    Default NTs play Starcraft/RTS FTW? (gg in advance)

    I started this thread rather than derailing the other one, because I honestly just want to hear NTs talk about their favorite real time strategy games.

    When I was younger I used to adore Starcraft, and I can clearly remember my parents giving me a lecture that the game was going to take over my life completely, because I would get stuck in an hours-long battle with a friend. Currently my favorite RTS title is homeworld 2, but I like it mainly because of the over-arching story and because you can operate the controls like you do a 3D modeling program. I think the gameplay's flow is a little long-winded, which is why no one ever wants to play a game against me that I know, because amassing a star fleet from scratch and then slowly pitting it against someone else's star fleet (also built painstakingly from scratch) is a time-consuming process!

    In any case, I invite any NT types (and hell, other types too) to converse openly about the strategy games that have affected them o'er the years.

    I used to love these types of games when I was younger. I can't believe you didn't mention command and conquer, age of empires or diablo. Those games were some of my favorites in middle school. I would have never figured out what a necropheliac was if it wasn't for R.T.Ss, Necromancers were my favorite type!
    My cold, snide, intellectual life is just a veneer, behind which lies the plywood of loneliness.

    I love RTS games. I play them often. But I'm an INFP so I can't participate.

    Red Alert 2, I played that game for years. I still do, hate RA3 thought.
    Age of empires II comes into play here as well.
    Star craft was neat as well.

    I love non RTS games as well. I loved the Heroes series.

    Yes I do. I am playing them for years and I haven't lost interest.

    Let me guess you got the thread idea from my thread?
    I was thinking about opening thread like this. Probably I still will because topics are not identical.



    I played almost all strategy games that ever worth something.
    For me it was not unusual to play this kinds of games 15+ hours a day.

    Form RTS I mostly liked all Blizzard games,all C&C games plus some historical.

    Pretty much all of the major ones. Warcraft I was the main start - played it over 2400 modems with friend... later, Kali and Heat (where I racked up 29 straight hours of playtime!)

    Don't play like that anymore - most strategy games now aren't progressive... just redone old versions. SC was the last major balanced-but-different strategy game I enjoyed. Some empire building games were fun (Sins of a Solar Empire = best designed space game ever!), or hybrids, but... yah. No time, no interest.

    GL HF!

    I use to play Age of Empires, and Empire Earth, they are a little old now, but I still play them sometimes. Empire Earth was one of the best RTS I feel.
    I still play Dawn of War, Battlestations Midway, Civilization Revolution, Sins of a Solar Empire.
    I play a lot of FPS games too.
    RTS and FPS are my favorite genres.

    DMeth, what is your opinion on the Sid Meier stuff? I've never really tried it, but it sounds awesome in an Asimovian "let's leap great eras of history in the course of our gameplay" kind of deal.
