I like to play the old Command & Conquer games on skirmish mode. The only mode that I can win on. There are only 2 available on Steam and I would like a little more variety and maybe more eye-candy. Does anyone know of a game that has skirmish modes?

 Company of Heroes is pretty good...https://www.youtube....h?v=4674Kyiq76U

 I'm surprised it's still $20 bucks for a game this old, but I guess the good stuff still sells.

In Command & Conquer Kanes wrath there are there are Campaign, Skirmish, and Global Conquest, and multiplayer modes. Not sure if multiplayer works anymore, as I never play that way. Skirmish is just an individual war between 2 or more armies but you can dumb it down to suit your ability to play. In most games easy is still to hard for me. Especially shooters.

I loved C&C Generals Zero Hour, only can manage to play skirmish mode. Now all I have is Tiberium War and Kane's Wrath. I got those from Steam. I bought Company of Heroes today and it looks like I might be able to figure that out.

Does anyone know about the Warhammer games? Is that something that might be up my ally? I can also play Tower Defense games like Defense Grid 2. I have played them but I really suck at the Civilization games.

  I think you'll like it. The control panel was a little confusing at first for me, too. Once I got the hang of it, I really enjoyed the game. You might try this walkthrough site for the first couple of missions, it'll help get the hang of it quicker.

  I was going to suggest Defense Grid...I played both #1 and #2. They were a blast! After playing, I had this craving for raspberries! (inside joke)  :D

Can recommend Witcher 3, really enjoyed it. You can stick to main story or go and do lots of side stuff.

Couldn't seem to get the hang of Company of Heroes. I haven't been doing much in the way of gaming other than golf and bejeweled lately. I wish there was a modern game similar to the old Descent. I loved that game.

 the old Descent. I loved that game.

  lol...you do go back a ways, don't you?  :D  Well, it's your lucky day, my man. You can get Descent, Descent 2 and Descent 3 "bundled" for a whopping $7 bucks!  Not a modern version, tho.  :mellow:

https://store.steamp...273570/Descent/

Edit: just noticed 2 and 3 are 2014 releases, should be big jump in graphics from 1995...

Thanks, I got em and played Descent. Kind of getting used to it after all this time. Graphics on 2 and 3 are better but not great.

  Good deal... :D   

 At least your getting out cheap...I spent $55 bucks (with $5 discount)...But I am getting $280 bucks worth, so still not too a shabby a deal.
