Title: Top RTS games
Post by: rollntider on January 16, 2017, 06:30:28 PM
Going through some stuff cleaning up I found some old games and made me think of my top RTS games.

My overall favorite is Starcraft 2 love that game

Starcraft / Brood war would probably be my 2nd

Submarine titans would probably be my 3rd favaorite. It was like Starcraft in the ocean but with 2 races. You had humans (good and bad races) and aliens
Come on GOG.com and make it available

the first 2 were remade HD and re released on steam. New expansions also have been released. These games are pretty much the same

Command and conquer Red Alert 2

Only problem with Broodwar is it doesn't work right on modern Windows OSes, and Blizzard said they'd "try and figure out a solution" a few years ago and nothing ever came of it.

also a few of those probably wont play on modern computers either. Thats why I am hoping GOG will rerelease some of those games.

Age of Empires 2 plays fine on windows 10 I never had any issues with it.

Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds however won't install on anything beyond windows XP. Would be nice if Steam would pick that one up I did enjoy it. Even though it was insanely easy.

Been playing a ton of Starcraft since the update patch (which I guess also coincided with the free release), it's amazing to see people on the servers for a change.  Can't wait for the remaster.
