ITT: post and discuss worth watching cinematics from strategy games
Be it openings, cut-scenes or trailers. On game's engine or not. Classics everyone know or obscure gems. They don't affect gameplay at all, but they're still fun to watch.
Starting off with the very best:

Get fucked by a horse, Blizzard.
>>
>>849153
The spaceship shot always felt off to me. Perhaps because it takes so long before Cuotl become significant in the plot of campaign. But it's a great intro.
>>
pretty sad that most universe at war cutscenes are not on youtube

might go change that
>>
>>849174
>Blizzard will never have this much SOUL again.
These cutscenes were probably the best they ever did. Didn't look like Toy Story like Starcraft ones but looked good enough for even the modern day.
>>

Not really, but fucking tell me this doesn't look like an intro cinematic to some sci-fi rts.

Repeating what the other anon said. The blizzard that made stuff like this is long dead and will never come back. Feelsbadman.
>>
>>849153
It's a crime this wasn't better appreciated.
>>
>>849441
Because Americans secretly want to be invaded.

It would unironically solve a lot of our political problems.
>>
>>849441
USA invasion scenarios are always interesting since mainland USA never was invaded by another country in real life. Unless you like count Independence War.

Yeah, I remember playing the fuck out of this game when I was a kid. And for the love of me, I can't say if that game was any good or not. I liked the comic though. It was really trying to out-edge Warhammer, which is amazing.

Well, the RA2 intro is the be-all end-all of all strategy game cutscenes so this thread is already over
>>
>>849155
I have few hundered hours in S2 and I never saw like half of those.
>>
>>849800
It wasn't very good. Half assed attempt at classic TW gameplay but in not-Warhammer world. And it was surprisingly hard.
I still loved paldin order faction.
>>
>>849441
It's one of those 'unthinkable' moments of modern (alt)history that are always buried somewhere in our subconsciousness - up there with Hitler invading the UK, the actual Operation Unthinkable, Eisenhower going nuclear retard in Korea, Soviets landing on the Moon, etc. etc.
>>
>>849923
>actual Operation Unthinkable
They should've done it. Defetaing USSR wasn't probably possible but they could've pushed them back east of Poland. Europe would be a better place and it's quite possible that China wouldn't turn communist it that scenario solving another long term problem.
>>
>>849153
Good job, anon. Thanks.
>>
>>849441
I guess it’s cool to pretend to be an underdog for once.

You are wrong.

>>849926
>Defetaing USSR wasn't probably possible but they could've pushed them back east of Poland
Realistically Allies would get their shit pushed in and USSR control would spread from Vladivostok to Bordeaux.
They would collapse eventually just like irl maybe even faster and then western europe would be full of based post-communist countries similar to todays Hungary, also no immigrants.
A man can dream...

I'm living in one of those. It's hardly as great as you imagine it.
>>
>>850023
I remeber playing this as a kid. It was awfuly mediocre. Definition of 4 or 5/10. The intro is nice tough.
>>
>>849778
>USA invasion scenarios are always interesting
The whole thing about it being 'interesting' boils down to America not being the aggressor for a change.
>>
>>850037
>America not being the aggressor for a change
I disagree. America defending against the attacking Soviets, OpFor, RedFor or WhateverFor is pretty common trope in video games and films. Mothing new there.
>>
>>850003
>Realistically Allies would get their shit pushed in and USSR control would spread from Vladivostok to Bordeaux.

Hardly. The US were a far more mobile, better trained, and better equipped force and relatively fresh with excellent logistics, and, by the way, atomic weapons. The Soviets meanwhile were overstretched and exhausted from a long and terrible campaign that never would have been possible without US lend lease, nevermind that their breakthrough strategy would be perfectly countered by US atomics. Sure, maybe they'd be the more grizzled, but I believe Patton would beat Zhukov or Vasilevsky any day.
>>
>>850317
>would have been possible without US lend lease
This presumption is as annoying as disregarding lend lease entirely.
Fucking armchair fucks, the only way to shut you all up is to become a fucking historian and professional military leader, it's so tiresome to listen to all of those fools no matter the discipline.
ANNOYING.

Yes, in American media... you don't see the connection.

Total classic
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k6mZZiI4ShQ
Although I quite hate how the narrator says "complete elimination" instead of "total annihilation". As cheesy as such title drop would be. The set up is all there already.
>>
>>852924
fuck that kicks ass
>>
>>849800
>>849906
For me it's a game with ok gameplay that gets elevated by the great atmosphere. I replayed it a few times over the years and I still like it, even with all it's shortcomings like the stupid AI. Like they way you can exploit enemy archers on walls with heroes and mages since spells have longer range than arrows and the ai archers don't even try to run away from walls as you burn them with fireballs. Mages overall are pretty overpowered, especial liches with their ability to create from just one corpse a couple skeletons and a vampire.
>>

I'm still mad firaxis just left BE to die instead of actually fixing it

I must be the only one who unironically loved it

Stalin and Khrushchev both said they would have lost without Lend-Lease anon, do you think you know better than them?
