This was a strong year for strategy games with all the heavy hitters coming out. Xcom, Total War, Civilization, Roller Coaster Tycoon, and some new comers. All of them were fantastic and delivered fantastic gameplay, but only one could come out on top.
Total War: Warhammer
Warhammer not only gave us the best Total War game, but let us fight our favorite factions together and brought together the most detailed Warhammer game to date. We get the strategy of the Dawn of War series and the up close bloodshed of games elsewhere in the series. With amazing visuals and sound design there is tons of hours of fun here. I can’t remember the last year we had so many great strategy games since the early 2000’s.
