Whom Gods Annoy

The only reason I even keep my old PS2 hooked up is because sports games don't work on the PC and sometimes I get a real jones for playing some Madden or College Hoops.
As far as I can tell, Halo Wars is getting flak because it's designed much like an average PC RTS. When the console inputs can't keep up, they responded by cutting complexity to uncomfortably shallow levels. So, it seems to me the criticism is because this particular game would be better if it was designed for the PC to begin with, the complexity cuts wouldn't have had to be made, and the player was more firmly in control.quack35 said:Seriously? Everyone has agreed with this, just look at any thread discussing Halo wars.
I Agree! Console RTS games, are like you target 3 units at a time and move them, when you've got an army consisting of like 20 people. PC is better in every way, you can focus on the economy at the same time as progressing with a large army, and not like in the console version when you have to do one thing at a time.TheBarrel said:After the release of Halo Wars. It really hits me that RTS games should not be on the console. It is just so much easier, more diverse and better looking on the computer. As opposed to the dumbed down clunky version for the 360.
Let me know if you a)agree/disagree with me and b)if theres any other games that should not be on the console or computer.
What? StarCraft 64 was pretty good, its only real down side was the fact once the AI blob starts moving after the game would slow down right when they give the command to go to your base the it stopped slowing down. Always a nice warning before the storm of Zergs. It had some minor issues like less character diolog when clicking one unit multipal times PC version they had more than one hidden diolog line, N64 just had 1 for each unit. There was no online on the N64 so there was no choice for split screen multiplayer, however it did make for great co-op, not very good vs though.Crash486 said:I really hope you're kidding, those titles were absolutely awful on consoles. They're shining examples of what a console RTS shouldn't be.LumiHawke said:Last time any console had good RTS games, it was really the N64, the version of Command and Conquer on the N64 was actually better than it's PC/PS1 counter parts. Starcraft worked well on the N64 as well,
