Considered a legit sport in some countries. And for good reason! Windows Stijn Daneels (85)
Good but annoyingly overrated Windows Maw (884)
Those wizzards at Blizzard have done it again; Starcraft breaks all the bad habits that the real-time strategy genre had gotten into and looks good doing it too! Windows Wanderer48 (3)
Thou shall behold and bow down to #1 RTS of ALL TIME!! Windows Indra is stressed (20754)
