Strategy games, wie is er niet groot mee geworden. Of je nu begonnen bent met Civilization of Total Annihilation, strategy games zijn van alle tijden en voor alle gamers. GameSpy bekijkt de geschiedenis van dit populaire genre en laat spellen als Civilization, WarCraft, Dune 2 en nog meer golden oldies de revue passeren.Perhaps the first widely distributed real-time strategy game was Command HQ. Released in 1990 to critical acclaim and solid sales, this Dani Bunten (M.U.L.E., Heart of Africa) designed game was a real-time contest centered on global conquest. Gamers controlled division-like formations of armor, infantry, and naval task forces as they attempted to smash their opponent and control the globe. The game was lite on the resource management -- you needed to only control enough oil to power your armies -- but an absorbing strategy game nonetheless. Sales were strong enough to warrant a sequel. Je kan morgen het volgende deel in de geschiedenis van de strategy games verwachten. Je zou alleen uit nostalgische overwegingen de screenshots van het artikel moeten bekijken.
