Developed by Westwood Studios way back in 1995 Command & Conquer: Tiberian Dawn exploded onto the PC and instantly became a best seller and at the same time did for RTS games what Doom did for FPS games. It’s very easy to pick up and play, two great factions to play, GDI, who are the goodies who are trying to protect the world from terrorisom and make it a better place to live, then you got the Brotherhood of Nod, the terrorist scum bent on world domination at any cost with an evil megalomaniac at it’s helm, known only as Kane.
Both factions have their own stories and over 60 minutes of FMV and pre rendered cut scenes to give you mission briefings and tot ell the story. FMV was massive at the time but now it’s rarely seen in games, other than newer C&C games.
Command & Conquer boasts the best soundtrack in a game and always gets you pumped when playing it and it never EVER gets old, it’s got music that you just don’t hear these days, it’s one of a kind!
The game’s simplicity is one of the reasons I’m still playing it 17 years later, and will probably still be playing it in 17 years time, providing I can get it running on Windows 15. It’s your classic scissor paper stone scenario (or rock paper scissor for my cousins across the Atlantic) infantry pwn the tanks, tanks pwn other tanks and that damn Flame Tank pwns your infantry and your buildings!
Here’s to one of the best game franchises of all time (at least until EA got a hold of it) and a game that sits firmly and arrogantly in my top 10, knowing it can never be beaten, Command & Conquer!
