Born in 1995 with the game ''Command & Conquer'' ([[FanNickname commonly known as]] ''Tiberian Dawn'' following the release of later ''C&C'' games), ''C&C'' was one of the first popular Real-Time Strategy games and, along with titles such as ''DuneII'' and ''VideoGame/{{Warcraft}}'', helped to spread the genre and set gameplay standards still followed today, such as the [[FogOfWar shrouded map]], [[CommandAndConquerEconomy base construction]] [[ConstructAdditionalPylons and expansion]], [[YouRequireMoreVespeneGas resource harvesting]], [[TechTree tech trees]], [[FactionCalculus faction-specific units]] (not to mention [[ACommanderIsYou play styles]]), [[WeaponOfMassDestruction superweapons]], and of course, multiplayer combat. The original ''C&C'' was a smash hit revered as "nearly synonymous with RTS gaming" by reviewers and fans alike, and for the most part subsequent games have lived up to the first game's expectations.

* ''[[VideoGame/CommandAndConquerTiberianDawn Command & Conquer: Tiberian Dawn]]'' (1995): ''DuneII'' was the TropeCodifier, but this was the one that made the {{RTS}} genre, much like ''Catacomb Abyss'' and ''VideoGame/{{Doom}}'' for {{FPS}} games. A terrorist organization called the Brotherhood of Nod, led by the enigmatic Kane, use their control of many Tiberium sources to gain power. They start Tiberium research and harvesting to back their efforts to become [[NGOSuperpower a viable enemy]] to the Global Defence Initiative (GDI), a punched-up future arm of the United Nations. A war erupts between them that fights its way across Africa (Nod campaign) and Europe (GDI campaign). {{Canon}} says [[NoCanonForTheWicked the GDI won]].

* ''[[VideoGame/CommandAndConquerRedAlert3 Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3]]'' (2008): [[{{Camp}} The series just goes completely]] [[StealthPun gaga]]. The Soviet Union averts collapse by using its own time travel technology to eliminate Einstein, [[ButterflyOfDoom creating]] the Empire of the Rising Sun for a three-way free-for-all. The side with the [[WeaponizedAnimal attack dolphins]] and freeze ray-wielding helicopters is the boring one, compared to the Soviet armoured bears and transport units that shoot troops out of a cannon, or the Empire's MagicalGirl cross between [[Manga/{{Akira}} Tetsuo]] and [[Series/{{Firefly}} River Tam]], submersible planes and HumongousMecha; and they're led by J.K. Simmons, TimCurry and GeorgeTakei respectively. It's also notable for basing the entire campaign mode around cooperative play, with every mission having two armies controlled by separate players. This doesn't mean single player gameplay isn't possible, seeing as the game also supplies you with AI controlled "sub-commanders", each with their own personalities.

* ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquerTiberiumWars'' (2007): Set in 2047, another war between Nod and GDI erupts following Kane's reappearance. Invading aliens called the Scrin join as a third side. Tiberium continues to make the world even less habitable for humanity. Canonically, all sides' storylines are correct, with the series being written to show multiple perspectives. Generally considered as the best game in the Tiberium series so far, both in terms of gameplay and storyline.

** ''[[ColonCancer Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3: Uprising]]'' (2009): A download-only stand-alone expansion pack featuring 4 mini-campaigns: one for each faction set in the aftermath of the Allies' (canonic) victory and a bonus campaign telling the origin of Yuriko Omega. It also contains a "Commander's Challenge" mode featuring 50 unique challengers. Curiously, it doesn't contain any multiplayer elements, most likely due to the introduction of [[GameBreaker unbelievably overpowered units.]] While the full ''Uprising'' package is only for PC, the Commander's Challenge mode (sans campaigns) is available on PS3 and Xbox 360.

Canonically unconnected to the other series (and in fact bearing more resemblance to Ensemble's ''VideoGame/AgeOfEmpires'' and Blizzard's ''VideoGame/{{Starcraft}}'' and ''VideoGame/{{Warcraft}}'' series than ''Command & Conquer''), Generals is set TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture. The [[YourTerroristsAreOurFreedomFighters Global Liberation Army]], an Arab-ish terrorist organization RippedFromTheHeadlines after 9/11, has declared war on the People's Republic of China and the United States of America. Set in a realistic world with more-or-less existent, in-development, or theorized technology.
