It was THAT good.
Would go with DoW1 because it was my very late introduction to RTS genre but it's too primitive and would not go back to it.
*before making account here in 2008 and on Steam somewhere in 2010-2011?
To clarify - my main source of full games back then were gaming magazines. There were like ~6 back then, now only one barely on the surface thanks to the Steam/GoG and internet....
Now I try my best with Chaos Gate (thanks for GoG for working copy) and I feel it's gonna be good (really love tactical games).
I just picked up all of the classic Warhammer games available on GOG though, maybe once I get around to playing them one will usurp DC as my favorite.
edit: I'm too young to have seen the heydays of the older warhammer games we now have on GOG, unfortunately.
I'd love to see a necromunda tactical shooter however :)
