Exhibit: Command and Conquer: Tiberian Sun
I had a beautiful new base, freshly paved and the troops were lining up on the parade ground. I like parades!
I'd also planned a formation of shiny new vehicles to drive past, then later a nice afternoon tea and picnic (not on the Tiberium fields!).
Next thing I hear "Missile Launch detected". Oh botheration, talk about raining on a parade!
The missile impact wiped out a platoon then a horrible cloud of green gas, fairly persistent, drifed slowly outwards from the point of impact over the next few minutes.
Ok, no more parades!
