Where is the Command&Conquer saga,? As good as Civ 5 is... still StarCraft2 should be ranked no. 1, its the game which is played by most ppl thru all years, from 1998 to 2010 it was StarCraft1, from 2010 on its StarCraft2.

I guess nobody actually understands just how god-like Broodwar is. I don't say it lightly that Broodwar is BY FAR the best game ever made.
Dzintars Klavins (1 month ago)

So... Starcraft 2 was in 2 places. The 22th for the latest expansion and the 4th for the first version (that it's less likely that everyone it's playing it).

Catch (7 months ago)
Yo, What about battle for middlearth ??!?!? It beats Every game on this list in my opinion . And you guys Didnt even include 1 of the games ?!!?
Proctolul (7 months ago)
That's a nice list but a bit too broad imo. Yes they're all "strategy" games, but among the list there's RTS, tower defense, RPG, turn-based, stealth, puzzle, moba, rogue-like and action games, which are quite different from each other. I think a list where Transistor, SC2, Mini Metro and Dota 2 are considered the same kind of games doesn't make much sense. Just my 2 cents.
Skel Neldory (2 months ago)
Proctolul Plants Vs. Zombies is obviously the pinnacle of strategy games.
Proctolul (7 months ago)
Yes exactly, PC has plenty of RTS to dedicate a list to the genre alone. If any game where you need to think is considered a strategy game, then there should be plenty of others genres included; card games, sim-like games, simulation games, 4X, even survival games. How can FTL (a roguelike), Orcs must die (a tower defense) and warcraft 3 (an RTS) end up on the same list? Wouldn't Valkyria chronicles make more sense in a top 25 RPG list? Did you guys even play half of these games or did you just filter "strategy" on metacritic and picked the first 25 entries you found? And where the hell is Age of Empires?
Zoutje (7 months ago)
I agree. Should compare RTS for example, and not so many games with different genres (where strategy isn't always the main category imo).
Rick (7 months ago)
The playscore for dota isnt really fair. People giving negative reviews at dota because of 'no half life 3' Wth?
Vincent Pakson (7 months ago)
Great List! again!
Jonadab Condeno (7 months ago)
Totally agree with the list! CIV 6 sure is classic strategy game.
