Apart from Company of Heroes series, Command and Conquer series, StarCraft series and Warcraft series, which other RTS games are the best? Preferably it needs to be available on steam or origin.

Age of Empires/Mythology series
Rise of Nations
AI War
Warlords: Battlecry series (on GOG, which is better than Steam or Origin)
Empire Earth I and II (once again, on GOG... But do NOT get III)

PC hardware doesn't need to match console hardware in price when PC gamers save literal thousands from the software they buy.

I fought a bunch of higher-level idiots on a GameFAQs message board one time, it was pretty cool and I gained a couple experience levels-AquaHaute

Not an RTS at all since all real time elements are purely at the tactical level. All strategic level elements are turn-based. =P
