    I hate RTS. RTT(tactics) is good however. "Strategy" in real life is almost never done in seconds and minutes, but only hours days even weeks.

    Total war series got it right, if only they could come up with some good A.I.

    Star Craft is THE original RTS. There are mods to make it into a RTT game, but they are complicated to install and, to be honest, a PC game shouldn't be that slow.

    How so? It was the first largely successful FTS game on the PC and is STILL more successful than any RTS to date. It may not have been the FIRST RTS, but it was the first to define the success of the genre, and all successful RTS games have afterwards followed a system similar to StarCraft.

    Command & Conquer is right besides StarCraft. Dune is pretty classical too.

    Eh... but they weren't as sucessful all around as SC has been- there are STILL sponsered tourny's for StarCraft... I personally don't know any game that has lasted this long except for one...

    Half Life.

    Dune was the shit.

    "Construction complete."

    I can still see the rocket turrets lining the alley of death launching their hellfire into the enemy who so foolishly allow themselves to be channeled so easily.

    And the stupid sandworms eating my spice harvesters.

    I remember Powermonger, but it didn't exactly follow the same pattern as Dune and Starcraft and the rest. It was more akin to Black and White.

    Hell, if you want to include Powermonger, then Utopia on the Intellivision would also fit. But, I think these games were a slightly different genre.

    i play games to make myself angry. i then go and beat homeless people with the anger for fun.

    so, in a way....i guess i indirectly play videogames for fun?

    well every man to his own. indirectly maybe.


    beating up the homeless is better than any game on the market. we should create a homeless RTS game, each of us gathers up a throng of homeless people, we each have a base camp and we launch raids on each other,

    i didnt mean game as in "not real" i mean in real life but we will call it a game.

    peace.

    there have been several movies similar...the first that comes to mind is "surviving the game" with ice t.....they hunted him, but same idea. there was also a van damme movie like that too.
