It's funny, the only RTS game I play IS StarCraft. Still, these all look like they have their own appeal. They're not trying to take away from StarCraft, and they provide a great alternative.

Wow, that comment sounded really ignorant. The entire RTS genre does not revolve around StarCraft. Try testing the waters outside of your Blizzard safety net and play something fresh and original. Who knows, maybe you'll actually like it.

I always find it funny when Blizzard fanboys only play Blizzard games. They are missing out on so much more from gaming, particularly in the case of StarCraft 2 which is almost identical to its predecessor. It offers nothing new, no innovation, it's the same old crap in a shiny new coat of paint and everyone is eating it up. I will never understand it.

I was torn between including Red Alert 2 and Empire at War. Red Alert 2 is easily the better game, But Empire At War is easily the best Star Wars RTS, and I just love it. Definite special mention to Red Alert 2 though. Especially the music. And Tanya.
