20 Best Real time Strategy Games of All Time

Chillopedia: Strategy games hold particular importance for the gaming community as these type of games involve a lot of thinking and require wit to outsmart the enemy. And that’s exactly what makes them so exciting. The feeling of outsmarting another person or even AI is heavenly for any gamer. (Age of Mythology, Civilization II, Command & Conquer: Generals, Culture, Rise Of Nations, Rome: Total War Complete, Sacrifice, StarCraft II: Wings of LIberty, Stronghold Crusader, The Settlers 7: Paths to a Kingdom, UFO: Enemy Unknown)

Not a bad article, although the list contains two turn-based strategy games, which are _not_ RTS titles.

Decent list.

Total War: Rome 2 is about to be #1 on that list though.

Aye, tbh list was a bit nostalgia-heavy (which is legitimate, no rules against that) but the later total wars were better put together.

Number 1 Should be Starcraft1, Sc2 would be Number 2.

Warcraft 2 was my all time favorite.
I remember many days spent skipping school and playing multilayer on HEAT.net

Anyone remember the legendary Dune II? Such a great game and I wish they would make a new Dune RTS.

Too right, half the games on that list, including the 'crafts', owe most of their gameplay mechanics to the venerable Dune 2. It's a bit of an ommission, actually, given the list is so nostalgia-based.

Command & Conquer Zero Hour is my most favourite strategy games next to warcraft 3. Wish blizzard would make warcraft 4

Just throwing this out there to see if there's any other fans going around: Total Annihilation absolutely has to be on my top list of the best RTS games ever. It wss beautifully balanced, had some awesome maps, cool units and great gameplay. I've sunk a lot of hours into that game, and still do thanks to the massive amount of mods available for it.

I used to play Total Annihilation in my IT lab at school on lunchbreaks. LAN games with my IT teacher and my friends where some of the best RTS experiences i've ever had. It should be on this list really.

OK! Not the bad list. But, where the f*** is Cossacks : European War ( surely better than Age Of Empires ), Shogun : Total War, Sudden Strike 1 and 2, Panzer Elite Warhammer : Shadow Of The Horned Rat and Dark Omen, Heroes Of Might And Magic 3 and 4... And Starcraft II is 1st on the list?? C'mon!!!
