The Sims 2 is a good game, its not strategy but it's a really fun game that lets u make your own characters and let them live thier lives in a house and get jobs and such. It's a point and click game pretty much like u asked.
Doom 3, excellent game. Great effects and game play. Not scary though:D
I would also reccomend sim city 2000, and sim city 3000 unlimited. They are excellent games with endless game play and tons of customization options. If you never herd of them, you just build a city. Very addictive.
age of empires 3 is pretty good it's based on revolutionary times
