Default Cold War Conflicts

One of the great things about PC gaming is the cult followings certain games develop. There are so many different markets and niches out there that have game worthy computers that for almost every type of geek there is a game tailor made for him (I suppose it could be a as well, but get real). One of these cult classics is the German born CDV Sudden Strike series which has spawned a healthy internet community which has developed many mods, even the commercially marketed Sudden Stroke series of expansion discs. Sudden Strike’s success stemmed out of a methodical style of gameplay not yet seen in real time strategy games. There were classics such as Homeworld that required a thought out strategy and judicious employment of units and resources, but Sudden Strike called for a much more realistic approach due to limited force structures and specialized units crucial to completing objectives. It was this style of command and control that bought Sudden Strike credit with the grognards and probably lost its mainstream appeal as well, which is sad but the nature of the industry.
