I swear DOTA better not make this list, because that game has ruined RTS almost entirely. Fucking e-sports bait.

EDIT: God damn it...

This list was a load of garbage.

Salty from the Multiplayer of Dawn of War 3 I see?

They're cynical attempt to bait someone into making a DOTA clone is just gross. They couldn't care less about the actual RTS elements or the campaign. They just want that sweet sweet e-sports fame.

No Enderal, hmm

The Long War mod isn't on the list. Shame.

I don't like DotA, but you can't blame it for MOBAs eclipsing RTS games. What's popular is always emulated, but the 'sin' of emulation lies with the emulators, not the original creator.

How did action quake for quake 2 not get a mention? It was made in the 90s. They wanted an action movie feel with real world weapons and locations. With out action quake there would likely have been no counter strike, no COD4. Action quake was the shape of FPS to come.

Why does 'Thief 2X: Shadows of the Metal Age' never show up in those lists and seems to be widely forgotten?

It's a Mod for 'Thief 2' that features a new story campaign with 13 missions, animated cutscenes, new voice overs/music and has basically the length of a fully priced game.

I guess Action Quake isn't well known or popular enough. These lists are generally not well researched and tend to pick obvious choices (although sometimes also really baffling ones).

This is missing Call of Chernobyl, Research and Development and Minerva...

At least the Dark Mod made it (its standalone now).
tbh, its a pretty shit list though, HL2 alone could fill all 8 even without the mods that became games like Chivalry, Stanley, Insurgency, CS, & Black Mesa.

Also list is missing Underhell, The Nameless Mod, Call of Chernobyl, Brutal Doom, Nightmare House 2, Human Error, STALKER COMPLETE, G-String, Estranged Act 1, Get a Life, Nihilium, Mission Improbable, Redsun 2020, 2027, Titan XCIV, Transmission Element 120, Sven Co-op, Poke 646, Research and Development, or Minerva
