Strategy

Description

In its broad sense, the strategy genre encompasses games that emphasize problem-solving. Thinking and planning are necessary components of strategy; they can be used for such diverse purposes as preparing and positioning troops to gain advantage in a war, or figure out the principle of a puzzle. While adventure games may include puzzles, they focus on following a linear story while occasionally dealing with obstacles rather than being entirely dedicated to problem-solving. Puzzle, chess, and card games fall under the strategy category.

In a more specific (and more common) sense, strategy games refer to a genre that puts the player in command of an armed force (sometimes an entire nation), trying to gain the upper hand in a conflict either through diplomatic means or warfare. Strategy games can be either turn-based or real-time.

Managerial simulations that involve competition with the computer AI are classified as both simulation and strategy games. Strategy war games may also include role-playing elements.
