942nd played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: Mega Drive Year of Release: 1989 Developer: Technosoft Publisher: Technosoft/Sega Strategy games that predate Dune II and others that created the RTS genre are always odd. When you get something turn based you can easily go back to the likes of Archon, while something like Power Monger has […]

940th played so far Genre: Role-Playing/Strategy Platform: DS Year of Release: 2007 Developer: Square Enix Publisher: Square Enix It’s time to start mopping up some franchises that had several entries still left – and with the immense series that’s Final Fantasy I need to tackle entry eleven out of twelve (and yes, I’m leaving a […]

929th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: Wii Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Ronimo Games Publisher: Ronimo Games Did you know that the only physical release of Swords & Soldiers seems to have been the German version? It’s the only one I could find, at least, which worried me a bit at first. It was […]

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.

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 […]
