List of turn-based tactics video games

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Turn-based tactics is a video game genre. Chris Crawford,[1] Julian Gollop, Strategic Simulations, and Blue Byte developed early turn-based tactical games,[2] which were often inspired by traditional tactical wargames played on tabletops.[3] Because of their low system requirements, turn-based tactical games were popular on early personal computers. This peaked with the released of X-COM: UFO Defense in 1994.[2] When X-COM's sequels failed to make the same impression, publishers grew cautious of funding similar games on personal computers.[4]

As the 1990s continued, 3D graphics grew popular, and gamers increasingly turned to real time strategy games. Though new tactics games continued to be released on personal computers, tactical combat became more of a component in tactical role-playing games,[2] and tactical games grew more popular on handheld consoles. These complex but accessible games widened the appeal of turn-based tactics.[1] The 2012 release of XCOM: Enemy Unknown, a remake of the 1994 video game, reinvigorated the genre on personal computers and led to many new games using streamlined, modern rules.[2][4]
