    Of course you can. It's not EA, after all.

    Why? Well - let me answer your question with a question of my own: Do you feel I'd need to actually try, say, 3 out of 5 of the latest EA titles to realise they're villains?

    I consider information gathering a core human skill, and I read a lot. You have no idea how many people hate Paradox - or how much they hate them - unless you read as many user reviews as I do.

    Sure .. there are many positive ones too. But then you look at what it is they publish, and a pattern emerges: Some people are ok with sinking 150-200 of your currency of choice into what basically just amounts to 'a strategy game', and some aren't. I'm of the latter conviction.

If you like 4X games and beautiful aesthetic design, you cannot go wrong with Endless Space. The first game doesn't run very well on modern systems, and has been superseeded by its second iteration, so you should just grab ES2 instead. Endless Legends is a Civ-like spinoff that takes place on a planet instead, and has a unique take on combat. (YMMV on whether or not its actually engaging).

    I've considered the Endless game many, many times. I think the only reason I never bought one is that the title itself seems unimaginative to me =)

    Endless Legend is really good for a more traditional civ-style 4x. I donít think itís perfect, but the base of having the map divided into provinces which can only fit one city was a great idea that serves to limit city spread while making the early land grab still very important. The factions have different enough mechanics to make them interesting as well, which is a nice plus.
