    AOE2 is v. cool but my 56k modem wont allow online play (cutoff after 2 hours ).

    CS1.4 is very cool, best version I have played but laggy on some servers.

    And the King of all great games has to be Worms - in any format you care to mention. It is so great its unbelievable, I have to get a copy of Worms World Party, or whatever the online version is called!!

    fish u wouldnt call fallout a stradgy game because it is a turn-based rpg game
    No, I didn't include it because I've never played it.

    i just hate the word turn based, it is so lame.
    Reminds me of someone...

    AOE2 has alot of stradegy involvoled.
    U must have accruate timing, and rite troops to fight the nme
    unless ur playing lvl eaziest (or is there lvl < eziest)
    StarCraft and Warcraft III have all of the above, plus damage type, armour type, spells, modifiers, terrain bonuses etc.

    AOE may involve a lot of strategy, but these games involve much more

    >>i noticed one bug, unless it was just on one mission. planted a satchel charge and retreated to a very safe distance. couldn't resist looking thru binoclears to view my handiwork as i set it off.
    but when i did it killed me even tho i was laying down miles away !! obviously assumed i was closer since i was looking at it magnified ???

    Never noticed that.
    Sometimes you could be hidden and an enemy would run right over you, even as you tried to shoot him. Cause he did not see you he does not come back. You can then turn around and shoot him in the back.

    >>friendly fire also a major problem !!! especially with me, you don't want to be in front of me !! it is hard to id the enemy/friendlies and not to be trigger happy !!

    We had someone like that. Killed the other two with his M60 before running me over with a truck. All in one mission.
    My problem was with the hostages, not many survive with me in the rescue team.

    Ok, your castle cannot attack so I don't have to worry. Your 500 knights won't last with 1:500 men ratio, and I didn't mention what kind of men it is... (guys with swords? catapult? flamethrowers!!)

    >StarCraft and Warcraft III have all of the above, plus damage type, armour type, spells, modifiers, terrain bonuses etc. <

    read: "castles cannot attack".

    they can't attack, so how can they kill wraiths troupes?

    Yes, for newbies. Warcraft 3 has much needed filters, so you can filter out all the lame mass money maps.

    This is some mistakes that almost all RTS games make... Some lame arrows can take out a catapult.

    Close Combats had done a great job on this... only other tanks and rockets can kill tanks. Flamethrowers cannot kill tanks.

    >Yes, for newbies. Warcraft 3 has much needed filters, so you can filter out all the lame mass money maps.<

    Then no-one will play with non-money's. They should set it that if resource counts is higher than certain limits, it will not count.

    They have that feature... any non-blizzard certified map won't count on your record.. and if they're not stupid, they won't certify any mass money maps.

    who are you people kidding?

    REAL RTS players play Total ANnihilation.

    Jeez, you people are such uncultured RTS players. I like TA so much mroe than Starcraft/Warcraft and the Command and Conquer games.
