Back in the day, it was always a pleasure to see your favorite game enter a top list. PC Gamer UK was, and still is one of the most prominent sites whose lists reflect the opinion of a majority of players. In the past PC Gamer, UK was one of a few relevant gaming sites whose opinion moved the masses. In the modern times, we have hundreds of sites that try to become relevant, and many of them fail. It’s safe to say that PC Gamer is still one of the most prominent gaming sites that brings us news about games and creates lists of favorite games both from the present and the past.
The PC Gamer issue that acknowledged the brilliance of C&C franchise
The 2007 issue of PC Gamer UK was the ever-famous Top 100 Issue. For the PCGUK mag, the Top 100 list is composed of the writers 100 most loved games. And all of us were pleased to inform everyone that two Command and Conquer games have made it into the list.
Command and Conquer: Red Alert 2 was at the Number 60
Command and Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars at Number 58
It was always good to see C&C getting in on the PCGUK list, just a shame they weren’t at higher positions.
How C&C franchise fares in 2017
Some of the C&C games are over twenty years old, and it’s interesting to see how they fare after all that time. Many games become irrelevant after a year or two (modern games) or in some cases after four or five years (older games). C&C franchise contains games that are always relevant, no matter how much time passes. Proof that backs up this statement is the latest top 100 PC games that PC Gamer posted. At that list, you will find C&C: Red Alert 2 at a 42rd place which is an excellent thing for a game that is seventeen years old.
Many other C&C games survived until modern times due to impressive multiplayer and modding community that is always working on something new.
