The original C&C in 1995 was the single game that got me into gaming. I was singularly obsessed with it. Now, decades later… after having run a gaming clan for 15+ years and having played just about every game you can think of… I was so sad to see the video The Rise and Fall of Command & Conquer.
Thanks very much to GVMERS for making it, but it brings a tear to my eye knowing just how many cancellations happened, and I really wish the developers (many studios that they were) had gotten the chance to work on a truly GREAT game until completion. I think my favorite games from the series were the original Command & Conquer (pictured) and C&C Red Alert 2. I was also pretty obsessed with C&C Tiberian Sun at one point. I loved all the futuristic units in that one.
Nowadays, I’ve mostly given up on competitive gaming, but I still love playing the single-player campaigns for old games every once in a while. I went through Dark Forces, Jedi Knight, and Mysteries of the Sith recently, and I’m currently re-playing Jedi Outcast, and will move on to Jedi Academy when that’s done.
They sure don’t make ’em like they used to.
RIP Command & Conquer. You were the greatest. You will always have that special place in my heart.
