What makes the "best" RTS?
In the MFO Rise of Nations Forum someone was arguing that Starcraft is the best RTS game ever. I disagreed. Starcraft is one of the best games ever made, but IMO, there are certain things missing from Starcraft that are in other games.
  • Unit experience (units can level up, like Red Alert 2 and Kohan)

  • Unit facing (tactical maneuver is important, like RON and Kohan)

  • Random maps (variety, like all the other games)

  • Logistics (some representation of supply requirements, like RON and Kohan)

  • Customizable units (like Kohan)

  • Customizable unit AI (as in Dark Reign)
These things significantly add to the experience.
