List Rules Games don't have to be console exclusive, as long as they were released for Xbox at some point.

If you owned a Xbox at any time during your life, then it's safe to say there were probably a few strategy games in your collection. Using your brain to solve puzzles and battle opponents is a ton of fun, and with turn-based games, puzzles, tower defense games and more, there are unlimited options to explore. With so many choices to pick from, there was never a shortage of games to play for fans of the genre. Since some games were much better than others, we've decided to rank the best Xbox strategy games of all time. Many different genres were taken to new heights by the then powerful Xbox when it came out, and many great franchises got their start on the system.

This list will feature the most popular and best selling strategy games that were released for Xbox. While many of these games were console exclusive, we're allowing non-exclusives to be a part of the list as well. Games featured on this list include everything from The Sims to Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon. Vote for your favorite video games below, and feel free to add any that you think deserve to be on the list.
