Yeah, but EA/Origin access is just $7 a month and gives you access to over 50 games, including BF, ME, Crysis etc...

Might be an idea for those who want to try C&C without having to purchase it at full price. And if they don't like it then they still get to access all the other games for the rest of the month.

I used to play a metric ton of Command & Conquer: Generals a decade or so ago.
(probably going to get a lot of flak for this since the consensus is that it's "the worst of the C&C series"...)


The generals were all unique and required varied strategies to beat your opponent. For example, if you loaded out as the Chinese infantry general and were up against the GLA toxin general who melts your infantry with purple goo sprinkler systems, you employ the age-old tactic of quitting the match and re-queue.

But really, the different factions made for dynamic game play, the units constantly complain about needing shoes, and it's glorious to launch over a hundred nukes to crash the game.

And the mods weren't too bad either. Would play with the Reborn mod active, which changed up the different generals to add a few extra cool units and abilities.

I always played as George Bush...


It was always nice to be the general with pretty much every ability, dropping MOABs and mini nukes from B3 bombers from the comfort of my base. Jam-packed with more laser turrets, EMP patriot systems, and mortars than Ronald Reagan's Star Wares program.


You make me smile!

I mean, I love Red Alert 3 and tons of people hate it. I see no issue here.

I'm a fan of them all (except Renegade. That crap doesn't deserve the C&C badge), Favourites are definitely RA2 & Generals. With RA3 coming in a close 3rd.

Never played with mods though. I found it ruined the game.

Kane's Wrath is my favorite one, and I wish the series wasn't discontinued.

With what they did to the series at the end, I'm kinda glad it was.
