Command & Conquer was absolutely brilliant. C&C (the very first one) in particular. I didnt like the series as much after that. Westwood studios.. what ever happened to them? I heard they got bought up by EA? and changed their name... ? anyone?

yes, EA (damn bastards) bought Westwood, and fired all their employees. Then EA took charge of CnC, making RA n all after. Renegade was made by Westwood, it's still 1 of my fav FPS's, Renegade 2 was in production till EA bought WW(westwood). now, evrythign is a faliure, CnC Gen was a big mastake.

Ahh bit of research shows this: EA Los Angeles.

Founded in 1995 as DreamWorks Interactive. In February 2000, Electronic Arts acquired DreamWorks Interactive and the studio became Electronic Arts Los Angeles. Electronic Arts Los Angeles (EALA) was formed by the fusion of three EA studios: EALA (DreamWorks version), Westwood Studios, and EA Pacific. EALA continues to drive innovation in game technology and design by employing a first-class creative staff of game and film industry talent. EALA develops and produces games for the PlayStation 2, Xbox, GameCube, Game Boy Advance, and the PC. In January 2004, EALA relocated to a new, custom-designed West Los Angeles campus, which can house an additional 650+ development experts and creative artists, planned to be hired before the end of the decade.
