7 Worst RTS Games Available on Steam

The Settlers Online

If someone ever writes a book titled How to Kill a Franchise, then The Settlers Online would surely deserve its own chapter. As an entry into a classic RTS franchise historically praised for its combination of city-management simulation and simple yet solid combat mechanics, The Settlers Online is not even a shadow of its former self; in fact, it has more in common with games like FarmVille than it does with previous games in the series.

The latest and apparently last title in the series, this iteration was turned into a browser-based game that was not just downgraded graphically and in terms of gameplay, but also turned into a pay-to-win scheme where the players most willing to dish out the cash have the best chances of winning.

On the flipside, it is available for free, and apparently the uninstaller works pretty well, so there's that.
