    So can you help a brother out? I'm not much or a strategy gamer, don't have the attention span, so 4X games are out unless you think one of these is such a standout that I should give it a look. I like games where you wander the universe and meet alien cultures and explore worlds, and I guess, engage in combat on occasion. So Starflight and StarCon are my shining examples here. Any advice?

    Hmmm … I guess as far as you have to go to find a great game. I'm not really hung up on the tech, as long as it's got a great universe to explore and cool stuff to find. I'm desperate for something like that, they just don't make those kind of games anymore.

      Well, if I can take you back a bit, the games that, in my mind, really captured the feeling of exploration well (besides SF and SC2) are:

      Protostar (basically Starflight 3)

      Nomad

      Millennia: Altered Destinies

      Frontier: Elite II

      Iron Seed

      Runners up include

      Future Magic I: Sentinel Worlds

      Hard Nova

      Star Command

      Hope that helps! :)
