While this isn't my favorite game of all time, the intro still makes me smile...love the theme song at 2:!4!

For me it was this. I had Atari, Nintendo and Sega before and I waited a bit trying to decide between the Sega Saturn or the new Playstation. Bought the playstation and put in the demo disc. After seeing THAT intro I had a big smile on my face and knew I'd bought the right console for me.

I have the Steam, and the GoG versions. Probably 2nd or 3rd all time in hours played, vs. World of Warcraft, and Railroad Tycoon II...throw in all the Civ games in there, as well.

Most points I ever got in a mission was 2,000...on a cold war recon mission. 98 knots, the entire time, weaving my way around SAM sites. White knuckle the entire time.

Anyway..I completed three 99 mission campaigns. I can land, perfectly, in my sleep. Intersect the runway when it is perfectly north, and keep the pixel that is the runway in the same spot on your screen. I always choose realistic landings.

That's awesome, wasn't Red Alert originally planned to be a WW2 themed RTS?

^yes, but on an alternate timeline. In the video, Albert Einstein travels back in time and eliminates a young Hitler to try to avoid WWII. It results in an unchecked Soviet invasion in 1946, which is when the game takes place, if memory serves.

I'd link to a video of Red Baron 3D with the Full Canvas Jacket super patch applied, but I can't even find one.  Closest I can come is BVH's Hell's Angels patch.
