Re: Will we ever get a rts title?

Jul 30, 2013

As everyone has mentioned, RTS with a gamepad can be rough. I am sure it can be done but when companies who specialize in PC games try to adapt them to consoles it doesn't always work. Look at how simplistic Dragon Age Origins was on console compared to PC. If some brave developer put in the time to get it right I am sure they could make a good one but there isn't much precedent and, to be honest, game developers don't seem as daring as they once were.

Civilization isn't an RTS, it is a TBS (turn-based strategy) game. But regardless, there are a few on the PS3 right now.

 

- Civilization Revolution

- Tom Clancy's Endwar

- Command & COnquer Red Alert 3

- Disgaea 3

- Disgaea 4

- Worms Revolution (unorthodox, but still fun)

- XCOM: Enemy Unknown

- RUSE

- Awesomenauts (It is a MOBA/Strategy hybrid)

- Valkyria Chronicles

- Stormrise

 


I like how you tell the OP Civ isn't RTS (which you're correct about) and then go on to list a bunch of TBSs and TRPGs.


I listed strategy games, since a list of RTS games would be really small and he probably wouldn't be satisfied with it. I answered his question, is that a bad thing?

Well, hate to say it, but no, you really didn't answer his question.

 

RTSs are not the same as a TBS, and are not the same as TRPGs.

 

They require a completely different mindset and strategem to play, and often require fast reflexts, exceptional micromanagement and awareness of the entire map and what everyone is doing while executing your own plans. You can't take your time, you must make split-second decisions. 

They are played in real-time, like a shooter is. TBSs are, and TRPGs are often turn-based, meaning you can take your time (or take more time, if there are time-limits on rounds), analyze exactly what is going on, and then execute your move.

But he said he was interested in Civilization, so he obviously has an interest in TBS.

 

Its whatever, I'm not saying that the genres are the same.
