Command & Conquer Westwood Studios, Inc. / Virgin Interactive Entertainment, Inc. 1995

Command & Conquer develops ideas from Westwood's previous game Dune 2, forming a real-time strategy (RTS) game. The control system involves selecting units with the mouse and then directing them, while the opponents make their moves without waiting for a "turn" to end. The game focuses on a war between two organizations, The Brotherhood of Nod and the Global Defense Initiative. The player can take control of either side for more than 15 missions. Both have different units and structures, including artillery, tanks and light infantry. In most missions, a base needs to be built first in order to build new units and structures. Most important are the harvesters, which collect Tiberium and deliver it to a refinery, where it's converted into money, thus funding the construction of a base and an army. A Windows 95 version came out in 1997 as Special Gold Edition with a tweaked graphics engine that allows the display of SVGA graphics. It was released after the success of the prequel Command & Conquer: Red Alert, which already featured the tweaked engine. An internet option for 2 players worldwide against each other was added. Includes the C&C Theme Pack with screen savers and desktop wallpapers. The game also features FMV mission briefings and victory cutscenes. To mark the 12th anniversary of the franchise, Electronic Arts, the current publisher and owner of the series, released the game for free in 2007.
