Strategy games are games that make you think. They make you use your brain thing and it hurts. There are various types of strategy games, sub-genres, such as real-time strategy and turn-based strategy. Strategy is an element that can be found in many non-strategy games, referring to any time where it requires you to think about a tactic. For example, an action game can have a specific strategy that makes attacking more efficient. Strategy video games have their roots in strategy board games, including chess, go, draughts, and wargaming, which also inspired role-playing games.
