Same, all 3 races were fun though. I used to play against friends but large skirmish battles against multiple computer AI were also really fun as well as custom maps on Battle.net like marine line defence.

Every 5 years or so i install the game again to relive the former glory and have to play a few rounds with all 3, Terran, Zerg & Protoss.

Terran, because you can bunker down with Vulture Mines, Siege Tanks, AA Missile Turrets/Gladiators & of course, Bunkers. As nothing can penetrate your defence then you have plenty of time to develop your multiple Nuclear Missiles and send Ghosts in to launch them on the enemy - great fun!

Protoss, because you can build a massive defence of Pylons & Cannons that is also virtually impenetrable if done correctly and then recruit a huge number of Carriers that can float around the map destroying whole enemy bases in no time at all.

Zerg, all about the fast build/recruit times, building a high number of Hatchery's very quickly and rushing the enemy, the Creep Colony buildings and Lurkers are also nice.

Great game, funnily enough I've never bothered to try SC2.

Command and conquer: Generals was quite fun to play against bots aswell. The US team had bunkers and snipers, a combination that eliminated infantry so quickly. The chinese had hackers and nuclear missiles. And then there were the insurgents.. such a fun game.

We usually ended up having so many units that the game just couldn't handle them and playing became more like a slideshow amused

Absolutely, love C&C Gemerals and the Zero Hour expansion, another game i have to play every now and then, in fact last year i reinstalled it. Also had those issues in the past with big frame-rate drops from so many units/sprites being rendered but these days with better graphics cards it's less of a problem.

I enjoyed the original C&Q, Red Alert, Red Alert 2 & Yuri's Revenge as well, all good games.

Shout out to the Cossacks series as well, loved those games. I played Cossacks 3 last because i couldn't get the original games to run on Windows 10, it's pretty decent but requires some tweaking to get the big battles that i like.

I remember Hulk 2003 for PC ... I was so little. Although one of my first and best games ought to be Wings of Honour, flying game (always 2003), I enjoyed it so much. Ooooh the memories! Apache Longbow Assault (2004) oh boy, so realistic apache simulator, wow.

The last one was really realistic at the time, just watch this brief gameplay, wow:
