Top RTS games
« 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


Rise of Nations - re released on steam, still love it


Age of Empires 2 / Mythology / star wars




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


Dawn of War 2


Spent many hours on this and for those that dont like resource management this game may be for you.

Dark Colony


Come on GOG.com make this game available.

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.
If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense.
Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn't.
And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn't be. And what it wouldn't be, it would.

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.
