View Full Version : Different types of Strategy

I personally think there are different flavors of strategy games, and am curious what strategy games you guys like, so the question is:

What is your favorite strategy game, any platform, and what type of strategist are you?

In my opinon one of the best turn based strategy games came out a long time ago for TurboGrafx-16 called "Military Madness" (Nectaris on the PC-Engine). I said some other stuff about this game in one of the other threads and is also in "the challenge".

For real time strategy, Starcraft is one of the best (besides the lame tactics that eveyone uses once one person is successful at it, ie. ling rushes, carrier boys, nowadays zealot rushes, etc..)

Thanks Houzi.
I'll check out your challenge in the other thread.

My favorite (I think of it as a strategy game) is the Thief series for the PC; I also consider it to be a FPSn (first person sneaker).

Also, although there are very few games in the half realtime / half turn-based games, another of my favorites is Jagged Alliance 2.

I personally hope both of these make it to the big black box.

I forgot to add that I hope Prisoner of War has some good strategy worked in with the sneaking.

I like any game that has to do with world war 2 either turn based or real time. "X-com ufo defense" is also a pretty good game if yu havent already tried it.
