I have only played two of the games listed, enemy unknown, and tftd. I haven't played very much of tftd, but I doubt I will even finish it due to I hate its graphics and such.

Xcom 1 for me.  :blush:

TFTD for me, only played the X-COM series though. Only makes it in by a few minor improvements on UFO, opening doors without walking through and multi level levels

Gotta give my vote to the Silent Storm series. I love the turnbased game mode, I love the physics engine and I love the variety of weapons and skills you can assign to your troopers. However, my vote would have gone to UFO: Enemy Unknown if it hadn't been for the entire PSI aspect of the game. I hate having my men brainwashed by sectoids they can't even see, it's more frustrating than fun to me.

Where's Jagged Alliance on that list? It's probably the best squad-based game in history.

  Somehow, the guys at this forum don't seem too keen on JA series, though I think Silent Storm series are more like JA series than X-COM or UFO series.
  Maybe it's because there's already Bear's Forum for JA anyway.

Well I didn't put it on that list as I've never played it to be honest ;) I'm just going to crawl back under my rock now as the exasperated responses come flooding in ;)
May your terror missions always be infested with Chrysalids.

I'm not revising my vote here as it still stands at Enemy Unknown, but now that I have played the other games I can finally make that judgment final. :)

I'd like to mention though that if there was a way to combine X-COM's atmosphere, setting and music with Silent Storm's destructible environment, incredible array of weapons and role specialization plus UFO: Aftermath's training system and it's ufopaedia (urm, Glossary) entries, we'd have an unbeatable game. I can dream, can't I?  :P

Well, when StrategyCore gets large enough, we'll just buy Nival, ALTAR and the team that created the X-COM games and get it done. Simple :P

The people who made UFO: AM certainly know how to create an eerie atmosphere :P
