I tried so many games, but this is so good! Try mods like experimental wars and you will love it!
Most fun RTS I've ever played in my life...! Take this with a grain of salt because I've only ever played this on Xbox
I understand this isn't like a lot of RTS games out there but that is what makes it so great and my favorite, the fact that it is all about utilizing strategy on the battle feild and not on resource gathering

I could go through the hassle of writing a clear and precise analysis on why it's easily the most perfect RTS ever made, but you newbies wouldn't understand anyways.
On top of nostalgia value, this game has a lot to credit it: an interesting and well developed plot, a quintessential RTS mechanic, cool units, even good atmosphere (including the funny quotes your units say if you click on them over and over again - and who could forget exploding sheep? ). Starcraft is basically just this game set in space (and the leftovers of a lost Warhammer 40k lisence), and frankly Warcraft 3 failed to meet the standard that this game set.
Combination of RTS with TPS. Love the fact how you need a great commander at the same time skillful player.
Absolute masterpiece. The previous Savage : Battle of Newerth was great too
EU 3 has no graphics but it deserves to be at top 5. One of the coolest RTS I've ever played.
The game is huge and complex.
If you really like strategy this is the game to try.
You can play it for a lot of hours.
This is the third best C&C game and the last one on this list, this game was extremely fun and addictive, compared to its horrible sequel ( C&C 4 ).
Black and white 2 and 1 are two of the greatest games I have ever played. These two beat the majority of the games on this list and the public are in need of the beautiful graphics and innovative gameplay.
Is the best way to describe this game. Grand strategy at its finest. It might not be on the ground controlling individual soldiers. Instead you control a country, any country from 1936 to 1948. With a huge tech tree with thousands of possibilities. I led the country of Germany, instead of starting war with Russia I calmed them down and focused all my forces to the west. Keeping England, Canada and America at bay as I had my scientists working on Nuclear technology. I then crossed the English channel as my strategic bombers dropped nukes on key British cities sending them back to the stone age. The possibilities are endless and you are given a large amount of freedom. Playing as the island nation of Haiti, I led my Haitian people to conquer the Dominican republic and then onto Cuba. Whereupon I leaned towards the Axis forces and started attacking small countries in south America. What other game lets you do that. None I say (Other then previous Hearts of Iron games)
Playing as the Soviet Union, telling the Molotov/Ribbentrop pact to bugger itself whereupon I take control of most of Europe. Amazing feeling. Which is why I believe this should have a place in the top 10.
Great game. I agree whole heartedly with the post below me. This is a fine grand strategy game, Uses the Europa Universalis engine. A fine WW2 era strategy sim.
So nice game. I love it. Everyone should try.
It's not much more than a RTS game, but it's still a very good game that is easily enjoyable. It's not a game with heroes with abilities, or with any jaw-dropping graphics, but if you're looking for just another RTS game that can give some fun times, look no farther than The Settlers.
