Either rome total war or populous, although that's not exactly a strategy game.

Men of War -its all realistic,moddels,timeline,real penetration system(can be hit in left,right track,engine etc...) Real armor value.Great graphic (best of strategy games.) very entartaining. Only real disadvantage is that u need original game to play multiplayer (because 1 cd-key is only to 1 account) Much mods and patches so its always more updated to real gameplay and WW2 feel like.

1. Most are old 2000's games.
2. We talk about best games or best graphics?

Hm... I enjoyed MTW 2 and RTW since I could beat the AI in tactical battles with almost anything, against almost anything. Then I realized I'm no new Hannibal but the AI sucks. Seriously, charging infantry against a line of men twice as wide? Leaving your chief/King exposed? Attacking with 70 men against 500? Come on, seriously. I'd nominate Shogun for most catchy advisor sound (Noble Lord, excellent news. You have a son!)

I still enjoy Galactic Civilizations 2 (be it Dread Lords or one of the expansions), it has a giant tech tree (unique one for each race in the newest expansion), map sizes from a couple of solar systems to half of the galaxy, incredible AI (which, sadly, mistakes my lack of ships for combat for stupidity and forgets that it is *I*, not them who has the top economy) and so on.

Europa Universalis 3, Hearts of Iron 2 and 3 (more 2 then 3), Crusader Kings are all a hill of awesome for me too (1066-1968! w00t!)
Company of Heroes is top of the line when it comes to WW2 RTS games as far as I'm concerned, although the game still has some.. issues..

No best strategy for me, just equals among equals 8O

Best game ever? I think it would either be Dune 2, Total Annihilation, Conquest of the New World or Colonization for me. Best game in this millenia? That would have to be Hearts of Iron 2, Supreme Commander or C&C Generals. EDIT: Oh or Medieval Total War.

I cannot choose a best game ever. But I know there is a special place in my games library for;

Pacific War (I still play this today)

Age of Empires

F-19 Stealth Fighter

Harpoon series

I do not really care about graphics. I started on text based games and care more for gameplay than flashy pixels.

XCOM series, without argument.

Extremely old, but extremely well-made and difficult. Example, first one is made in 1993, isometric and with 100% destructible terrain during combat. I mean it. Every cubic meter. Every soldier comes with more than 10 stats which interact with each other , the entire world's countries fund your efforts based on how much you made, some countries may fall to alien conspiracy, and hinder your effort.

Every soldier comes with more than 10 stats which interact with each other , and are dependent on morale and psychic abilities which will decide their performance.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xcom

The third game of the series was vastly improved and added a lot of Cyberpunk and Retrofuturism, I wrote most of the wikipage:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X-COM:_Apocalypse




tl;dr, you fight an Alien invasion with a secretive, UN funded specialist army in a VERY losing battle, just gaining enough time to find out what can hurt them most.

I cant play SR2020 well but I still love 2010. Chris will hate me for exploiting his game to death.
