804th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: PC Year of Release: 1997 Developer: Bungie Publisher: Bungie/Eidos Interactive Next on the list of games I’ve played before, the 3D elements of Myth: The Fallen Lords made it memorable to me. While I knew the likes of Command & Conquer and Warcraft, having a rotating camera felt […]

787th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up/Strategy Platform: PC/Playstation 3/Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Codemasters Publisher: Codemasters I’m starting to feel more apathetic towards these military shooters. They’re big and popular, but while some Call of Duty games can sort of manage to draw me in, the first iteration of Operation Flashpoint […]

786th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Ensemble Studios Publisher: Microsoft Game Studios I’ve played some console strategy games before, they lean more towards the tactical – something like Final Fantasy Tactics or Valkyria Chronicles, where you have a predefined set of units that you control individually. Larger […]

773rd played so far Genre: Life Simulation/Strategy Platform: PC Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Maxis Publisher: Electronic Arts It sounds like a Molyneux-like pitch, a game where you start off as a bacteria-like organism, evolve and grow a civilization until you reach space. It was, however, proposed by the other sim genre great, Will Wright […]

767th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: Various Year of Release: 2012 Developer: Firaxis Games Publisher: 2K Games I’ve played the original X-Com series for the blog, including the city focused sequel, and while I still loved the basic formula, I struggled with the interface and difficulty of the original.

758th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up/Strategy Platform: Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Lobotomy Software/Snowblind Studios I remember playing a turn based tank shooter called Scorched Earth when I was younger, a game where you move tanks across a plan and shoot them with different weapons – the latter offering some strategy […]

757th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: ZX Spectrum Year of Release: 1986 Developer: Julian Gollop Publisher: Firebird Software I’ve been staring at the Rebelstar series for a while.

726th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: PC Year of Release: 2004 Developer: Relic Entertainment Publisher: THQ When it comes to the universe, I’ve always been a fantasy player. There’s some interesting bits about the 40k universe, but nothing in it ever really tempted me. Sadly, until Total War: Warhammer, it hasn’t been greatly represented […]

712th played so far Genre: Action/Strategy Platform: SNES Year of Release: 1990 Developer: Quintet Publisher: Enix I played Actraiser a long time ago, probably by getting through some random SNES games when I had a chance to – I don’t really know what attracted me to it, but I connected with it.

701st played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: PC Year of Release: 2006 Developer: Zee-3 Digital Publishing It’s getting harder to pick out indie titles for the first of the fifty and I’m sure I’ve skipped one or two already. I managed to dig one out from the pile though, multiplayer focused strategy game Naked War. […]
