too, I really dislike hexagon. Though in some cases I'll rather have flat hexagon than isometric square.

I don't usually notice as dumb as that sounds.

I think I'm with sloo on this one. I have never really paid much attention. O_O

I like squares myself, it makes predicting moves a little easier and there's already so many other things im trying to keep track of along with role playing as well. Im sure hex has some awesome points but it just seems like one less variable to keep track of for me. Having said that I'll play on whatever grid the DM lays out. As long as we're using a grid in happy!

Currently playing dnd with someone that doesn't think getting a grid matters, they won't even draw the scenes/areas on paper.. so frustrating
