Let's hear it. Which single game, not a series, takes the cake for GOG strategy titles?

I don't think any of them fart.

The first two Oddworld games fart and Terraria has a 'fart in a jar'.
I have a soft spot for Total Annihilation, so I'll give that one my vote.

Great game, so long as you don't mind every unit on the board looking exactly the same. :P

My big blue square blew up your small red square. VICTORY! XD

PRRRRRT!

There. It smells even better than it sounds.
AI Wars?
That's a difficult choice. I don't think I can possibly single out just one that's my favourite. It'll have to be... 5 I think.

In no particular order:
Sacrifice
Dungeon Keeper
Hostile Waters: Antaeus Rising
Settlers II
Heroes of Might & Magic 2
Alpha Centauri was one of my favorites back in the day, but I don't know how well it has aged.
As for strategy games, real men play (and finish) KKND 2. If you can survive the "mission failed"-bug all the way to the end, you can survive pretty much anything, including death itself.

Should I ask? What does a fart look like?

Is it worth picking up if, as in my case, it does not have nostalgic value?

I strongly suspect that any civ fan, as well as most gamers who haven't yet played a civ game, will have serious difficulty escaping the vice like grip of any of the civ games or indeed of alpha centauri.

For what it's worth, apart from briefly checking out the demo when it came out, my first real attempt at alpha centauri was only a couple of years ago, and I massively enjoyed it. It has its own totally unique vibe going (reminds me a little of star trek universe come to think of it). The only thing that will stand in the way of a new player is the interface. It's not that it's bad. It's just really unusual and takes a little time to get used to.
