Re: Post here when you beat a game. I mean it!

I finally beat X-Com: UFO Defense. This game is absolutely fantastic, especially towards the beginning. Your weapons are weak, your soldiers untrained, and the enemy unknown. Every battle feels important since you're almost guarenteed to suffer heavy losses. For at least forty hours I felt like I was barely hanging on to survival, even though I was constantly becoming stronger and gaining new abilities... which IMO is the ideal level of difficulty. Unfortunately the difficulty all but vanishes after you've researched some of the more powerful alien technologies, leading to a very unsatisfying conclusion. Still, even with the bad taste the last fifth left, this is one of the best games I've ever played.
