925th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: PC Year of Release: 1999 Developer: Relic Entertainment Publisher: Sierra Studios While I’ve played plenty of grand tactics games set in space – Galactic Civilizations and Sins of a Solar Empire come to mind, as well as Stellaris which I really need to dive further into. I don’t […]

920th played so far Genre: Action/Strategy Platform: Various Year of Release: 1989 Developer: Infogrames Publisher: Infogrames I remember reading quite a bit of Belgian comic Blauwbloezen (Les Tuniques Bleues, more recently published as Bluecoats in English) when I was younger. I remember really enjoying them then, and while I’m sure there are a number of […]

908th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: Various Year of Release: 1988 Developer: Realtime Games Publisher: Rainbird I’ve been in control of planes and cars for this lists, very immersive mechs and various different spaceships. One thing that I don’t think I’ve touched, however, are aircraft carriers and similar massive ships. That’s all about to […]

898th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: Various Year of Release: 1991 Developer: Sensible Software Publisher: Image Works/Ubisoft/Virgin Interactive As with Powermonger, I remember reading about Mega Lo Mania in a Mega Drive/Genesis guide collection long before I had a chance to play it. It feels similar – a colourful strategy game with a vaguely […]

894th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: Neo Geo Pocket Color Year of Release: 1999 Developer: SNK Publisher: SNK Although Pokemon: The Trading Card Game dates back a good two decades by now, it feels like the genre hasn’t taken off until the release of Hearthstone about six years ago, with plenty of other games […]

877th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: Playstation 1 Year of Release: 1999 Developer: Square Product Development Division 6 Publisher: Square I’ve been looking forward to playing Front Mission 3 – at its core a tactics game like Final Fantasy Tactics, but with mechs and all that. It also seems appropriately story dense and in […]

872nd played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: PC Year of Release: 1997 Developer: Cavedog Entertainment Publisher: GT Interactive Software I vaguely remember playing Total Annihilation with friends, in an era where Warcraft dominated the RTS conversation at school. Aside from the futuristic setting – Command & Conquer had that – there was something about the […]

857th played so far Genre: Strategy/Role-Playing Platform: PC Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Relic Entertainment Publisher: THQ The first Dawn of War game hit a strategy spot, focusing on smaller squads that are easier to follow and keep track of. The world was as engaging as I’d expect and while base building was a thing, […]

847th played so far Genre: Strategy/Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Various Year of Release: 1993 Developer: David Braben Publisher: Gametek For what it’s worth, Elite‘s promise and capabilities were somewhat diminished by its age and the lack of accessibility for a very complex game. You can’t blame it for being difficult to get into, but it’s […]

846th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: Game Boy Advance Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Codo Technologies Publisher: Namco It seems like Rebelstar: Tactical Command is a clear example of a sequel in name only. While both the original Rebelstar and this game are tactical games, there isn’t a clear link in storyline or special […]
