OK. I'm giving this thread a new twist. My replies are based on just how good, how novel the game was at the time that it came out. In other words, how much new ground, imo, it broke.

1-Empire
2-RR Tycoon (original)
3-Civ
4-Wizardry 1
5-HOMM 1

Counter-strike (sorry!)

Mechwarrior 2
Avernum 2

The last 3 arent in my top 5 but would at least be in my top 20.  Since this is only nominations I thought it will be nice to throw in a few black sheep smile

Assuming you meant "invented"...

They may have refined standard RTS gameplay but I'm pretty sure Dune II and Herzog Zwei both predate the first Warcraft game.  And if you take a broader view of the term "real time strategy" (i.e. simply define it as a strategy game that takes place in real time) then you would have to give a nod to 1988's Modem Wars and 1984's "Air Support."

Definitely correct. I still have fond memories of being ridiculously excited when I built my first Devastator/Sonic tanks as the Harkonnen/Atreides sides in Dune 2. That was the first PC game to ever truly just suck hours and hours out of my life.

Now back to the topic at hand...

Homm2 (W/ Price of Loyalty)
Freespace 2

(I will leave off Marathon for the Mac, as it isn't a PC game.  Otherwise it would be here)

Big Jake, personally I took "PC game" simply to mean "personal computer game."  For instance, I played Ultima V on the Commodore 64 and it is on my list.  I guess it gets grandfathered in because there was an IBM version too, but I'd have picked it anyway.

I thought of another game that may or may not have been nominated: Dungeon Keeper and Dungeon Keeper 2.

By the way, when are we going to start voting? It's been more than a week.
