Management video games put players into a scenario, tasking them with a variety of tasks from building, expanding, and managing using limited resources.
A big feature of a management game is its resources mechanic, and many will have players managing an economy where they will balance financial spend with expenditure, such as constructing buildings or zones, and selling or producing items or resources.
Management games come in many subgenres and below we go through several and what makes them different.
City-building games put the player in the role of a city-planner or leader, giving them full control of building placement, and forcing them to manage city resources, salaries, and work,.
Theme park video games have made a comeback in recent years, and like city-building games, although on a much smaller scale, task players with building placements, and resource management to satisfy guests of the park.
Colony management video games often have a much more detailed look at the genre, giving players control over every aspect of their colony, from resources, building, and even colonists, including combat.
Government management games are do not come along very often, but when they do they challenge players to lead a successful party into power, and can include mechanics such as spying, propaganda, speeches, and diplomacy.
Sports management games are decades old and successful titles are released every year, giving players control over their favorite teams across a number of sports, challenging them to reach the top of the sport and stay there, while keeping their staff, players, fans, and board happy, while not running the team into bankruptcy.
Management video games are nothing new, and they continue to be a success and can be some of our favorite games due to the change in pace, and diversity from many other genres. Building a successful economy, or sport’s team can be a satisfying experience, and why they continue to be best-sellers year-after-year.
Why Are We Doing a Top 15 Management Game List?
In the world of Management Games, fantastic games can be found at incredible prices but you can also be at a greater risk of being left disappointed.
Not all games reach their potential and get a release, unfortunately many games are left abandoned by their developers or are even released in a poor state and are yet still available to purchase on Steam.
Steam is in the business of selling games and sometimes that can mean a drop in quality in order to get more titles onto the Steam Store and available for purchase.
At Allkeyshop, we believe in quality over quantity and because of that we use every bit of data that Steam offers and we use that to provide the most detailed analysis of a game’s ranking.
How Do We Get Our Rankings?
Our rankings will take all available pieces of data into account, in particular we focus on the real ratings, real opinions and recommendations of those that play the game.
As a part of our ranking, we ensure that only those that own the game, have it currently available in their library and are logged into their account can vote for their favourite games. This, along with our other data, ensures we have the most accurate ranking system possible.
We only show the top 15 games so that you are not overwhelmed with hundreds of games and swamped in too much data. We plan on refreshing our top 15 each week, but we may change this plan if we find it has a real demand from you, our users.
