Gaming 101:
Strategy Games
 

In this series, we are learning how different aspects of video games work by playing games that offer an easy introduction to this one concept. This is designed for people new to gaming and aims to identify games with the least barriers. In this entry, we are looking at Strategy games.

Strategy games may include other aspects but the main focus is on collecting materials and making careful decisions about how you use to generate and deploy resources. Build armies before heading in for an offensive, plant a farm to generate the best crops, plan a network of roads or lay out an amusement park.

Strategy games have in common the focus on making premeditated decisions to gain the outcome you need. These games are further divided between those that are turn-based and allow the player as much time as they need to make decisions, or in real-time where you have to make decisions with limited delay.
 
This list includes 31 games from the last 14 years, with 418 likes. They come from a range of different genres and play-styles and are all good games if you want to play your first strategy game.
