Favorite RTS?

In celebration of this wonderful new board, we'll kick things off right with a question.

What's your favorite RTS?

myself:

1) Starcraft and Starcraft: Brood War
2) Age of Empires II: The Age of Kings






*drinks root beer in celebration of new board*




That's the last time I buy anything just because it's furry!

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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...

Current Game: First Strike
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 , 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 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.

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

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

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).

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
