    Default Game recommendation please.

    Not played any games on the PC for years but fancied having a bit of a gaming session .

    When I used to play PC games I always preferred your Age of Empire, Age Of Mythology, StarCraft type thing. Real Time Strategy I assume.

    So what is a bit more up to date? I saw StarCraft now has a 2 , so that is already on the list.

    Anything else I should be trying ????

    Thanks

    Love me an RTS, AoE 2 HD is well worth it.
    Still play Age of Empires 2 + 3, also check out the 8-bit series - [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] - I haven't played the latest one (invaders) but love the first two.

    Loved Age Of Mythology and always wished they had done a follow up :-(

    yeah they are ok, nothing special though. i couldnt get into them. once you have played all the games you have downloaded, dont forget to check out the mods for them - there are some spectacular mods out there for games that not only improve the original game, but almost always exceed what the game devs done already, and mods increase longevity...

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] is a lot of fun if you like micro-management type of games.. I would say it's one of the best from that genre.

    Since you're into RTS just as much as I am I would HIGHLY recommend [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] + [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], and if you're into the old TA games there's also [Only registered and activated users can see links. ].
    Other RTS games I would recommend are [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] + [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] plus the all new [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] was just released not so long ago I would check that out if you're into AoE etc.

    That should cover just some RTS games I know you would enjoy, but there has been a lot of RTS games that have come out if you want more suggestions.

    On the side if you tower defense games that require some problem solving skills similar to how RTS games handle I would recommend the "Creeper" series. They've had 4-5 games come out since, and my all time favorite is [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] in the series so far. The latest one changed up the formula a bit with actual "[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]" rather than stationary towers.

    And if you really want to get rekt I would recommend [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] which is like starcraft in space with brutal insane AI that learns.. and you don't want to piss it off lol.. highly challenging gameplay! It's for the hardcore RTS veteran type of players honestly. Casuals would hide in a shed if this was a game they had to play through.

    And lastly I would recommend [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] which is a lot like playing the old C&C Red Alert.. In fact I'm positive the guy who did the music for RA is the one responsible for 8-Bit's.
