Selective Creation: Strategically Build the Best 25 Strategy Games List!



  • @Brannox We should absolutely have a "card" KYB one day. Even if we gotta dig deep for minigames like Triple Triad. Card games are way too underrated.



  • Would the battle of Fort Condor be eligible from FF7? :P



  • Civilization II
    Chess
    Civilization IV
    Heroes III of Might and Magic
    Go
    Master of Magic
    Command & Conquer
    Crusader Kings 2
    Age of Mythology
    Fire Emblem Awakening
    StarCraft
    Victoria 2
    Final Fantasy Tactics (PSone)
    Age of empires 2
    Homeworld (remastered, I guess. If you want me to pick a "version")
    Age of Wonders
    Advance Wars: Dual Strike

    Advance Wars is amazing, and this one took everything great about the first two and crammed it all together, also adding in the dual CO mechanics and two battles happening simultaneously. It's bloody beautiful.



  • Civilization II
    Chess
    Civilization IV

    The fact that this improved version of an already fantastic game hasn't been brought up yet is a travesty in itself.

    I'm not the biggest strategy person, but I absolutely loved this game back in the day!

    Also, random props to Brannox for continuing to make these. Even if I should take a month (or 4, oops lol) away from the forums, these have remained.



  • @kirkking2000 Thank you! But to be honest, my ideas are winding down. I still have a few to go, but these threads (run by me at least) have their days numbered.

    That one also deserves to be here, if only for its awesome soundtrack.

    Simple and minimalist, but makes you think two steps ahead at all times. Fun, low-key game.



  • @Sazime Damn it, now I'm mad I didn't think of this. I've been playing it every day for like 2 months.



  • @TokyoSlim Right? It's a great go-to.
