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

(I actually finished a game-)

XCom Enemy Unknown-

the most fun and involving turn based strategy game I've played in- I don't know- maybe ever. I was really stoked to see my best recruit save the world at the end. In general I felt pretty attached to my squad of regulars.

I hope XCom gains popularity with younger gamers, and reinvigorates interest in the basic elements of game design.

Complaints? I wouldn't have minded a few more maps. And I think a doublesized squad of 6 active and 6 backup agents in a doublesized map would have been a little more appropriate for the final showdown.

Things I learned/used to my advantage that weren't specified by the rules? Putting an agent in plain sight to draw enemy fire away from a wounded squad member.
