Old School Games!
Wondering how many people still play the old school RTS games, like:
AOE 1 + Rise of Rome
AOE 2 + Conquorers
Rise of Nations + Thrones & Patriots
Starcraft + Broodwar
Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds
Or any others that i can't think of off the top of my head.
Which is your most faviorite?
I know for me, mine is AOE 1 & 2, but i'm also a huge fan of RON as well. Never fully got into starcraft but i love starcraft 2.
Don't know how i forgot SWGB, that has to be one of the best, its so easy to mod. I remember adding all these new units and buildings with Gene editor and some other tool. The unit & building code was written in such a way that it was really easy to understand. I know one mod i created allowed for each CIV to have a unique hero (i.e Yoda, Darth Maul, Vadar, etc...) costing 1000 of each resource. But i never could figure out how to limit it to just 1 unit at a time.
On a side, i wonder how hard it would be to make a RTS game for linux, that is to do with Linux. Like SuperTux Kart?

StarCraft was never really my cup o' tea, but my wife loves it.
But we both love the Heroes of Might and Magic series (I know... not RTS). Kind of a tough call to say which I like more... #3 or #4.

You can either play one of several campaigns, or multi-player with friends.
The goal varies on what you decide to play. Sometimes you have to conquer the land. Other times, be the first to find a certain artifact.
The different factions have creature and spell classes that you can use, which can change the way you have to use your resources.
Check out their website: Age of Heroes - Heroes of Might and Magic 1 to 5
HOMM 3 plays natively on Linux.
#4 can play natively, but I forget how I got it to do so.

Though I am not a gamer on computers. I am a happy camper with my Play Station 1 with 40+ games.

The garage link name tickled my fancy and I did this as help for another Linux user on another forum also. It was done just to learn how it is done mostly and I learned something new. I play it once in a while.

Free format space combat each with a linear plot to follow should you wish. They were very Elite like in their levels of freedom. Both had lots of FMV as was common at the time. Technically Hardwar was set in the craters on Titan rather than space but the description still fits.
And I have just reminded myself of Conflict Freespace which was another one. It truly was the golden age for gaming ^_^

Lol, "The Best Kind"... Sounds kool.
Does anybody know if Steam will ever be ported to Linux, or is poor old Linux just left in the lurch again! With our use of hacks and ports like Wine.
I don't understand it sometimes, why game developers or platforms like steam don't want to make a linux compatible version, why do they think that there is no market there?
I'm pretty sure if where willing to pay for the Windows OS or Mac OSX and the games that run on that system, they would be more than willing to pay at least for the game that runs natively on Linux lol.
