    Specifically bombs. It's horrible to imagine them being used in the real world which is why I'd rather rain their death on people made of pixels and polygons.

    I know the Civ games have that option, but I'm having trouble remembering others.

    Starcraft and Command & Conquer come to mind.

    Heavy Weapon on Xbox360/One and maybe other platforms.

    It is a 2d game.

    playing as the Skaven race in Total War Warhammer II you can nuke. Very satisfying dropping it on a cluster of units.

    Fallout 76 seems like an obvious newer game that does.

    Total Annihilation. Before Krogoth was introduced, that was your typical end-game.

    Also, Fallout 3 has a nuclear weapon sitting in the middle of the town, available for the player to detonate.

    DEFCON is all about nukes- although not graphically pleasing explosions if that's what you are looking for.

    Otherwise most RTS based in a modern or future setting have nukes. Red Alert, Supreme Commander, Starcraft, Act of War, etc.

    If you don't mind taking out hundreds of arachnids instead of humans, Starship Troopers allows you to wield a nuke-launcher.

    MDK has some sort of nuke.

    I think mercenaries 2 also has it.

    TA and Supreme Commander both had nukes, and anti nuke systems. Loved building bases against 2-3 Ai teams and having to basically build an iron shield of anti-missile sites, with backups as sometimes the enemy would send 3-4 nukes at once to overwhelm your defensive launchers.
