Group Description

God Games are a type of games in which the player literally takes on the role of a god. Often an important aspect in these kinds of games are the moral choices the player has to make. While most commonly such games are tactical simulation games, this group lists all types of games in which the player takes on the role of a god.

Excluded from the group are other divine entities such as avatars/aspects of a deity or angelic beings.
