Passion for Pixels: Ep 39 - Real Time Strategy (RTS) Games

Real Time Strategy (RTS) was one of the dominant gaming genres in the 1990s. We fondly remember franchises like Command & Conquer, Warcraft, Dungeon Keeper, Age of Empires and Starcraft but have seen many of these names lie dormant for over a decade. What happened to the RTS and will it ever come back?

On this episode of retro gaming podcast Passion for Pixels, we look into what defines an RTS, why they suddenly owned the PC gaming market in the 1990s, how well they play on consoles and what happened to Westwood, one of the most renowned RTS developers.
