Kill Your Babies!: Kill Off (the) Strategy!



  • Are these threads strategic? Does that apply to these games? Does any of this matter? Regardless, it's time to kill off strategy games!

    As always, just in case there are new players, here are the rules:

    Rule #1: When you make a kill, give your reason why you are killing. Just taking it out isn't all that inspiring. Whether you truly dislike it, you strike out of revenge, you feel that there are other important titles that should have made it, or you have legitimate critiques, explaining your kill is necessary to validate its death. Yes, even to those of you who kill because they're good (Because that makes sense)

    Rule #2: Please keep the updated list for the benefit of other players. Cross through your kill to identify what's been chosen.

    Rule #3: You may kill another game after only four other people have made a kill OR if 12 hours have passed from the last overall kill (not necessarily your own). This should be plenty of time for others to get involved.

    Rule #4: If you fail to give a reason, make a 2nd kill without allowing the time to pass/proper amount of players a turn, or if there is an unforeseen issue up for potential review, your kill may not be recognized. This rule is subjective to the situation and hopefully will not be implemented.

    Rule #5: Per normal, we will have a straw poll for the final two. Please vote for the one you want to win, not lose.

    Let me know if you have any questions. Your kills are your own, so be ruthless, uncompromising, and most importantly:

    HAVE FUN!!!

    Good RPG, not so good strategy game. Didn't like how the two genres mixed.

    Don't get me wrong, chess is probably one of the most influential games ever created across any genre. That said, in a video game forum and in a list so densely populated with great video games, it feels like a cop-out to let a board game win. You could argue that there are a lot of iterations of video game chess players, but there's no denying that this still sticks out like a sore thumb.

    Can't see how this is special as a video game.

    Can't see how this is special as a video game.

    It's without question the oldest continuously played strategy game in the history of mankind. There's around 60 million players currently worldwide. Also, it's influence on video games in general is underrated. :)

    I don't think we need two Civ games on the list, and I think IV was better than II.



  • @TokyoSlim I didn't say as a game, but as a video game

    Meaning that i don't believe a port of a phyaical game to vg form has that much merit

    I don't feel like Populous aged well, but I it was a great strategy game on the SNES. Just not quite good enough to survive this list.

    Is meh game, Better games deserve to be here. Also why can't you see their feet!



  • @CGamor7 Essentially he's claiming he's removing a video game version of Go from the list that was never even nominated or mentioned? I mean, it's fine and he can kill Go for whatever reason he wants - but it's a nonsense reason.

    I refuse to participate in these killings based on principle. Have some class, you monsters.
