Civilization Series(Multiplatform, 1995)

“The Civ series manages to be a mix of blowing crap up and building the cultural and social foundations of an ancient civilization. What’s not to love?”

X-COM: UFO DEFENSE (PC, 1994)

“A turn-based strategy game asking you to repel an alien invasion, but also a detailed management sim demanding you to master a Blaster Launcher and a spreadsheet.”

System Shock (PC, 1994)

“The first one in the Shock series turned me around on story in video games. It’s 2001: A Space Odyssey with lots of guns.”
