For all do gaming “addicts”, there is no end to the long list of strategy games that can be downloaded on the PC. To add to the ordeal of the gamers, almost all companies continuously keep launching newer and updated version of the highly popular games. So if you are someone like me, there is a very good chance that you are PC is packed with almost every strategy game that is available. Of course, it gives you the liberty to explore as much as you can, but if you want to just play what is best available in the market but do not know where to begin, here is some help for you.
Crusader Kings II
The game that deserves a mention at the very beginning is Crusader Kings II. Yes, it does require you to manage and run a kingdom, but it also requires your decision making skills on various other matters (read: matters of heart) like marriage and affairs etc. This makes this game much more interesting at so many levels.
Endless Legend is one game every gamer must try. Some people compare it to civilization which is kind of true. But the level of genius in this game is super high. The game flaunts a stupendous user interface and the how game takes every twist and turn is also fabulous. Inarguably, it is one of the best games available on the market.
Company of Heroes
Company of Heroes is one of those strategy games which set the benchmark so high that even their own sequel fails to match them. It can be considered to be a classic and yet it does not get old somehow. The game has a slow pace (not to be judged as boring) and requires tact and presence of mind to play through its various levels.
Total War series
Total War series has many dedicated loyalists with people loving various games in the series. Shogun 2 is one of the most popular games of the series as the entire concept of the game is more focused. The game has much better functionality as well.
One of the games that have captured every gamer’s mind and heart since its launch, well mostly because it is considered to be a perfect game, is Homeworld. It was relaunched with better audio visuals, though the rest of the game was just the same. Who can blame the developers, the game was indeed perfect in the first place.
World in Conflict
World in Conflict is a must- have. For some, it is not a preferred choice but the game does have some pros. Though it does belong to a serious genre, it shifts fluidly between serious tactics and minor reactions of the user. At some point, you may find some things about the game a little goofy also. All in all, world in Conflict can give you a good break from some serious brainstorming while playing more serious strategy games.
The list includes some of the popular games of the recent times and they have a reputation of keeping their users hooked for long.
