    Spent all day last Saturday playing through an Alpha Centuari game.
    and as I said on the gaming thread still better than civ 5

    However the process of robo-insemination is far too complex for the human mind!

    Might and Magic VII, KOTOR, Jade Empire, sometimes Diablo II. Used to play Starcraft too until they made a campaign thing which imported the original campaign into SCII.
    Ask not the EldarGal a question, for she will give you three answers, all of which are puns and terrifying to know. Back off man, I'm a feminist. Ia! Ia! Gloppal Snode!

    is that M&M The Mandate of Heaven? I always forget which one that is (that one was fun)

    StarCraft for me is all about the UMS maps, not just the campaign

    also add in:

    Doom 2
    Cannon Fodder
    Air Duel (80 years of Air combat)

    I think wing commander 3 is available either on gog or origin for free (or was recently)

    As far as tiefighter goes, i also.found a way to get xwing vs tie fighter to install on a 64 bit windows 7 rig, i can pm you a link if you are interested

    For me, it's Final Liberation from 1992, I think. Best turn-based 40K game ever made, in my opinion.

    Pretty much the whole reason I made Exodus Wars: Fractured Empire is that I wanted to play a new game like that -- and no one's gonna make a game like that anymore -- too niche. So I made it.

    I'm just gonna leave this here...
