The Thinking Mans Strategy List

GOGmix by jamotide's avatarjamotide 10votes

Imperialism

jamotide's rating:
250

jamotide says: It has been called The Thinking Mans Civilization and it does not disappoint. The economic system is addictive and unique. The replay value is incredible, the fun comes from perfecting your strategy until you master "Nigh-on Impossible".

Eador: Genesis

jamotide's rating:
250

jamotide says: This game completely blew me away when it was released. For half a year I could not do anything else but play this game. If you ever wanted a worthy successor to the likes of Heroes 3, Age of Wonders or Master of Magic, the time has come!

FTL: Advanced Edition

jamotide's rating:
250

jamotide says: Ok so this does not have the large scale of the previous two games, but the unique blend of strategy,RPG and realtime fights make this game worthy of this list. While the game seems difficult in the beginning, lots of fun can be had mastering it.

Patrician 3

jamotide's rating:
250

jamotide says: It starts out as a simple trading game, but develops into a complex resource management and planning exercise. You will have to think alot about how to supply the cities with the goods they demand. A business sim fan's dream.

Imperialism 2: The Age of Exploration

jamotide's rating:
250

jamotide says: Just as good as the original, but slightly different. The economic model is a bit adjusted to make food supply more important. The combat system is much improved and diplomacy less useful. Worth playing for variety during breaks from Imperialism 1.

Capitalism Plus

jamotide's rating:
250

jamotide says: This business sim was used at Stanford and Harvard as a "world-class, hands-on learning experience". It simulates the production and sale of common household products. Retail prices are made up of brand,cost and quality, all under your control.

Capitalism 2

jamotide's rating:
250

jamotide says: It is basically the same as Capitalism Plus, with minor differences and prettier graphics. A standalone sequel with big improvements called Capitalism Lab was just released, but it is not on gog (yet?).

Treat your GOGmix as your child - name it! ;)

Coming up with a cool and descriptive title should be your first priority. Being original is in your best interest - bet you wanna get lots of nice votes, right? Go all crazy if you want, but be sure to keep it civil!

So, what are the ingredients?

Pick a game that belongs in your GOGmix from the list, or find it by typing something in the text field. Relevance is key here - Earthworm Jim doesn't quite fit the "Sexiest heroines of all time" bill now, does it?

Justify your choice... Or not!

OK, so it's not required, but now that you went through the trouble of adding a game, telling everyone why you did it would be a nice finishing touch. After you're done here, add another game, rinse, repeat.
