The Strategy tag refers to a genre of games that emphasize strategic thinking, planning, and decision-making. Strategy games typically involve players taking control of an entire faction, army, empire, or civilization and guiding them to victory through various means.

In strategy games, players are often presented with complex gameplay mechanics that require careful analysis and strategic planning. These mechanics can include resource management, tactical combat, diplomacy, research and development, city or base building, and much more.

Strategy games can be further categorized into different subgenres:

  • Turn-based Strategy These games allow players to take turns making decisions while the game world remains static. Examples in this subgenre include the renowned Civilization series by Sid Meier or the classic fantasy strategy game Heroes of Might & Magic III.
  • Real-time Strategy (RTS) In RTS games such as StarCraft II or the Total War series, gameplay unfolds in real-time with continuous action. Players must manage resources on-the-fly and react quickly to changing situations.
  • Tactical Strategy Games like the popular XCOM franchise focus on smaller-scale battles with heightened tactical depth. Players control individual units in combat scenarios against enemies using turn-based tactics.

Apart from these subgenres within strategy gaming lies an incredible variety of themes ranging from historical wars and civilizations to futuristic sci-fi settings or even fantasy realms where magic reigns supreme. Some other notable examples of strategy games include:

  • Sid Meier's Civilization VI One of the most celebrated turn-based strategy franchises where players guide a civilization from its early beginnings to becoming a global power.
  • Crusader Kings III In this grand strategy game, players navigate the intricate web of medieval politics, alliances, and wars to build and expand their dynasty.
  • Company of Heroes 2 This real-time strategy game places players in command of their troops during World War II, utilizing tactical maneuvers and careful unit placement for success on the battlefield.

In summary, strategy games provide an immersive experience that challenges players' intellect and strategic prowess. Whether it's building an empire, leading armies into battle or managing resources, these games offer a fulfilling sense of accomplishment through shrewd decision-making.
