A type of video game in which players exercise strategy along the way, typically to conquer enemies and reach a final destination without being eradicated. For example, to win, players decide which routes to take, what needs to be done and how to do it. Contrast with first-person shooter.
And in August of 2005, a 28-year-old South Korean gamer died from heart failure in Taegu after playing the classic real-time-strategy game Starcraft for almost 50 hours at a PC game room.
Their next game was a mix of Real Time Strategy with tactical elements.
This can be cut down with patience and practise but even then it doesn't change the fact that a mouse is a more accurate way to play certain games such as First Person Shooters and Real Time Strategy titles.
It can be compared to a combination of Real-Time-Strategy, action, and RPG.
