    I almost wrote in chess once myself, but it sounded terribly snotty to my own ears.

    I concur. Grand-strategy indeed.

    My favorite strategy games:

    Dark Reign: The Future of War
    Heroes of Might & Magic III (& expansions)
    Age of Empires 2: The Age of Kings
    Battle for Middle-Earth (1 & 2)
    Rome: Total War
    Medieval 2: Total War


    Dark Reign and HoMM3 in particular get extra points for being awesome even now, so many years after their release. HOMM3 will never show its age.

    And here is a bonus: A link to my old Battle for Middle-Earth 2: Rise of the Witch-King modification. Really good stuff, if you ever played that game.

    Love that one dearly; I fondly wish for an updated one. If I was a genius indie game developer, the first thing I'd do is get together a couple friends and build a game that was basically a modern version of Master of Magic. But I'm not.

    Also, I like Galactic Civilizations 2 and the Total War games. Big fan of the combat system for Total War, especially.

    Gotta say Wesnoth is the gem I keep going back to for pure strategy. StarCraft etc. are all fabulous, but wesnoth has the deeper meta imo.

    I also echo the sentiments for DotA, but that's mostly twitchy. Although there's HoN and LoL in that genre as well. They're all great fun.
