2BGC Ep. 19 – Command & Conquer (1995)

Command & Conquer (C&C) is as lot of things for the RTS genre, but it’s the first big title to deliver out of the box multiplayer through LAN, and then C&C Gold was one of the first RTS games to offer internet multiplayer. Developed by Westwood Studios and released in 1995 by Virgin Interactive, C&C offers a unique story told by both sides of a global conflict, the GDI and the Brotherhood of Nod, who each get their own single player campaign. The game play is polished pitting the two sides in asymmetrical warfare across varied missions that show the strengths and weaknesses of each fighting force. All this is set against the backdrop of goofy FMV that plots the dramatic arc of the Tiberium War with an amateur acting cast of Westwood Studios staff and also one professional actor, Joseph D. Kucan as Kane.
