During this period, there was no direct military confrontation between the two superpowers; however, there were intense political, economic, and ideological tensions. The Cold War tag encompasses games that explore themes related to this era and often include elements such as espionage, political intrigue, proxy wars, technological advancements, and nuclear threats.

Games with the Cold War tag can be found in various genres ranging from strategy games, first-person shooters, simulation games or even narrative-driven adventures. These games offer players an opportunity to experience key events or reimagined scenarios of this historical epoch through gameplay mechanics and immersive storytelling.

Examples of popular video games featuring the Cold War setting:

  • XCOM 2 A turn-based strategy game where players command a global resistance force against an alien occupation in a post-apocalyptic setting heavily influenced by a future version of Earth's history shaped by continued tension between world powers during the Cold War.
  • Deus Ex: Human Revolution Although set in a dystopian future, this RPG incorporates strong cyberpunk themes influenced by elements of espionage and conspiracy prevalent during the time when governments were engaged in clandestine activities.
