The battle for the future has begun! Command and Conquer (C&C) was the grandaddy of the real-time strategy genre. Players take control of one of two 'factions' (good or evil) and missions revolve around building a base/compound and harvesting tiberium (a precious ore). Ore can be turned into resources like buildings, vehicles and weapons.

According to Microsoft's official word, the original Command Conquer games aren't compatible. But we beg to differ, why not download C&C and the sequal C&C Tiberian Sun now.
