Turn Based Strategy Games
From seminal franchises such as Fire Emblem and Final Fantasy Tactics, to modern classics such as The Banner Saga and the Valkyria Chronicles series, turn based strategy games are known for a more slow and methodical pace compared to their real time counterparts such as Warcraft and Starcraft.
