Parable: Five TBS Titles You Can’t Live Without

Turn based Strategy games have been with us since the dawn of the videogame age, with the first of the genre being published in 1978 for the Commodore PET under the rather long winded and unimaginative title “Tanktics: Computer Game of Armored Combat on the Eastern Front”. Since it’s invention nearly 30 years ago the genre has undergone any number of transformations and has since split out into a magnitude of sub-genres such as turn based tactics (TBT) and 4X strategy. Despite the constant tweaks and alterations to the formula, the genre is still as popular today as it ever has been with titles such as Sid Meier’s Civilisation and Shogun often domineering in terms of sales. With all the ups and downs the genre has experienced and through all the alterations and phases it’s passed through, it’s often hard to discover those timeless classics that made the genre great and as such, this is a list highlighting the top five of the genre that I personally think any TBS fan can’t live without. (Culture, Sid Meier's Civ World)
