I would make an awesome Global Shogun. An awesome Supreme Global Ayatollah. An Awesome Global Dictator. An awesome Global Imperial Pontus.
With me in charge it would be a Libertarian Socialist Utopia. Kinda like the end of Toy Story 3 after they got rid of Lotso.

Since I havent gotten around to achieving world domination in reality yet I enjoy world domination type games.

The game Risk is my favourite board game. I have it on my laptop too. I like the Total War series. Age of Empires are ok but they are kinda like a babies game compared to Total War. The battles in Total War make it the best series ever.

As for managing a country I like Tropico. I am a fantastic el-Presidente and my bannana republics rule.
The game also has alot of political humour. Juanito on TNT Radio is hilarious.

Anyway,are there any other aspiring world rulers out there sharpening diplomacy skills and developing their Generalship on Total War. Developing your style on the battlefield your military strategies?


Tropica is good fun trying to manage everything. Sometimes when I feel like an 'evil genius' I play Evil Genius. Its a world domination game of sorts. Pretty funny. I would make an awesome evil genius (if only I was a genius).
Any evil genius' out there?

And am I missing out on anything as good as Risk,TotalWar and Tropico for my fantasies of world domination?

# This thread maybe should be in Video Games but Risk is a Board Game so

Hearts of Iron II is good politically and if you like depth and micromanagement.
Europa Universalis III if you like medieval/enlightment age stuff and is made by the same people

The Total War series of course. Medieval 2:Total War is my personal favourite.

Civilization games although personally I'm not a huge fan.

Also Rise of Nations has turn-based, world domination aspects with a hell of a lot of factions and variety. The actual gameplay is realtime though.

EDIT: Props for mentioning Tropico, OP. Badass game.

Hey thanks. I actually missed that game. I was hoping someone would mention some older games. I remember Syndicate was one of the first strategy games I got into.

And yeah,you can really bounce those guys around with the traps in Evil Genius. Funny Game.

Nice, I didn't even know it was a video game.

Dune was directed by David Lynch right?

Awesome, I am going to download this game for some serious kicks.

Me too. There is no honour in gunpowder
Arrows and crossbows are bad enough.

Thanks hey. I do like the micro managment stuff. Like when you are deep into Total War and it can take over an hour for one turn.

Age of empire 3, it was HUGE when it was first released. The first of its type with bad ass graphics. My favorite tactic was to build up a army of cannons and blast the # out of the enemy.

Or the king of ALL domination games. Supperpower 2, it was under estimated. It did not get to popular because it requires you to have some smarts. It is kind of a propaganda piece but its still fun.

I must admit Age of Empires are cool games.

Ahh Risk, the weekends spent strategising and plotting against fellow flat mates whilst only pausing to roll, take food deliveries and fridge/toilet runs. Those were the days


Did not know it was on PC - must get it so I can continue taking over the world as a married man with no more student friends


Only have Civilisation and the new one is taking some getting used too. Thanks for the others, will look them up.

I also really like Imperial Glory - very addictive and some great naval battles.

If you love Total War series and have never played Lords of the Realm 2, you really should.
Turn based economy, but with real time battles.
Mercenaries, castle building, farming, diplomacy, it's great. It really got me addicted to turn based strategies.

I played lots of Age of Empires and AOE2, but they seemed to end up being a click fest that led into mild carpal tunnel syndrome. The fights are too fast and I hate juggling economics and warfare.

Rome: Total War was awesome..

Now I'm playing Empire: Total War. Revolutionary War era; canons, muskets, grenadiers. Completely different feel.
It's amazing, if your rig can handle it..

Hey thanks. Havent played Lords of the Realm. And yeah,I loved Rome Total War. I bought Empires but I havent had time to play it yet. I am interested in how different it will be because I always hated using muskets and stuff in late stages Shogun and Medievil. They had no range and were difficult to use. And easy to attack.
Thanks again hey.

If you want to dominate worlds try Galactic Civilizations 2 or if you want to keep it to one planet play Civilizations 4.

There is a civ 5 but I haven't played much of it it yet.

In Empire it's all about cannons, and positioning of units. Cavalry doesn't annihilate infantry nearly as bad as other Total War games.
Flanking is the only way to use cavalry, or they will get mowed down by canister shot from cannons (think 12gauge on crack)
Most infantry have bayonets and box formations that you can research, and dispatch groups of even heavy cavalry quite easily.
Cavalry does have it's advantages though for picking off routers.
The overall feel of the game is much more refined than Rome, and you get to use gentlemen to research at schools. So there are tech-trees for military/enlightenment/industrial.

....And did I mention the sea battles?
Almost too much fun.
Only downside of the game is it can glitch and crash. I'm around 60 turns into Sweden campaign and have only had 1 crash I can think of, and I have a somewhat newer gaming rig.
If you play it, save often.

I modded Rome heavily to get it to feel realistic. Empire has it's "wtf?" moments but the battles are very fun and it's sweet to watch battles play out.

Thanks for the tips. And yeah,I was really looking forward to the sea battles.

Look into the Game Master series of board games (some also have a pc version) they are really amazing.
1. Conquest of the Empire
2. Axis and Allies.
3. Shogun
There was also a pirate ship game with Broadsides in the title and a future war themed game but I forget the title.
