To this day I prefer playing Age of Mythology, Warcraft3 and Age of Empires as opposed to any modern day strategy games. Please tell me I am not the only person who still does this? Heck I went out of my way to install a gaming client just so I could still play those games online with other people.
What do you prefer? The old strategy games or the new games? Regardless of choice what would your current fav have to be?
So many hours spent with buddies in Command & Conquer Generals.
Also tons of fun with Warhammer 40K's Dark Crusade and Homeworld 2.
Starcraft 2, while fun, just doesn't compare for some reason.
I like a lot of old strategy games. Advance Wars on the GBA and Military Madness on TurboGrafx-16 are still great games that I love playing.

Holy shit, I used to have this game for the GBA and I've been trying to remember what it was called for years. All I remembered was the wrench in the logo. That was such a fun game, even though I don't think I ever even got close to beating it.
i play monopoly from time to time.
does that count???
Age of Empires is wonderful, although I do like AoEIII more than I or II. I'm a big fan of the home town mechanic. I must say though, Advance Wars holds a special place in my heart.

That's no strategy. That's just luck. :P

Good to hear! :) There are two Advance Wars games for GBA, two for the DS, and two older (rare) ones for the GB. Back then it was called GameBoy Wars. They've been fine-tuning the graphics through the whole series, while adding new campaigns and characters to each release, yet all the while keeping the classics. The Dual Strike (for DS) edition has hundreds of maps, apart from the regular story, minigames, etc. It's amazing how much content they pack into each release. According to the stats I've spent a few hundred hours on this game... still far from complete!

Starcraft (original + Brood War)

Yeah, dude. You should come over to the US and visit my brother. He holds WC3 and Age of Empires lan parties in his place. We had 6 people doing lan the last time I visited.
I get my ass beat, since I'm not very good at RTS, but it's still a lot of fun. I didn't even realize that Age of Empires was so old until I saw the copyright date. I thought the graphics looked great.

Age of Empires is definitely the first that comes to mind. Awesome game. There's also Final Fantasy Tactics, or even Tactics Ogre if you want to get even more archaic.
The first strategy game I know if is called Trek 73, which was originally made by some brainiacs at the University of Michigan in, you guessed it, 1973.
