Good Strategy Games


#1

I’ve been thinking about buying a game and can’t think of any good ones. Got any ideas?


#2

If you’re ready for a bit of a learning curve, I would suggest Crusader Kings 2. It’s different from other games out there but well worth it. I only play it casually and I have close to 200 hours on Steam. You might want to also try it for the Game of Thrones mod. It’s pretty well done.

@Andros
I played the demo and it seems quite interesting.


#4

Crusader Kings 2 definitely. Europa Universalis series and Total War series (except Rome 2) are also worth taking a look at. Victoria 2 is also a good strategy game, but it focuses more on economy than anything else, and as such can be a bit difficult to really get into.

@Goshman
I’ve played eu3 &4 but hated 4. I’ve never played the total war series. Is it true that you can command battles in real time?


#6

Yes, and if your machine can handle it, the real-time battles can be really massive at times. It’s pretty awesome.


#7

I highly suggest any Total War games ( i would wait a bit before buying rome 2, still a great game though) I would suggest Shogun total war or empire total war.


#8

Medieval total war 2 is pretty good two especially with the kingdoms expansion which you can mod to lord of the rings


#9

If there is a steam sale I would recommended Civ 5 the complete edition. I wouldn’t get it you can’t afford the complete edition honestly. Vannilia Civ 5 is just missing to many good features, that G&K and BNW add.


#10

I still play Age of Empires II

How come Command & Conquer was not the first to be mentioned? Sure, it’s old but it’s absolutely fantastic. I recommend the first decade of C&C games, the ones that came after are okay, but nowhere near as good. Except for C&C4 which is absolute garbage.

I also recommend checking out the Mount & Blade games, had a bit of fun with those.
