Strategy games weren’t entirely excommunicated from consoles. Tactical RPGs thrived, from Final Fantasy Tactics to Valkyria Chronicles. The latter, in particular, took advantage of console and handheld control schemes, so there was no sense that you’d be better off with a mouse and keyboard. There was an abundance of them on handheld consoles, and being able to play large, complex strategy games on the bus or on the loo was something of a revelation. They’ve been making their way onto PC recently, too. Valkyria Chronicles appeared in 2014, followed by Valkyria Chronicles4 in September, along with several entries in the devilish Disgaea series.
