Well, you didn't mention it, but I'm assuming you've played the Command & Conquer series ...?

The only I've played it's SC II. I am not into strategy games at all, but this one totally loved it. Tried C&C a little, it'a good game too, but didn't kept my attention at all.

If you like AoE3, you should try AoM if you haven't already. I loved that game, there's nothing like destroying your enemy with a giant titan and a bunch of minotaurs while using gods powers.

The best RTS game I've ever played was Age of Mythology. Absolutely amazing. If you like AoE III, this is even better.

Starcraft / Starcraft II are still the undisputed king of RTS games. Despite many who don't like them.

Show me other RTS games that have an entire professional league in Korea (and moving worldwide) with prizes in the tens of thousands of dollars.. televised games.. it's truly a national phenomenon over there.

And not DOTA. That's not a RTS game. It's got RTS mechanics, but it's a hero battle arena. I mean games where you harvest resources, build bases and armies, and fight.

There have been plenty of good contenders along the way. Age of Empires had it's moments. The original Majesty game. Some of the C&C titles. Total Annihilation/Supreme Commander are pretty good..

But none of them have the unparalleled success and recognition of Starcraft.

if your after something light.
Space Pirates and Zombies is a good choice.

Has a mixture of Action, Strategy, RPG.

Oh it's a really popular game, must mean it's the best without question then.

I guess COD is best FPS of all time, seeing as theres competitions for that aswell.

We can all stop debating about it now guys. COD wins.

It's no harder than the Age of Empires games or any other RTS in that breed. And if you're looking at games that are like you describe, Command & Conquer is pretty much the daddy of that genre (or it was).

If you really do want a game like that, then you're going to want to play C&C.

The best I've played? Well... I guess it'll be Red Alert 2. I didn't like RA3 as much as RA2, because RA2 just seems more robust and just seems more badass.
