My favorite memories from C&C are the GDI reclaimation of Hammerfest Base, the Temple of Nod level from Renegade, and the Allied mission with the Pentagon from RA2.

I'll never forget Biehn's Nooooooooo!! as the Philadelphia is destroyed. I also enjoyed the Nod stealth missions for TS and Firestorm(especially capturing Jake Mcneil).

I don't have that one "favorite memory" from the series, but I have and I always will enjoy playing C&C games. They are just awesome.

My favorite memory is that back in the day C&C was the first game I bought with my own money. :D It was used, the discs had a few scratches and the feeling of uberawesomenes when the installer started and after few moments when EVA stated that installation complete. Just brilliant.

Also the first time I saw the Orca canyon cutscene! It was soooo cooool!

These images are rather strange lol.

1st pic doesnt show what is shown on the minimap?

2nd pic - displays a missions which doesnt feature tanks, yet still the player even has a flame tank.

Probably alpha or pr footage

My favorite memory is when I first played the penultimate soviet mission (in RA2). That was a true challenge. I also enjoyed all final missions in Tiberian Sun and FS.

Favorite memories
1) Tanya capturing Romanov (wearing only undergarments) after completing last Allied mission of RA2.
2) In RA1, after completing soviet campaign, Nadia kills Stalin by giving him poisoned tea, and reveals her position in Brotherhood. She didn't last long though LOL.
3) Hassan's execution in Tiberian Sun.

From the original game? That stupidly difficult mission where you have to rescuse Dr Mobious, using a damaged GDI base. WOW that was hard, at least for the age I was at the time.

As for the other games? That is a lot. I got a photographic memory so a lot of the things are really favourites of mine. Maybe the first time you got to play with Wolverines and Titans in Tiberian Sun (And a few missions after finding that spaceship!), or the intro of RA2 or...

Well, now I got to go and replay all the old games for celebration.
