A god game is a game for all of those people out there who said once in their life that they could do better than god. This is their chance to prove themselves, and have fun while in the process. The title "father of all god games" is generally attached to the creator of Populous and Black and White, Peter Molyneux.

Defining Characteristics[edit | edit source]

  • Generally very open-ended
  • Gives you control over a civilization so you can mold it
  • Does NOT give you complete control over every person (unless the game is also an RTS)
