Dune II: The Battle for Arrakis was my first strategy game on the Amiga. I loved it, one of my favourite games of my teen years. RTS games that followed were much enjoyed too, Warcraft II, Age of Empires II and later Starcraft, all available to play on the old Mac.
Safe to say I enjoyed RTS games a great deal way back then. Since though (apart from dabbling in Starcraft 2) not so much, mostly because I've not been a desktop gamer and here's where this thread comes in. Having just purchased my first PC the full gamut of strategy and in particular RTS games are available to me. The choice is bewildering and trying to hunt down an RTS thread unsuccessfully has led to me creating this one. I need recommendations and RTS enablement!
Should I pick up the Starcraft Remaster released last year? Is there anything to rumours of a Warcraft III remaster around the corner? The genre seems to be getting more varied offerings. Tooth and Tail, Northgard, and recent Early Access darling They are Billions all look to have a different take on this particular brand of strategy game.
I've bought Tooth and Tail to try on the PS4 as I've read it has been designed to played with a controller, will report back with thoughts. Any advice on my next RTS purchase appreciated, any must buys I've missed over the last decade or so?
Moving on my hope is this'll be a nice little thread for chatting, reminiscing and recommending Real Time Strategy games.
