1.
Command & Conquer(sometimes written "Command and Conquer") is a large series of games created by the now-defunct Westwood Studios, the same people who brought you the video game incarnations of Dune and Blade Runner. Command & Conquer is one of the most critically acclaimed real-time strategy games, spawning several a few sequels, prequels, a handful of add-on packs, and various ports to 32-bit and 64-bit video game consoles. You play the part of either the Global Defense Inititive(GDI) or theBrotherhood of Nod(Nod) in your mission of taking control of the world through force. You build your bases and rally your forces, then promptly obliterate the opposing side as brutally as you can, leaving no survivors. It's basically a futuristic war game, in the most rudimentary definition.
