You start by setting up your Galaxy, including the number of stars, difficulty and age and starting technology level. Then you pick your race. Each one has benefits and penalties, or you can create your own through a very nice system of picks. You must manage planet resources to build ships and facilities, improving producion, exploration of the galaxy is done via scouts and colony ships, which can establish new planets as part of the empire.You can offer pacts and alliances or you can simply declare war with them. Just because you signed a pact doesn't mean you can't break it , the computer knows that only one person can win, and if they must they with betray you as well.

Wing Commander -Privateer

Wing Commander: Privateer is an adventure space flight simulation computer game released by Origin Systems in 1993. Privateer and its storyline is part of the Wing Commander series.

You start out as an unnamed privateer who travels through the Gemini Sector, one of many sectors in the Wing Commander universe. Unlike previous game, you can choose to be a pirate, a merchant, a mercenary or any of the above in some combination. The player may follow the built-in plot but is free to adventure on his own, even after the plot has been completed.There are over 64 star systems you can explore, all adding to dozens of hours of sheer entertainment

There are four different ships you can own, plenty of different equipment to create your own customized ship, over a dozen different commodities you can trade between systems, special missions that will pay you even more than standard fees, and more. You will encounter friendly, neutral, and hostile traffic in your journey

If you haven’t played this classic, I strongly suggest heading over to the remake project website and giving it a shot (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED)

Zombies Ate My Neighbors

Zombies Ate My Neighbors is a 1993 run and gun video game for the Sega Mega Drive/Sega Genesis and SNES platforms. The game was originally developed, distributed, and produced by LucasArts as a comical tribute to both classic and horror films of the 1950s through the 1980s

The goal of the game is to collect all the neighbors on whatever map you're on while avoiding or killing the monsters.At least one neighbor must be saved from each level to progress to the next, more points are earned if all the people in a particular level are saved, but they can also be killed by the monsters.You get a multitude of different weapons ranging from squirt guns,bazookas, cutlery, plates, bubble guns, fire extinguishers, pandora's box, Popsicles, tomatoes, and several other items. You only get 3 lives with plenty hit points per life. Extra lives are rare, your health kits quickly deplete, and it is easy to take a beating if you run out of ammo or get stuck in a corner. Some of the enemies are really tough to kill, and should best be avoided if possible.

If you are a fan of horror games, or just a fan of the SNES you must play this game. I guarantee you a fun experience and a great time.

Gunstar Heroes

Gunstar Heroes is a side scrolling run and gun shooter like Contra or Metal Slug. You’re going to run, and shoot, a lot. Player has four weapons to choose from, and they can be combined in various pairs to create a total of 14 unique weapons. In addition to the weapons, the player can engage enemies in close quarters combat. It is possible to grab and toss enemies, perform sliding and jumping attacks and a long-range skid

The variety of action in the game makes it stand uniquely from all other platform action games.
You can pick from 4 levels, level in this game is huge and just when you think you've seen off the last boss ,another one appears.
In one scene you are on a mine cart going at insane speeds fighting enemies everywhere, going up on the ceiling or down on the ground. Next thing you know you're playing a board game with dices for different levels, and then the pretty difficult space battle in the ship. In two player mode, it's even more entertaining.

Gunstar Heroes is great game that is perfect for fans of the genre. With a friend, though, it's a real blast. The game will play just about the same with one or two players, so it's obviously a much quicker play with two of you manning the controls.I highly recommend this game to anyone that hasn't checked it out yet.

UFO-Enemy Unknown

I'll start with a game titled UFO Enemy Unknown, or perhaps better known by the name of X-Com . It is a strategy game where your job is to stop the alien invasion and threat to earth. You start off by building a base somewhere on the globe. You are initially given 3 crafts, 2 for intercepting airborn UFOs, and one with crew for getting rid of ground alien troops and survivors of shot-down UFOs. The base is also equipped with research, manufacture, radar, defense etc. facilities.

Each month you get fundings from every continent. The amount of money you get depends on how well you have controlled the alien threat on a certain continent. As the game progresses, you research new weapons, either from recovered aliens and their artefacts, or just normal earth weapons. The ground combat is turn-based, but nonetheless very dynamic and interesting.I suggest you get it now and play the game you won't regret
