I used to play the first C&C demo on my old Apple back in 96 or whenever it was. That was the best game ever back then!
I bought Generals 3/4 years back as one of he first games on this pc, and having been disspointed with both the red alerts ill tell you the Generals is indefinately the best one in the series for me! I loved it, and it is still a really god game now!
Now ill have you all know I hate RTS's and RPG's and the like with a vengeance. I find them boring and wierd (Go and fight the MAgical Orc Zeldar... Ill swap you 4 gallons of moons dyust for your hickory sword...)
