Command & Conquer (a.k.a. Command & Conquer: Tiberian Dawn or simply C&C/C&C1; the game is also often unofficially called Command & Conquer 64 for the Nintendo 64 port) is a 1995 real-time strategy video game produced by Westwood Studios for MS-DOS and released internationally by Virgin Interactive. It was the first of twelve games to date to be released under the title Command & Conquer; six subsequent titles having since continued the story set as sequels with one acting as a prequel, along with the production of several spin-off games. Met with universal acclaim by consumers and critics, Command & Conquer was released for seven separate platforms along with becoming the initiator of the Command & Conquer franchise, and today generally is considered as the title which originally defined and popularized the modern real-time strategy genre.

How did they "ruin" anything? All they did was take CNC beyond the level of this game and actually did new things with it. If anything Westwood ruined CNC.

how can you say something like that, Command and Conquer is a classic, unlike you i still prefer red alert 2/Yuri's Revenge. well most likely, the thing is that, really most of the technology in previous red alert, tiberium games do not exist in tiberium wars or red alert 3. that was a major disappointment to me and probably many other fans, i mean where did it all go, the mechs, the giant mechs, the strange creatures that live in tiberium, etc. it bothers me to this day

He's half/right, EA is a publisher, it is not the developer after the RA2/Yuri's Revenge, it was EALA that developed Generals & up. Repeatedly slamming EA doesn't make much sense. Now the gameplay was getting a little stale with every entry into the series, and technically Westwood did sell themselves out and stop making C&C games with the release of Renegade and Earth & Beyond. It does not mean that RA2 or YR were necessarily bad games, but the last ones to include genuine improvements to the gameplay, such as units barricading themselves in buildings, and secondary function such as the infantry for the allies. So basically what he is saying is stop blaming EA, it is only a publisher, not the developer.

ea took westwood and pretty much ended the company. westood DIDNT TOUCH ANYTHING PAST RA2! ea put their own programmers and writers in and added what they thought was good instead of making another actual addition to C&C. so yes, ea can be blamed for this turd people call C&C now. if they put in better people or didnt wreck westwood we wouldnt be having this argument.

and yes westood sold themselves, but we can still yell at ea for making crap games with their work!
