Since the mid-90s, real-time strategy games (RTS games for short) have become a staple video game, especially on PCs because mouse and keyboard controls allow the player to point at menus. position, drag the mouse across the screen, and select the troops they will use to attack other units.
Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty + Heart of the Swarm
Wings of Liberty and Heart of the Swarm take place after the events of the first part of Starcraft. Starcraft II is the sequel to the game considered by many to be one of the best real-time strategy games of all time. Building on top of Starcraft II is the Heart of the Swarm expansion pack, which adds a lot of new gameplay mechanics and makes Starcraft II, which we initially omitted from this list, worthy of a spot on the RTS Games list.
Warcraft 3: Reign of Chaos – RTS Games
As the third title in Warcraft and the sequel to the hugely popular Warcraft 2, Warcraft 3 has huge boots to fill, and they did so by including a realistic story that makes every RTS before in the market be ashamed. This is the first RTS to feature protagonists that can level up and equip items — RPG elements in short.
The game follows the story of Arthas, Thrall, and Tyrande Whisperwind as they traverse the lands of Azeroth led by armies of humans, orcs, and dark elves.
Total Annihilation is one of the first RTS games to feature realistic 3D units and structures in a 3D map that takes into account the vertical axis. In other words, weapons must be fired over buildings and over terrain to hit their target. The game also has an effect on velocity, so your bullets will have to guide moving targets or they will be very easy to miss.
The units in the game were designed by Chris Taylor, a professional who made each unit and construction in Total Annihilation something you want to play for real.
StarCraft – RTS Games
StarCraft is arguably the best competitive game of all time, surpassing every other mainstream game. The game is so popular that it is regularly shown on TV all over Korea. We don’t think we need to explain the game or its content.
Company of Heroes
Company of Heroes is one of the highest-rated RTS games of all time, and with good reason: it’s a damn game. While I could easily argue that the reason it’s #1 on this list is that it’s #1 on everyone else’s list, the reason we’re bringing it up here is purely from personal experience.
As an RTS, it’s the only one that makes me rave about my soldiers, all of which display some personality while earning the veteran rank so gives me a good reason to keep them around. . Not only is it a single-player campaign, expanded through the Tales of Valor and Opposing Fronts expansions, it also offers a great multiplayer experience that involves more of actual battlefield tactics instead of build orders. Enjoy your heart, StarCraft.
