I Want That Old Time RTS

"I love real time strategy (RTS) games. I love the thrill of building up an impregnable fortress; watching your villagers expand your economy, attacking an enemy with a well rounded army. Those are the things I crave in an RTS. When I was young, I constantly played games like Age of Empires II, Starcraft and Rise of Nations (I still play them today), as well as Empire Earth, Command and Conquer, Homeworld, and Age of Mythology. Those games define the "classic" era of RTS games. Nowadays, the classic RTS games are impossibly hard to find. It seems that the industry has hit a slump. Sure, there are some bright spots (like Sins of a Solar Empire), but overall there are very few RTS games on the market. How did the RTS market come to this? How did a flourishing genre suddenly grind to a halt? The answers are very unsettling." -from Reid! (Age of Empires, Age of Empires III, Age of Empires III: The Asian Dynasties, Age of Empires III: The WarChiefs, Command & Conquer, Command & Conquer 3: Kane's Wrath, Command & Conquer 3: Red Alert 3 Ultimate Edition, Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars, Command & Conquer FPS, Command & Conquer The First Decade, Command & Conquer: Generals, Command & Conquer: Red Alert, Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3, Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 - Empire of the Rising Sun, Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 Ultimate Edition, Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3: Uprising, Command & Conquer: Renegade, Culture, Empire Earth III, Homeworld, Homeworld 2, Homeworld 3, PC, PS3, Rise Of Nations, Rise of Nations: Thrones & Patriots, Sins of a Solar Empire, Sins of a Solar Empire: Entrenchment, StarCraft, Starcraft II, Xbox 360)

I agree with the author
A good RTS is hard to come by now. I miss the good ol days when i used to play Command & Conquer, Age of Empires 3, Rise of Nations, all those classic games that i would spend hours on every day...its a shame there are no developers that are willing to step up to the plate and create a true killer, next-gen RTS.
