Hi Guys,

I was just looking through my collection of games and found a bunch of old and new RTS Games.

So What RTS's do you think are the best?

I think it is:

1. Starcraft
2. Warcraft 3
3. C&C Generals

So what do you think?

Myth II
Myth: TFL
Myth III

in that order. No base building, pure military strategy.

I'm rather partial to a bit of Warrior Kings myself.

But the best is prolly the original Command & Conquer, IMHO.

My vote goes to Myth II.

I also recommend Warrior Kings, which is akin to Starcraft done right.

I've yet to play a game that I've enjoyed more than Myth II so it gets my vote for best RTS. :P Warcraft 3 and it's expansion are also pretty fun.

Aww :(

A well, I just thought I'd inform you in case you had missed it. Too bad it's so large. I want to get the full game, but at the moment I have a heat of RTS games I have yet to beat, so I'll have to work my way through that before getting new ones.

I just might go with SimAnt as well.

I was that ant.

By the way, anyone familiar with the film "Phase 4"?

Like hell it isn't, Sim Ant is the first real RTS in fact. You command forces by point and click, build them up, its has all the classic makings of a RTS. Respect the SimAnt foo'
