@edgoodman: Tiberian Sun is the second out of five in the Tiberian series which is the first set of C&C games - Tiberian, Red Alert, and the most current Generals. Tiberian Sun was released in 1999 so whatever revenue they're giving up is pretty minor. Plus, it wasn't one of their better ones anyway.

On Amazon, it's a $10 game retail though MSRP is $70; used for as low as $0.01.

Anyway, how do they make money by giving it away - it's the drug dealer model or free samples. Get you a taste of what they have which gets you wanting to buy the other games.

Also, what's the deal here? Does it make you install some ad software? Does it make you play in a browser window? How are they making money like this?

Just so you know, the GDI firewall fencing can stop a Nod missile attack. Apparently, the fence goes all the way up the to the stratosphere.

Simply Just Install and run bootcamp on your mac.(core2duo or newer) It will run better than any pc of equivalent hardware and most likely be cheaper.

@coldtwelve: Doesn't look like it. Sounds like a reason to get a pc.

@psaux: Z was AWESOME!!! I loved that game! Too bad the sequel was so lackluster.

I believe they also make a number of the other old C&C games available in a similar manner. On top of that, the more recent ones often feature in the holiday sales on Steam. They're good games, even if they lack the polish of WarCraft 1&2 or Starcraft 1. (If you like those, you should also try to find a little game called Z.)
