If you're not afraid of humorous approach to war, you can also try C&C Red Alert 3. The mechanics in all C&C games are similar, so unless you're tied strongly to 3D graphics, you can even try older installments in the series or check C&C Remastered Collection. Although keep in mind that the pace is slower in these games.Which RTS games do you know, that are comparable to C&C Generals in terms of philosophy/vibe/gameplay?
[Mod edit: changed title for clarity from "Tips for RTS games comparable to C&C Generals?".]
The video reminds me of all those Dune games that are in the publisher's limbo. Man, I'd love to revisit Dune 2000 and Emperor Battle for Dune, but I have huge doubts whether this will be possible. If GOG can't do it, no one will...
uh, I suggest that you visit the OpenRA website, because their engine is also capable of running Dune 2000 "Gamemodes" 😉 which is essentially a fan remake from what I can gather.The video reminds me of all those Dune games that are in the publisher's limbo.

From what I understand, you need the original game to run it with OpenRA. Unfortunately I don't own Dune 2000.
oof, well that's a bummer. are you sure that the original game is needed to play a "dune 2000" mode on OpenRA? ⛱From what I understand, you need the original game to run it with OpenRA. Unfortunately I don't own Dune 2000.
well its funny how they're fine with a new movie being mad but not the games or any re-releases
That's a drag. About the licensing problems. I'd love to see the Dune 2000 Gruntmods Edition put in GOG and, thus, made perfectly legal.
A bit sad that no one will know the reason why the family isn't giving the rights to make a game or at least republish the original on GOG. 🥲Kingmen
All the rights apparently had reverted to Frank Herbert’s family, and when GOG contacted them they just said no.
I didn't install it yet, but on the download page there's a clear statement "The OpenRA mods require files from the original games, which are used under the license granted by the C&C Franchise Modding Guidelines. "oof, well that's a bummer. are you sure that the original game is needed to play a "dune 2000" mode on OpenRA? ⛱
I read claims otherwise, but I haven't tried.
Yeah, that's very sad. Apparently no Dune game (except the most recent one) is available on digital distribution platforms. But GOG has managed to bring to life Blade Runner, many Star Trek games and a lot of other games, so I wouldn't lose hope.also I looked for dune on GOG and found that there's only a wishlist.
There's no easy answer when it comes to abandonware. It's a grey area, because the term doesn't exist in the legal system of any country. Of course given the fact that the game is no longer in sale no one loses profits when you download it from abandonware site. To be perfectly legal however you have to buy a used boxed version and these have price of a new AAA title on auction portals. But again, I wouldn't condemn people who download old games that aren't available in digital and boxed distribution.There are website's out there too claiming to have it as "abandonware".
