HEll NO!! Westwood Set the standards of RTS games! Remember Dune 2, Command & Conquer: Tiberium Dawn, Red Alert, Sole Survivor?!!?!
Hell YES! Blizzard released WarCraft I before all of them. Others' have never even came close to Blizzard in earth-shaking storylines. The dominance of story woven into the warps and wefts of the game can be felt. Did Red Alert ever motivate its players to write Red Alert Fiction? No, but SC Fiction is a genre for itself. Many have used their talents to extend and strengthen the story.
And Westwood has always been backed up by stupid American-Messiah ideas. Red Alert 2 unfairly showed the US as the angel come to rescue. The older versions of C&C had less biased ideas behind them but also had no special point of interest.
The latest one, C&C Generals is total idiocy in its full sense. It shows the Red Army cooperating with the US to defeat the terrorists, hah, what a PACK OF LIES! And who are the terrorists? Units depicted with common Arabic clothes, are all Arabs terrorists? No, but Westwood Studios wants you to believe everyone with a green girdle is terrorist! And where do these terrorist Arabs live? In Iraq, Iran and Afghanistan! Westwood didn't even bother to find out that Iranian don't wear Arabic clothes and that they don't speak Arabic!
THEY DIDN'T EVEN TRY TO DISTORT THE FACTS WITH SUBTLETY, THEY JUST SPAT OUT A PACK OF LIES FOR IDIOTS LIKE THEMSELVES TO BELIEVE!
Is that their only problem? Let them wipe Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan and North Korea out of the map, will then peace be reigning? NO! Then they will find someone else to fight because their life hangs to their fights, they can't live without their billions coming out of oil and weapons.
