The very first Total War game was none other than 2000’s Shogun. Set between the 15th and 17th centuries, you assume the role of a daimyo whose goal is to conquer the entirety of Japan using a combination of military strength, trade, espionage, diplomacy, and religion.

Though its 2D sprites and quick, simple battles may not have aged too well, Shogun was a technical masterpiece during its time. Today it is renowned as the title that kicked off the landmark series.
