The Real-Time Strategy genre of video games continues to grow each and every year. There was a time when RTS games where the only reason you would ever own a PC that could run games. Classic titles like the Command & Conquer series, Dune, Z, KKND, StarCraft and many more would give you the tools to build powerful armies and crush anyone who stands in your way. It was just as fulfilling and fun to spam hundreds of tanks and mow down enemies, as it was to plan your attack carefully while coming up with cunning tactics for a precision attack. These classic titles and many others paved the way for the standard that modern RTS games would eventually meet.
