YMMV / Command & Conquer

Series with their own YMMV pages:

Please only put examples here that cover multiple series, or C&C in general. Those pertaining to the individual series go on their respective pages.

  • Awesome Music: Has its own page.
  • Broken Base: There is a small but very dedicated and fanatical group of the Command & Conquer fandom who insist that the only real games were made before Westwood was bought out by EA Games. You are not allowed to like any game released after Red Alert 2 and are expected to declare war on EA.
  • Ear Worm: Countless, including "C&C Thang" from the original and "Hell March" from the Red Alert series.
  • Fanon Dis Continuity: Fans still debate on a number of issues, notably which ending of the first Red Alert leads to Tiberian Dawn. Word of God is the Allied ending.
  • Game-Breaker: Has its own page now.
  • Germans Love David Hasselhoff: The Tiberium and Red Alert games are very popular in Europe (Generals, not so much). One reason why is probably because Europe and European armies feature very heavily in the campaigns. The GDI campaign in the first game takes place in Europe and even features battles in many countries that don't get much media attention, like the Baltic republics. Meanwhile, the first Red Alert game took place entirely in Europe and the Allied commanding officers were a German and a Greek. Later games began to have more of an emphasis on America, but still had strong European involvement; the Tiberium series in particular continued to visit countries in Europe such as Norway and Switzerland, and Nod's main Temple is always found in the former Yugoslavia.
    • The Trope Namer himself even makes a cameo at the end of Red Alert 3.
  • Most Annoying Sound: "Silo needed."
    • The trick to avoid losing money through storage overflow is to construct a building and then cancel it. The Tiberium/Ore is converted into hard cash which frees up the need for Silos.
    • "CANNOT DEPLOY HERE." Especially recurring in Command and Conquer 3, where the build system is very restrictive and non-grid-based.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Has its own page.
  • Only the Creator Does It Right: Many fans of the older games do not think highly of EA's installments, save for Tiberium Wars and Red Alert 3, which were received somewhat better or just as well than the rest.
