The 100 Greatest Games | 12 | Command & Conquer


While real-time strategy titles have been a gaming mainstay for years, it wasn't until Command & Conquer that one of the world's most complicated, convoluted and strangely addictive genres reached a wider audience of armchair generals. Most importantly, though, original copies shipped with two discs, making multiplayer carnage possible from the get-go and allowing C&C to become the first RTS title to offer completive online play. Now, with sales for the franchise breaking the 20 million mark, C&C is easily the most influential RTS in gaming history.

Memorable for...
Bald baddie Kane, played by Joseph D. Kucan. While most strategy games back in the day looked as dull as ditchwater, C&C used live-action video clips and bombastic set-pieces to weave players into the action. The sneering antagonist, glaring out at you beneath arched eyebrows, proved a camper-than-camp standout and has appeared in pretty much every instalment since.
