46. X-COM: UFO Defense (Computer)
X-COM is a game I am terrible at. I don’t last very long in
this game, but I love it to pieces anyway. If you like strategy games in any
shape or form, chances are you have X-COM to thank. It’s a turn based game
where you have to build up your forces and save the Earth from aliens. It
sounds incredibly basic, but there’s a reason why IGN said this is the best
computer game of all time. X-COM is just addicting, I can’t really describe it,
but there’s just so many different options you can use to fight the UFO horde
that it never gets old. The best part of the game is leveling up your soldiers
and becoming attached to them… which makes it all the more heart wrenching when
they die in battle and don’t come back. This game would have scored much higher
if I were not so bad at it.
