Like with management games, economy games require research, diplomacy, and vision. In Sid Meier's Civilization V, the player takes a civilization 1,000 years into the future. To succeed, players must address all aspects of leading a nation, from economic development to military defense. In the economy game Game Dev Tycoon, players deal with all the business decisions that come with being the leader of a game development company in the 1980s, back when the gaming industry was in its infancy.
