Has any one played those X games? Their boards are completely dead, was wondering what the games were like, and if they were any good.
If you don't like the smell of pigfarts, stay out of the pigpen.

Yes, the games are great, if you like space sims. They have a fairly steep learning curve, but once you get used to the controls, HUD, and navigating your way around and stuff, they become a lot of fun. You can play it pretty much however you want - there *is* a plot to follow in each game, but it's kind enough to not push you - and you can play and even forget the plot is there. It's one of those "play how you want" games. You can be a merchant and build a gigantic trade empire, create a manufacturing empire (including building mining stations all the way up to whatever product you're producing), be a pirate, build an unstoppable military fleet... It's a wide-open game series.

Best ones are Terran Conflict and Albion Prelude, so you'd be better off beating the average or $6 or whatever they're doing now.
