War is chaos, and few military strategy games simulate that feeling of absolute, out-of-control mayhem as well as Scourge of War: Gettysburg.

You play as a field commander in the American Civil War of the 1800s – an era of face-to-face exchanges of gunfire, tight unit formations, and spotty information dissemination. And when soldiers suddenly desert your forces for reasons unknown, or a runner delivers a message to you demanding you to spare some troops to assist another division, you’ll know the meaning of pure battleground confusion.

It’s a mentally taxing game that rewards sound tactics and quick decision-making skills. Definitely a unique entry on this list!
