The Results Are In: Here Are Your Picks For Your Favorite Strategy Settings.

This week’s poll was a pretty tight race, and I’m not too surprised by that.  There are many different settings for strategy games, and the vast majority of them work pretty well.  Because of that you end up with lots of different types of strategy fans.  In first place was the future setting.  I would include games like Starcraft, Warhammer 40k: Dawn of War, Total Annihilation, etc… in there.  Before you get all up in arms about the first two games mentioned there, keep in mind that all of the fighting in those games happens on planets.  You have aerial units, but there are no “space battles” like there is in a game like Sins of a Solar Empire.  Historical military (like the Total War series) tied for second with history/diplomacy (which I’d categorize as the Civilization style game).  In 3rd place there was a tie between fantasy and space, both of which are near and dear to my heart.  Behind them were modern military and sports, not surprisingly.  Not that sports strategy games are bad, but I think it takes a special kind of fan to get wrapped up in the management of a sport without being able to play it.
