Oooh oooh! I'm not into this type of game! :dozey:

I guess if Warcraft III counts, that would be my favorite.

SWGB all the way! I'm also really into Dawn of War at the moment, but I'm not sure if it will have the lasting appeal of SWGB.

Revan Solo 01-12-2005 02:27 AM

The Battle for Middleearth! The best game ever!

Alegis 01-12-2005 04:18 AM

1) Age of Mythology
2) Age of Empires II

;) yes I did play other RTS games.

El Sitherino 01-12-2005 08:05 AM

Age of Empires

BFME was a horrible let down. :(

Fishflesh 01-12-2005 08:17 AM

C&C generals and Galactic Battleground

of all time

Wraith 8 01-13-2005 12:37 AM

generals??? c&c generals SUCKED!

Pho3nix 01-13-2005 01:08 AM

Definately AoE I-II, The entire C&C series and Warcraft III.

Toonboy 01-13-2005 08:23 AM

With out question,

at the top SWGB and CC, based on the AOE engine but much faster. Then...

Axis and Allies RTS

starmark2k 01-13-2005 08:26 AM

Perimeter is one of the best and original RTS that has been made recently.

no it did not, warcraft 3 did.

lukeiamyourdad 01-14-2005 08:28 PM

Now now no fighting over other people's tastes, we don't want to start a flame war.

StarCraft is IMO, the best story driven RTS ever made. With its great storyline and unique and rich environment, no other games comes close to how this one affected me. Great characters, great unique civs, excellent gameplay and great support makes this game a classic of the genre.

Other then that, I really liked SWGB and AoK. There are other fun RTS out there but none got my attention as much as these did.

swphreak 01-14-2005 09:27 PM

Boy, I remember the first Age of Empires. I saw my older cousin playing it, and i fell in love with it.

Right now, BFME is really entertaining. There's also AoM, CnC Generals and Zero Hour.

Nokill 01-15-2005 12:19 AM

WC3 and the C&C serie's :D

Mike Windu 01-17-2005 05:11 PM

I still play Starcraft. It has a great Map editor, and I play a SC version of the battle of Helms Deep every couple of days with my friends ^^

Sabretooth 01-18-2005 12:22 AM

Age of Empires 2: The Age of Kings+The Conquerors

Warcraft III is also great.

Revan Solo 01-18-2005 04:17 AM

I cannot understand that nobody shouted Anno 1602! It was so great and it was my first PC game.

BeBop 01-28-2005 08:49 PM

Oooo toughy. Well here goes my top 3:

1: Rome: Total War
2: Homeworld
3: Homeworld2 (first is just better to me for some reason)

A modded version of BFME is also keeping me happy every once and a while.

What mod is it? Have you made it your own?

BeBop 01-29-2005 07:27 AM

No its not mine. I alternate between using Epic Warfare mod, and The Masters of Middle Earth Mod. 50 uruks to a battalion is more my style. And sauron... got to love sauron...

Compa_Mighty 01-29-2005 10:57 AM

The Conquerors, no doubt. Then SWGB:CC.

LordMalak 01-29-2005 09:28 PM

Command And Conquer Generals...Definitely

Couldnt say it better.

Dagobahn Eagle 03-29-2005 03:53 PM

Empires, Ground Control (OK, so that's a tactical game, not a strategy game, but oh well), Empire Earth, and Age of Empires 2. Not necessarily in that order.

The C&C series is good if you like that kind of... game, but I like more serious titles. The cliches and stereotypes of the C&C series get too childish at times:cool: , and I didn't like any other C&C game than Generals anyway...

BFME is not a bad game, in my opinion, but it's wa-a-a-y too simplistic and shallow for my liking. I prefer deep, involving titles.

Homeworld and Warlords are OK, but again, I like deeper games, so they're not my thing.

Warcraft III definetly has the world's best unit and building editor, and it's not a bad game either... But again, it's just not my type of game.

Galactic Battlegrounds was neat too.

THE VIGILANTE 07-25-2005 05:38 AM

Age of Emipires: 1&2 (great games)

Age of Mythology (not as much as Age of Empires)

LotR BfME (I like the fact that everything showed emotions)

Cpt. Bannon 07-25-2005 08:40 AM

The moon project/Lost souls (the same game, different campaign)

Something about that game I just can't get over. Maybe it has something to do with unlimited # of units controlled at once, or a ton of customizability with the units and buildings. Only thing missing from this game was a scripting tool with the map editor.

THE VIGILANTE 07-26-2005 08:42 AM


My friend was complaining about the same thing.
He eventually downloaded it from a mod from some website.

Emperor Devon 07-28-2005 01:39 PM

At the moment, Ground Control II. Empire at War will probably be much better, though.

Tokarev 07-31-2005 02:55 AM

I don't seem to have a particular order here...

1. C&C series (until RA2, Tiberian Sun was ok)
2. Age of Empires series
3. Star Craft
4. War Craft 3

A matter of opinion I suppose, but I would have to agree that it did... It was rushed.

Snafu7 07-31-2005 04:59 PM

The C&C games, and Starcraft

General Nitro 08-07-2005 01:23 AM

Clone Campaigns

Yeah, Anno 1602 was a great game. I never found it around though, it wasn't a "big" game. There was also another cool game called Moonbase Commander. It was very addictive. You have to command an AI taking over Moon. Various buildings are connected by glowing lines and you have to aim and shoot packs to deploy buildings. The whole game was like a mixture of puzzle and RTS (it was actually turn-based, come to think of it).

Jan Gaarni 08-07-2005 04:03 AM

I don't really play them anymore, but I had the most fun (and hours put into them) with these:
1. StarCraft (never got around to getting Brood Wars though)
2. Early C&C games (C&C, Red Alert)
3. Total Annihilation
4. WarCraft 3 (plus WFT)
5. Ground Control

Dark Sad Shadow 08-09-2005 12:36 AM

Force Commander OF COURSE!!!
Star craft Brood wars
AoE II Conqueror
Warcraft III the Frozen Throne

too bad rebellion was so... lame :D

lukeiamyourdad 08-09-2005 12:46 AM

Wait...your name seems so familiar...I've seen you somewhere...

Dark Sad Shadow 08-09-2005 12:48 AM

maybe... ;)
