List Rules Video games where you play god. Not all strategy games apply.

These are the best God games of all time for any console or system, including cover art pictures when available. What exactly is a God game? Well it's a genre where you're essentially playing God, controlling the lives of one or more people and choosing how they will live (and die). Don't confuse god games with city-building games or RTS games, as they are not quite one and the same. These highly rated God games are ordered by popularity, so only the greatest god games are at the top of the list. What types of God Games are there?

Spanning the entire history of the genre, these God games are considered the best in the genre. The Black & White series is the go to for many players, but games like Spore and Populous are must plays as well. This list includes all challenging God games that have ever hit the shelves, so it doesn't necessarily have all the more obscure or new God games.

Everything from The Sims to Spore is included on this list. This list answers the questions, "What are the best God games?" and "What is the greatest God game game of all time?"
