Since the earliest years of gaming, strategy games have been fulfilling fantasies of gamers worldwide, and there are so many games out there that do it just as epically as Civilization does. Check out this list of 10 games like Civilization to see all the ways you can conquer the world.

10) Endless Legend

Endless Legend is a large-scale 4x strategy game set uniquely in a fantasy setting, the world of Auriga, a planet filled with magic and monsters. You choose 1 faction out of 8 to play as, including undead medieval knights, sorcerers, insect-like creatures, and even a race of ancient dragons. Like in Civ 5, each faction has its own unique characteristics and backstory.

You set out upon a randomly generated world broken up into regions which are broken into hexagonal tiles, determined to build an empire. Thanks to the game's gorgeous graphics and sleek, modern interface, you're bound to have fun along the way. 

Build a city to be remembered in legend.

There are many different paths to victory. If you're feeling merciful you could aim for a diplomatic or economic approach to success, or you could become the world power by researching the best technology. And in the end, of course, there is always the old-fashioned option for all-out war. For its sleek design, pretty graphics, and endless replayability, we at Gamers Decide give Endless Legend a solid 5/5.
