Command & Conquer Suggestions Sought

The Official CnC Twitter Feed solicits suggestions for future games in the Command & Conquer series of real-time strategy games. Word is: "Tell us your idea on how to improve future cnc games. Maybe it will be your idea, which changes everything!" They point the way to A Community Developer Area in the C&C Forums as where to offer your thoughts. Thanks Computer and Video Games.

No DRM, no C&C4 rules, etc. Stick with old style!

How about C&C:Renegade 2?

This...

Generals & Zero Hour were the highlights to me - I didn't toy with the single player much, but the multiplayer is still some of the best fun (minus the optimization) I've had in the series.

Give it back to Westwood/Petroglyph.

I added my two cents...
Westwood no longer exists and few of the C&C people work at Petro. But hey Frank Klepacki is there and maybe that's all that matters?

My only suggestion is never destroy another C&C game with asinine always-online DRM disguised as a "feature".

you don't mean to say like chess, where both sides, black and white, have the exact same pieces, and tend to do the same things? oh gawd!

Wait...what? Seriously? Are you literally justifying a strategy game in which every player in a tournament uses the exact same build order and builds the exact same units? There is no sense in even trying to argue with an incompetent moron, so you win. Using your logic we'd be watching Starcraft players all use the same exact race, build order, and mass the same two units. I'm sure it'll be fantastic, just like watching competitive Command and Conquer 3.


Need I say the words "zerg rush"?

C&C/Redalert HD remake.

Make cash at a 10$ price point steam/psn/xbla

everybody loves the series again, take cash, build renegade/generals hybrid fps/rts, milk the sequel.

Blasphemy! Kane lives!



And this is exactly why C&C has seen its final hour. Look, Kane was an amazing antagonist, and he was fun for the first few games. But it's been beaten to death by now. The world's already been overrun by Tiberium, and by shitty Aliens, and Kane's died four times already, and it's just getting boring.

I remember watching a Command and Conquer tournament, actually sponsored by the developer I believe, in which every.single.player was doing the exact.same.thing. Strategy game? Pffttt, please.

As for suggestions, make sure that you actually build bases this time around. CRAZY idea for a C&C game, I know.

Disband the crap gameplay ideas found in C&C4. Just make a simple C&C RTS. The traditional formula. Thats all the fans want. And btw. ... finish Tiberium or make another shooter like Renegade.

Yeah, and dont make yearly sequels. Make one C&C game a few years. That may be not enough for your greedy investors, but it will be healthy in the long term for the franchise.

Now, where is my money?

This, verbatim.

I loved the C&C games of old. Once they started getting into the "new formula" it put me off on the games.

Allow me to build a stonking big base, crank out tons of units, and roll over my opponents... And yes, those cheesy cutscenes were what made the games as well, we need those back!

They really need to license the Flow Tech engine license from Gas Powered Games and make really large maps where you can feel like you’re in larger than life battles.

My only problem with that game was that sometimes I would just zoom way way out and macro-manage everything. And would only have to zoom in if it looked like I was getting creamed on one of the fronts.

Meanwhile you have the beautiful engine, but all you're seeing is red dots on a map.


But I agree, being stuck in a zoomed-in view has killed RTS for me. I'm not playing Diablo, I'm playing an RTS. Let me zoom out more.

That small ass crap they use for maps now is so old school that it’s a big turn off to play their games. They really need to think outside the box and go for a much larger world like Sup Com. And defiantly get rid of that constant online DRM.
