I’ve sunk hundreds of hours into the Civilization series, from the first to the fifth. No doubt i’ll be doing the same when I can buy Civ 6 at a reasonable price.
Anyway, i’ve been trying to expand into other 4x games, I currently have my eye on games where I can build a galactic empire. Some games i’ve considered:
Endless Space 2 - I have put a few hours into this, having bought it and most of its DLC in a recent Steam sale. It was a bit of a gamble since I already own Endless Legend, a game I couldn’t really get into due to its clunky UI. I’ve enjoyed Endless Space 2 so far though, plan to play it some more.
Stellaris - This looks promising though its price (including the numerous DLC) puts me off
Galactic Civilizations III - it’s currently on sale on Steam which is tempting me. Is it different enough from Endless Space 2 to make it worthwhile for me though?
So, basically, what’s the best 4x space game? Any good ones which I haven’t mentioned would be good to hear about too.
