I did a search but couldn't find anything on this.
I'm interested in certain types of computer/console games but am not sure of what they are called.
For instance, I really like the Warcraft type of game. Would this be considered a strategy game or RPG?
I like the way the game is presented and the way you control your units. Similar to Age of Empires and Galactic Battlegrounds.
I am trying to find other games that use this style.

Look for Real Time Strategy games or RTS for short.

I'm not a huge fan of these games, so the only other game that comes to mind is Command & Conquer.

If you're looking for other RTS games to play, "Company of Heroes" has won many accolades, and I've seen plenty of advance praise for "Supreme Commander."

You'd better hide before she finds you...

An older game that I really like, was Fallout Tactics. Really a lot of fun, and it's now a Cheapie!
