I would imagine that if you find them boring, it's just a genre that just doesn't appeal to you. I don't like them either, and I can't really get into FPS games, either. Those two, and the Tales of series. Which is strange, because I love RPGs, regardless of the type.

Always preferred TBS games personally. More room for actual strategy being the determining factor in winning rather than who can reach the highest clicks per minute.

TB = turn-based
RT = real-time

Self-explanatory.

Some RTS games boil down to either who can run through a predetermined build order the fastest, or who can micromanage the f*** out of the other guy...Those types of RTS kinda suck...

Age of Empires 3 however requires a bit of strategy and it moves a bit slower than some games so you're not penalized for not being jacked up on 5 hour energy. You might also try AI War....as an RTS it requires a LOT more strategy, but it's also kinda hard to get into... Then again, if you find RTS in general boring then AI War will probably be boredom on steroids.

You know what? not all games are for all people. If you don't like em, don't force yourself.

They can be kind of boring. But they are also the type of game that you get into more , and become more appealing the more you invest into them.
