I’m listening to episode 170, and Rob is talking about Homeworld: Deserts of Kharak. They also briefly bring up how people see RTS as a dead genre… and I realised I haven’t followed it for years - despite it being one of my faves. The last game I bought was C&C 3: Tiberium wars (for the second time when I bought a PC.) I still play that sometimes. I’ll probably buy Homeworld: Deserts of Kharak when its price drops.
I presume the genre died down due to most gamers preferring consoles, and I never found console ports of RTS worked at all. But seeing I’m out of touch I’m wondering what people class as the best!?
For me it’s probably C&C 3: Tiberium wars (I don’t know if that was popular or not). But maybe that’s because its all I manage to play these days (skirmish). Love WarcraftIII, and AoE II. Even Age of Mythology!
