I'd stay Warcraft 3, partially strategy.
Civilization great game, but I have to say the computer game is better than the board game.
Axis & Allies is amazing.
Obviously we all play Risk.
Age of Empires, another computer game.
As for online games, Fall of Empires, check it out you may like it.

Chess is probably a big one. I used to play Rise of Nations, C&Cs, and Starcraft when I was in High School. I only played the single player option of those games though, mostly because I was on 56k and the other because I was never that good :-p. Personally I like the turn based approach towards strategy gaming. Turn based is a true battle of strategies rather than management that most RTS's are about.

A fun, fourm based turn based set of games ranging from modern war, world war one, two, and even some silly ones like Lore.

Think of it as risk, but you buy different types of units and write actual plans when you invade other countries.

Played the first FE to actually be ported to GBA (think it's like... 6 or 7 in Japan). Not bad, loved the large variety of classes and promoted classes... so cool and y (especially Lyn; her upgrade is uber- badassness). Earlier missions are not quite so fun, but once you get promotes, gets just plain awesome.

Heh, just looking at my CD collection is like a history lesson in Strategy Gaming. I've got Age of Empires, Rise of Rome (AoE X-Pack), Age of Kings, The Conquerors (AoK X-Pack), Age of Mythology, The Titans (AoM X-Pack),
Dune, Dune II (Those two are way old, but still awesome.) Homeworld, Homeworld 2, Offworld Resource Base (Similar to Homeworld), Theocracy (Crap), Medieval: Total War (Best Strategy Game I've played!), Battlezone II (Cross between RTS and FPS, so it's awesome,) Stronghold 2 (Had potential, but was too slow and buggy), Dawn of War (Warhammer 40k, Yay!), Winter Assault (DoW X-Pack), Starcraft, Brood War (SC X-Pack), Civilisation II (The classic Turn-Based Strategy game. :)), Alpha Centauri (Civilisation in Space), Rise of Nations (Was alright, doesn't compare to the Age of Empires Series), Thrones and Patriots (RoN X-Pack,)... uh. That's all I can think of at the moment.

Thats not even counting my Shooters and RPG games.

I actually got linked here off HeavenGames, which is probably the worlds largest (purely) strategy gaming network, and I'm setting up a site similar to this at a place called The Whisper, which I moderate at. Slightly different game to Risk though. More... heated, and much more diplomacy.

I only really played Civ 3 and 4, but man they are awesome games, can't get enough of them really.

I'm not a huge fan of strategy games, mainly becuase I suck at them. *wonders what he's doing on an online Risk playing community playing people at Risk*. Although when we have friends round we tend to play some games like Warhammer 40k - Dawn of War, Empire Earth (number 1, number 2 is terrible). I prefer a bit of D&D myself :).
