Total war series. Not a pure rts but the battles are real time.

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

Still a series worth playing regardless. :)

I won't argue with that. I've only played Medieval 2, but I really want to try more of the series now.

Sacrifice is one of my favorite RTS games, and it is incredibly unique. I'd love to see a modern update of it.

Crysis of RTS games? You mean great graphics and shallow gameplay? :P

Sins of a Solar Empire is great. Try out the Empire Earth series too, play the first and second ones. You can purchase them on GOG. Never really got into the Total War games, played maybe like two of them but I hear they are pretty good.

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.

You've excluded the worthwhile ones sooo.... Age of Empires 3 is all I can think of.
