Below is a list of the various RTS games I know well, and my army/faction/race preference for each. Strategies vary between games pretty dramatically.
Total Annihilation (TAUCP)
Starcraft: Brood War
Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition
Age of Mythology: Extended Edition
Supreme Commander: Forged Alliance (Total Mayhem Mod)
Age of Empires III: The Asian Dynasties (The Improvement Mod)
Dawn of War: Soulstorm (Ultimate Apocalypse Mod)
- Tau Empire
- Space Marines
- Dark Eldar
Battle for Middle-Earth II: Rise of the Witch-King (Edain Mod)
I grew up playing Age of Empires with my 3 brothers. It will always hold a special place in my heart.
I know it. For me it was Age of Empires II and Total Annihilation. Nostalgia to the max.
We played Age of Empires 1, 2, and 3. The second is the one we played the most.
For sure, because it was an awesome game, especially towards the end. My friend Andy and I were the last two players left in a 5 person FFA. He was down to his last villager, and running all over the map for a place to hide and rebuild. He walled himself into a corner and tried to rebuild his civ. It was hopeless, but truly hilarious. I got him after a good 15 minutes of searching every square inch of the map.
Oh, man! I was the MASTER at branching off a group of villagers when I saw things were hopeless, hiding, and rebuilding. I would usually send them off in two or three directions and set up multiple camps so when my enemies (brothers) came looking for me, they thought they had found my last resistance when I still had another one (or two) hiding elsewhere.
Hahaha, that’s brilliant. Still play any RTS games?
Very rarely my brothers and I will still play AoE. I have Starcraft, but I haven’t played it very much. I really enjoy playing with the Zerg when I play, I like their strange buildingness and the sounds they make.
You’d love the Tyranids in Ultimate Apocalypse. The hive must grow.
