    Sorry Yenz you are wrong. If you want to use real strategy you choose The Conquerors. :grin: StarCraft is one of the best EVER though.

      My favourite strategy game ever.

      X-com: Enemy Unknown
      X-com 2: Terror from the deep

      I haven't played any of the other parts since I couldn't get my hands on those. Anyone ever played those?

        Yeah, those ruled. X-Com: Enemy Unknown felt like a cross between some 50's sci-fi horror flick and the X-Files. It was creepy reading those alien autopsy reports your scientists sent to you, and researching new weapons was always fun. X-Com: Apacolypse was disipointing. It had to much micromanagement. I thought it was so-so.

          Hmm...anyone ever play Lords of the Realm? Not all that great of a game until you got the battles...but oh boy how fun could those battles be! Taking castles and skirmishes in different terrains, loads of fun! Archers and macemen were always my main force, they simply rocked.

            My brothers played x-com alot. They liked Apocalypse the best, because of gameplay, not because of graphics that were caused by the little money they had left. I didn't play it much.

              I still play that alot, and I also used to play Laser Squad on my old C64

              Too bad XCOM doesn't have multiplayer though... that was the one thing that rocked about Laser Squad.

                Starcraft owns, and I love playing with friends. Protos all the way baby! I'm a defense monster, and usually consentrate early game on that, then hit you hard and fast using at least 2 main battle groups and 1 secondary smaller group for taking out the builders and Main base.

                Warcraft 3 is pretty cool, IMO. The map editor is alot harder to use though, but that's alright, since we don't really need bad maps for a game like that. Everyone should try it, cause once you play that, you'll itch to see a starcraft II with similar looks.

                      I used to love RTS games, ever since Command and Conquer (me and my bro used to play it all the time), but IMO ever since Starcarft, they've just become a little..... "samey".

                      I bought Age of Mythology... played it about 4 times Don't get me wrong it's a good game and I admire the obvious hard work that has gone into it but it was all a game of tactics -> counter tactics -> counter, counter Tactics etc.....

                      I guess thats just me! Your right tho, Starcraft was a great game, extremely well balanced also.

                        Starcraft rocks, Warcraft 1 and 2 rocked, and Age of Empires II rocks. I love RTS games.

                        And yes, Protoss owns all others!

                          I agree, Starcraft is the best RTS of all time.

                          Protoss rule all.

                            I hate to disappoint you all but the Myth series are the BEST rts ever made. The 3 one was lacking but 1 and 2 are simply the best. Those of you who haven't played them (prolly all of you) please do. I hope you enjoy them as much as I have. They were made by Bungie (R.I.P.). Anyone notice how the best gaming companies never seem to stay in existence (except Blizzard). TLG went under, and Bungie was bought out by Microsucks. Its a shame.

                            *edit* just a side note. Halo originally was a bungie project. Its the reason Microsoft bought them out, because Halo looked so good and microsoft wanted to gain from the money it would bring in. Those of you who know how awesome Halo is(woulda been better if microsoft had left Bungie alone I promise, it also would have been released on the computer, not console) should have an idea of how kewl Myth is.

                              Myth II... definately. Bungie, and Looking Glass have to be the 2 best developers ever...

                              And I think you Marjarisan, might be interested in this thread.

                                Let us all observe a moment of silence in respect for Bungie.

                                That said, I was at the MacWorld when they demonstrated Halo. It was impressive, to say the least. Incidently, it is coming to mac later this year, I'm unsure if there is also a PC port in the works, but I'd expect there is. I've also heard from developers they're undoing much of the bastardization Microsoft forced on the game to make it work on a console.
