Well I know. Tough question. Why dont we make this poll the most popular poll at AE?Then we can actually send the results to Heaven Games or such?

My favorite is......

DUM DUM DUM DUM DUM

Rise of Nations.

Very nice graphics engine,CIV/AOK engines combined in gameplay. Good units and ofcourse, WW1.

My second is Imperialism which is my favorite all times game.

Europa Universalis. Too bad you didn't put it on your list.

Anyway, I voted AoE, because that was so very much better than the other games when it came out. Nowadays those games which are called RTS are all basicly the same.

The Age of Empires demo () made me interested in history and strategy games, and later I bought Age of Kings which still hasn't bored me. The Total War series and EU series are excellent games too, not really the typical RTS games, both belong to genres of their own.

Same here. Though EU is actually real time strategy per definition (and it actually contains strategy, as opposed to most "RTS" games), it's just that the label seem to have stuck on Age of Empires-like games.

Sad to see no one else voted for the Total War series.

Having played all the games listed above, i have found that Total War gives the highest replay valueave EU, but i found that EU gets very cumbersome and battles don't give the same excitement.

For Total War, every battle keeps you alert and you learn new things.

can only agree with fastspawn here...especially afetr Rome will come out. open a poll like that again after most members (interested in games) have played Rome for a while and let's see the difference.

voted for TW series although it is not a RTS but Turn Based.

There are so many that could be included, but it may not matter. When 1C releases Battlefield Command (Wartime Command in the states i guess) it may break ground. 1C and russian Oleg Maddox are also the makers of the best combat flight sim `IL2 Sturmovik.

I vote for Europa Universalis II.  I have played it for 2 years, with only a short intermission with RoN.

Yeah, Medieval Total war shouldn't count as an RTS.

Ironically, that's the game that's winning. lol

Greatest RTS series, I would say is Close Combat because it's the most unique. In terms of multiplayer popularity and how sucessful it was, then Warcraft III.

yes but the meat of Medieval is the combat, and that is real time.  Anyway the game poll is under strategy and we all know build and rush games should not be considered strategy.

True. The turn-based "strategy" part is just a sorry excuse to release the ecellent battle engine with. Anyway, that'd make it a real time tactical game, so in whatever way you look at it, it's not an rts

wrong, you re-use your units on the campaign map, so it's strategical as well. Multiplayer is tacical and Non-campaign battles are tactical, but campaign battes ARE strategical.

and actually Shogun was an adaption of the popular Shogun table-top game, they just included the battles to not make another Civ2-clone...

As said, the lousy strategy part is just a mould. The core of the game is the battles. A battle itself is not strategy. Strategy is when and where to fight. Anyway, the campaign is turnbased strategy, the battles real time tactics.  Doesn't matter though, it's only game labels where discussion...
