    What is something that's technically an improvement over what came before it, but just feels really gross.

    The 32x

    Generals had great army design but I agree with woof on all of them.

    Also totally forgot Dustin Browder of StarCraft 2 fame worked on it.

    Fascinating meeting point of great game design and racism to make a neocon blush

    Funny thing I remember none of the factions were really good either. Also the GLA was comically evil with lots of chemical weapons. But also angry mobs with molotovs. It was not great.

    At least Nod is more silly about it. But also had suicide bombers in 3.

    At first it was all like technicals and stuff and I'm sure this is fine. Then the antrax tractor shows up

    China had the apcs you could shoot out of and load with dudes with mini guns. So silly.

    I mean none of the c&c games are really great. Also full of porn stars because Westwood was out of Las vegas.

    There was a whole cut system from GLA and China where they could capture infantry and take them to prison camps

    I give a lot of coding interviews in google docs and the very first step in the interview is a set of instructions, with screenshots, explaining how to turn off auto complete and autocorrect in google docs.

    I would say that probably 50% of candidates say they have done it but then autocorrect proceeds to continue changing their code, capitalizing shit, inserting smart quotes, fucking with indents, throughout the interview.

    I never say a word about it and just ignore it when scoring questions but we might as well end the interview when it happens because not one candidate that fails this first step ever gives an adequate performance.
