and OMG how could i forget total annihilation that was like my first rts i owned i played that game for sooo long!
i guess because its in a cd case style thing so its in my cd rack
but that was an awsome game wich made me buy supreme commander (1) because that game is based on it and has almost every aspect still in it but then bigger maps and updated look although i dont know if id say for the better... SC2 though crushed everything the SC(and total an) game stood for! for which ill never forgive square-enix!!!
but i guess i own every good rts then...
guess that is something that cant be avoided when you mostly play rts :P (altho i like most games(except zombie ****))
thanks so far tho played CoH and it made my card heat up crazy (110C). still good game tho so when i get my new fan system i hope i can play it more!
especially because a lot of those games are a bit older (at least the good ones are) and the newer ones all thought they needed to change everything that made rts good (base building) look at dawn of war 2 you have a main base thing where you have to upgrade it 2 times to have access to all units and that's it so no research no building tank yards or barracks or something like that just pure unit production and Supreme commander lets you build a bit more but also changed the series so much that its not so fun anymore.
and that is my problem at the moment
There are loads and loads for Total Annihilation and Battle For Middle Earth I & II and I'm not sure about other games but theres probably one or two more that you can mod as well
This way you can squeeze just a bit more unique gameplay out of the games
Perhaps you should try a other genre?
RPG perhaps if you like tech-tree and evolving things
or a FPS if you want a total different approach
and also . play online , it extents the games lifetime by so much
sure you will get owned at first , but pratice makes perfect

but i also play fps and rpg even some simulation games and i play a couple of mmo's (few free and sto).
but the game companies only are releasing fps and rpg's (which are also changing with more fps elements often).
so that's why i decided to ask the best gaming community out there because i figured i doubt i know all games out there .
(still waiting for fable 3 on pc! )
but thanks everyone for the input and i hope this thread is useful for more people that love rts games and see a few names here they don't know
