#8. Prison Architect
Build and manage a Maximum Security Prison.
As the sun casts its early morning rays on a beautiful patch of countryside the clock starts ticking.
You’ve got to crack on and build a holding cell to detain the job lot of maximum security prisoners that are trundling to your future prison on their yellow bus.
As your workmen lay the last brick you don’t have a moment to let them rest as they need to get started on the first proper cell block so you can make room for the next prisoner intake.
Once they’ve all got a place to lay their weary heads the fun can really start.
You’ll need a canteen, infirmary and a guard room, oh, and don’t forget to plumb in a toilet, or things will get messy, but what about a workout area?
Or solitary confinement cells? Or an execution chamber?
Inspired by Dungeon Keeper, Dwarf Fortress and Theme Hospital and with over 1 million players having spent time inside, Prison Architect is the worlds best lock-em-up.
#7. Worms W.M.D

Work your way through 30 campaign levels of increasing difficulty using the huge arsenal of new and classic weapons at your disposal.
Use new vehicles to cause chaos amongst the enemy ranks and use buildings to gain the tactical advantage as you try to dominate the battlefield!
Take on up to five opponents in hilarious all-out tactical worm warfare with up to eight worms each, either in local or online multiplayer, including ranked play.
Flatten your opponents with the Concrete Donkey.
Turn them into chunks of worm meat with the Holy Hand Grenade.
Rain down hell from above in helicopters or pound them into oblivion with the tank.
With 80 weapons and utilities at your fingertips, this is Worms at its chaotic best!
#6. The Banner Saga
The Banner Saga is an epic role-playing game inspired by Viking legend.
Hand-painted landscapes portray a world eerily suspended in perpetual twilight.
Cities and towns begin to crumble into chaos.
Heroes abandon their hearths and homes to traverse the snowy countryside, gaining allies along the way to help battle a strange, new threat.
Decisions have consequences; wise choices must be made when conversing with possible allies during intricately crafted dialogues.
Turn-based strategy brings tactical challenge in hand-animated battle sequences.
With visuals evocative of the golden age of animation, The Banner Saga brings skillfully crafted art, story and strategy to gamers waiting to re-experience classic adventures and tactics.
SMITE is the online battleground of the gods.
Players choose from a diverse cast of deities and use their unique powers to triumph over the opposition in 5v5 team matches.
SMITE is a new take on the MOBA genre; rather than observing from above the action, the game’s third person perspective puts players into the thick of combat.
#4. This War of Mine: The Little Ones
This War Of Mine provides an experience of war seen from an entirely new angle.
For the very first time you do not play as an elite soldier, rather a group of civilians trying to survive in a besieged city.
During the day snipers outside stop you from leaving your refuge, so you need to focus on maintaining your hideout.
At night you get a chance to scavenge nearby locations for items that will help you stay alive.
Make life-and-death decisions driven by your conscience.
Try to protect everybody from your shelter or sacrifice some of them to endure the hardships.
During war, there are no good or bad decisions; there is only survival.
The sooner you realize that, the better.

Key to progression is the ability to influence your city’s policy by incorporating taxation into districts.
All this including the ability to mod the game to suit your play style makes this the definitive city building simulation.
#1. XCOM 2
Earth has changed.
Twenty years have passed since world leaders offered an unconditional surrender to alien forces.
XCOM, the planets last line of defense, was left decimated and scattered.
Now, in XCOM 2, the aliens rule Earth, building shining cities that promise a brilliant future for humanity on the surface, while concealing a sinister agenda and eliminating all who dissent from their new order.
Only those who live at the edges of the world have a margin of freedom.
Here, a force gathers once again to stand up for humanity.
Always on the run, and facing impossible odds, the remnant XCOM forces must find a way to ignite a global resistance, and eliminate the alien threat once and for all.
