The Raddest Installation Experience in 1995

I was 11 years old, and this game launched an era of PC gaming-filled youth.

Normally when installing software, you just mash on the next button until you get to the dialog box with “Finish” or “Agree” on it. Way back when, you had to manually select the sound and video cards compatible with your game. So this really blew me away the first time I experienced installation of Command and Conquer. (It got old after a few uninstalls– hard drive space was scarce that year at half a gigabyte capacity).

It is pretty neat how the developers took the time to create this to make a boring installation process entertaining.
