Who doesn’t know what a PC is? Personal Computers are one of the most defining features of our time. Machines that are great for work, for fun and for studying. But what PC really is? The Wiki says it’s a “multi-purpose electronic computer whose size, capabilities and price make it feasible for individual use”. But it gets better: “Personal Computers are intended to be operated directly by an end-user, rather than by a computer expert or technician”. Computers were originally invented to “compute” and solve complex mathematical problems. Today, everything is different and their original purpose is actually the least important one. Instead, they are used for gathering data (internet), entertainment (video games, movies, music, etc) and work.
Since the early 1990s, Microsoft operating systems and Intel hardware have dominated the PC market. There are alternatives to Microsoft Windows operating system but they still occupy a minority share of the industry. These include Apple's iOS and free open-source operating systems (e.g. Linux and Chrome OS).Strategy video games are focused mainly around thinking and careful planning in order to achieve victory. The action itself can scale from squad-based tactics to world domination. In most strategy video games, the players are given a godlike view of the game world and a direct control over their units. Just like role-playing games, strategy games have developed from traditional board games.
Strategy video games can be divided into four general archetypes: real-time, turn-based, focused on strategy or focused on tactics. The best strategy games of all time are: Civilization, Heroes of Might and Magic, Age of Empires, Command and Conquer, and Warcraft. They’re designed for gamers who want to control every aspect of the game.
