Sid Meier's Civilization IV

Turned based strategy. Was a bit tiresome to play and not that fun.

Sid Meier's Civilization Revolution

Rule the world on Nintendo DS. Works but not much more. The thing that really drives you insane is the advisor?s that pop-up once each turn and say the same thing and the fact that each city that has nothing to build also pop-up each turn. So even if you do not wish to build anything you still have to click back once for each city in the known world.

Sid Meier's Civilization V

Build cities, build units and then take over the world.

XCOM 2

The first XCOM is better as all the timers annoy me in this one. There seems to be clocks counting down or up everywhere. I enjoy building my base and sneaking around shooting the aliens in the face. It's hard when there is always a timer that makes it a rush. The War of the Chosen expansion has a mod called Avatar Be Gone that removes the worst timer and it is also possible to lengthen some of the timers in the expansion. Without the mod I would not have played this game at all.

XCOM: Enemy Unknown

Great game that really capture the feel of the old 1994 game so i recommended this to anyone that liked the old ones. There is also a expansion called XCOM: Enemy Within. It adds some new elements such as the MEC trooper and a new human enemy faction to the game. The optimal mix for me was two MECís, two genetic soldiers and two human soldiers on each mission. Play it. Play it Now.
