Best game ever made?
Is the original X-COM, in your opinion, the best game that was ever made? Yay or Nay?

Well considering the game is unplayable without the booklet I'd consider it very unfun for me at this time.

Learning is part of the fun. Also: Google :\

No I'm sorry but "brute forcing" or "trial and error" is not fun when learning to play a game it's frustrating. Or at least to me it is.

As for best ever made I'll say nay, it's really damn good though and without a doubt a classic.

Well, once you understand the main mechanics of the game, learning the rest of it is pretty fun.

It's my favorite game of all time, and on many top lists. It is truely great.

OK...Great atmosphere.
Great Game play, easy to learn.
Every soldiers stats actually mean something!
Aliens are always a challenge.
Brilliant story.

It is easily the best game ever made. Its a shame they watered down the remake.

Watered down the remake? Not necessarily, they really just skimmed off the unnecessary complications, in my honest opinion.

from 14 soldiers to 6
No base defences
the same old fight each time, (alien spot you move into cover, you shoot they shoot...)

NO control over direction of your forces other than building satelites. its too easy
