For centuries, the game of chess has been one of the most loved and treasured games around the world. There have been countless versions including many video games to come out featuring everything from the timeless classic board game to complete reincarnations that try to change it up for younger generations. There are literally thousands of people who have the game built into their daily routine. Sadly many younger gamers pass it off as too complicated or boring and never give chess much of a passing look. Either way, without chess we might not have half of the popular strategy games we do have today as most have evolved using the formula straight from the timeless classic.
