Isn't MOO older than Xcom?

Elite might be fun, but it sure wasn't my cup of tea. Free will? Sure. :zzzzz:

MoM never been a huge hit for me... Quite a Civ clone IMHO, only difference is the Fantasy theme.

Master of Orion: 1993

X-Com: 1994

So not so big difference (for me they are from the same era).

Elite was top of the simulation / resource menagement in 80's.

That game was huge and very interesting.

This is only my opinion.
Total annihilation is another one of my favorites...

i like moo cuz it brings me back to my younger years when i was first experianceing pc gaming.

ive beat moo at least 50 times, but it still is loads of fun to play. that says something...

Everyones personal opinion aside, Master of Orion is one of the defining PC games in history. It spawned in entire strategy format (although perhaps short lived).

I prefer Ascendancy

I know that MOO came first but Ascendancy took the best ideas form MOO and added to them.

Well... If you've read other threads you know that I would not give Ascandency more than 3...

this is about oldies, and the great things about old games is that the creators of said games were on the frontier so to speak, making games that no on else had even thought of. nowadays a new game is based on an older gaem wich is based on an even older game. this is why master of orion is my favorite, its not only a fun game, but its a legend among TBS games, adn in my opinion, one of the best strategy games of all time. The replay value alone deserves much recognition...

sorry about bad spelling, i broke a finger
