1. Myth
2. Civ
3. X-Com

In that order. If you consider Myth and X-Com "tactical" games rather
than "strategic", then:

1. Civ
2. MOO
3. Master of Magic

So I'm old school, sue me. :^)

(1) Dominions 2: the Ascension Wars
absolutely and far into the number one slot

(2) Space Empires IV
a 4x space game but only high rated with the player mods

(3) Hmmm not sure after that.
Master of Magic? Stars? Celtic Kings?

Civ
GalCiv
MOO and MoM
(Imperialism)

I really think you need to separate RTS from TBS, because I can't even
compare Starcraft to Civ.

Maybe we need to have a blogsite that has these surveys on it, and then
we can take a pole of which survey question we like best.

Celtic Kings? Are you serious? It seemed "okay" sort of but certainly not
in the top 3 contenders.

Yep. It was garbage. I believe there were two additional games
made in the same one. They're all available at TotalGaming.net
and trygames.com

Garbage that Strategy First published.

I said it was "okay". It certainly wasn't garbage. I remember having
several hours of fun with it. Certainly not Top 3 Strategy Games Evar
material but not a waste of money either, esp. at bargain prices you can
find it now. I liked the way the tutorial sort of walked you through a
story and taught you about the game at the same time. Not as polished as
Starcraft's learning-levels but still pretty cool.

Its on my machine in the "quick game without TOO much thought" category.
Along with things like "Missile Command" and "Breakout". Its what I fall
back to when Im too tired or too pissed at something to play #1 or #2.

You are all correct. I should not have listed it as number 3.

1. MOM
2. MOO 2
3. Civ 2

Yeah, that's about it. Good strategy games are hard to come by, especially
the massive and really strategic ones.

LOL, hey, you don't have to justify your Top 3, if that's what you like, so
be it. ;)

I've found that my Top 3 will vary depending on what day you ask me. ;p
