Where others rise and fall, strategy remains: powerful, ever-present, adored. We takes a look at the evolution of the genre that pre-dates all of gaming
It’s the oldest genre in the world, predating videogames, computer games, any form of organised game. It forms a base element of near enough all thought processes. Nations have risen – and fallen – because of good and bad use of it. Without strategy, there would be nothing – never mind Civilization, we wouldn’t have a civilisation as we know it. Strategy is, in short, quite an interesting genre.
