While it's hard to believe that the "conclusion" of a franchise as storied and long running as Command & Conquer is not the biggest RTS release of the year, it's still kind of a big deal. To celebrate this big deal EA has released Command & Conquer Classics as freeware. This grouping of games includes all the original C&C games from the 90s including Tiberian Dawn, Tiberian Sun (with the Firestorm expansion), and Red Alert. Three great games for the price of none! Though Red Alert and Tiberian Dawn had been released for free before this is the first time for Tiberian Sun and the easiest its been to get all three ever.
Sadly, the games are old and don't really function on today's modern computers that well. You'll need a few things to get them up and running properly. If you're an RTS fan and for some reason missed these three it's probably worth your while to grab this, but otherwise it might be a bit too much downloading and rejiggering of the computer to really be worthwhile. Thanks to Big Download there are easy links below to all the programs and files you'll need to get things up and running.
