maybe once a month, i play some DOTA, best game on warcraft

sloth4urluv5978d ago

Agree, I play that from time to time with some friends online.
I dont understand why devs still use disc protection, its so freaking anoying. Alot of times if there is a game I want to play but I have to put the cd in each time I want to play it, I usually wont play it.

They should just have it like windows or norton antivirus where when you install the game it checks to make sure your cd key is unique then activates the games. If you dont have internet then dial in and do a phone activation...

Squad writes "A decade ago they were a dominant force in gaming. There were always a plethora of tower defense games being offered, including classics like Plants vs. Zombies and Iron Brigade. Even some famous franchises – such as Final Fantasy – dipped their toes into the tower defense genre."

You got it backwards, it's more popular now. Also you show zero statistics to back up your premise.

History of Real-Time Strategy: The Peak (1999 - 2003)

VGChartz's Taneli Palola: "As I've previously alluded to several times in this article series, it's quite difficult to separate the history of real-time strategy into specific periods of time based on any one criterion. Much of this is because there are always several different directions the genre is pushing towards, and even when I label this particular period as 'the peak', there are once again arguments that can be made for several other points of time as the real high point of the genre.

All this depends on the point of view one takes, whether it's looking strictly at commercial success, critical acclaim, the number of high profile franchises, or taking any number of other perspectives. For the purposes of this article the peak is taken to be the years during which most of the high profile RTS series received their most successful and beloved entries. In that sense it can be argued that the beginning of this period was the release of the original StarCraft in 1998, but we're beginning just a little bit later, at the start of 1999, as multiple different series had now established themselves and were pushing the genre forward, each in their own unique way."
