Do you ever have one of those moments where somebody asks you something that’s just ever so slightly adjacent to your field of work and you feel like you should know the answer but you don’t? I ran into one of those this week when MOP’s Tyler asked the whole team what MMORTS titles out there are actually worth putting time into.
RTS games aren’t my thing (I prefer turn-based 4X if I’m gonna gonna get my strategery on, and really I’m just an MMORPG person first and foremost), so I’ve never really paid enough attention to the MMORTS genre to truly know which ones are really meaty and cunning vs. which ones are kinda just there to rifle through your wallet as quickly as possible before you figure out they’re trash. But I bet some of you have!
So help me out here, for Tyler’s sake – let’s give him a sampling of new things to dig into for Not So Massively and prove to him that they’re not all low-budget cash-grabs. What’s the most awesome MMORTS title out there? What’s really, truly worth the install?
