Abandonware Strategy games
With an emphasis on strategic and tactical challenges, strategy games are especially suited for those who enjoy employing skilful planning in order to achieve victory. Rooted in tabletop board games, strategy games origins can be found in games such as Chess and Risk.
Earlier games tended to be turn-based remakes of classic board games before the genre expanded to include real time strategy and tactical games. In some cases they may share characteristics with simulation games and employ logistical and resource management elements along with the tactical and strategic ones.
Battle Chess represents an early example of a tabletop remake, while games like Dune II and the Warcraft and Command & Conquer franchises marked the transition to real time. Alongside them turn-based empire building games still remain popular due to the success of the Civilization series.
