Starcraft was awesome. i've stopped playing games for a bit now, but back in college my best friend and i would play for days.

i moved on to Warcraft III when it came out, and got as high as rank 16 in ladder on the west coast server, but had to finally quit cold turkey as i was sleeping only 4 hours and eating 1 meal a day at my worst (or greatest?) point.

i think WarIII might have been more simple fun, but Starcraft is still the better strategy game.

RTS: Warcraft III.

Turn-Based: Civ 4.

Coming out soon: Dominions 3. The best strategy game you've never heard of.

If we're nerds, what does that make you?


Anyways, I've been playing way too much civ IV, I literally sat down and played it for 5 hours today. My eyes hurt.

As for RTS, it doesn't get much better than Starcraft, Warcraft III or C&C: Red Alert. C&C: Generals isn't that bad either due to some of the non-sequitors that the characters say in game. (i.e. Suicide Bomb truck screaming ALLAH! ALLAH! ALLAH! before running into something. Definetely not PC, but whatever).

In Red Alert it was always fun to take the allied battleship down the sides of the map and nail stuff in the middle of the map. That unit was like a mobile, aquatic superweapon. The chronosphere was also hella fun, just teleport units into the middle of the ocean.

Warcraft III took some time to get used to, and after I started playing DOTA I couldn't play the actual game. I forgot all the build orders and such.

Starcraft: kekekekekkeke ^_^ no zerg rush 5 min. plz!
Yes, I was, uh... I was thinking about ordering the tape, the videotape... about the college girls and the... the wild... the wildness. They're going wild or something? Somebody told me... about going wild.

I read this thread yesterday and then started playing Civ IV again (had taken a few months off). About six hours later I realized how much time had passed. Thanks for ruining my life guys. Now I have to get back to my empire!
