A strategy game is a genre of video game that challenges players to use critical thinking, planning, and decision-making skills to achieve specific objectives within the game's rules and constraints. These games emphasize strategic, tactical, and often long-term planning over reflexes and physical dexterity. Strategy games come in various forms, including turn-based and real-time gameplay, and they often involve resource management, building, combat, and diplomacy. Subgenres of strategy games include real-time strategy (RTS), turn-based strategy (TBS), 4X (explore, expand, exploit, exterminate), grand strategy, and tower defense, among others. Popular strategy game franchises include "Civilization," "StarCraft," "Total War," and "Age of Empires." Strategy games cater to players who enjoy planning, decision-making, and the challenge of outsmarting opponents through careful analysis and execution of their strategies. They often offer deep and rewarding gameplay experiences that can be both intellectually stimulating and highly immersive.
