    For me personally, best strategy game is ( It's unique in compare to other similar games, developes strong top management skills.

    Brood War should totally be on there instead of SC2. And probably be number one just based off of the entire scene it created and the length at which it was played for.

    CIv V is great but Age Of Mythology should be the first one on every list that involve best strategy games .
  • Galaxy010 - May 8, 2014 8:55 a.m.

    This article needs more Age of Mythology. Easily my favorite strategy game of all time.

    Screw this shit. so much strategy games i don't even are up to, i could enjoy company of heroes and command & conquer. but i found other's fitting me more like Stronghold series and Wargame Series, an really? supreme commander is one of the nominated? that was a game that made me turn around in my last life grave.
  • RSQViper - May 8, 2014 7:40 a.m.

    Agreed that XCOM would be a nice addition to the list, btu it's also hard to take any off. Civ V. Yes... so much yes. If anyone here is a strat fan, you NEED this game!

    I would have put Shogun in instead of Rome, also the original Xcom.
  • james3248 - May 8, 2014 1:15 a.m.

    What about Total Annihilation :o
  • CurryIsGood - May 8, 2014 midnight

    Civ and Red Alert made it, I'm happy. Although I kind of wanted to see some Advance Wars or Xcom too.
  • MeanwhileGuy - May 7, 2014 11:47 p.m.

    While I love seeing my favourite strategy series of all time, Total War, so high up, I'd argue Medieval 2 is a better game than Rome. In fact, I'm still playing it now (and logged over 500 hours on The Third Age LOTR mod alone). Also, how about FTL or XCOM? Pretty sure they're considered to be genre pinnacles, especially XCOM.
  • winner2 - May 7, 2014 7:30 p.m.

    Sorry but I just realized the latest XCOM isn't on here, I'm curious as to how it didn't make the list.
  • MARl0 - May 7, 2014 4:21 p.m.

    Disappointed to not see Advance Wars or Valkyria Chronicles here.
  • LordZarlon - May 7, 2014 2:55 p.m.

    Great list. My order might have been different but you hit most of the high marks. Honestly, though, I still feel Age of Mythology is the best Age game. I know everybody jizzes over Age 2 but I still feel Mythology is the best of the series. I also think Command and Conquer 3 belongs on this list.
  • Kijib - May 7, 2014 1:55 p.m.

    WTF where is Call of Duty?
  • melekeddine - May 7, 2014 3:20 p.m.

    Lol nice one!!
  • BladedFalcon - May 7, 2014 1:50 p.m.

    ...No TBS games? meh.
  • Kijib - May 7, 2014 1:57 p.m.

    thats what Civ is ya dingus
  • BladedFalcon - May 7, 2014 2:06 p.m.

    ...Damn, you're completely right, had forgotten about that. In that case, no Advance Wars? (And don't give me that bullshit that it's an "RPG" because it isn't, you might be able to pull that shit with Fire Emblem, but not with the AW series.)
  • StrayGator - May 7, 2014 1:33 p.m.

    Any mention of HoM&M (prob. 3) would've been nice.
  • bobob101 - May 7, 2014 1:20 p.m.

    If you are going to go with a Total War game, my vote goes to Shogun 2. I have played rounds of that game that took me over a week to complete, and every second is one I enjoy. But I am just glad that two of my favorite franchises, Supreme Commander and Age of Empires got a mention. Supreme Commander for its stupidly wonderful tech like robot tyrannosauruses, and Age of Empires for being my first experience in the strategy genre
