Science fiction is not fantasy, I'm sorry you need to be told this.

Ok so X-Com is Science Fiction you say? Lets just look up the word "Fiction" then.

fiction[ fik-shuhn ]

noun

1. the class of literature comprising works of imaginative narration, especially in prose form.

2. works of this class, as novels or short stories: detective fiction.

3. something feigned, invented, or imagined; a made-up story: We've all heard the fiction of her being in delicate health.

Therefore Sci-Fi is Fantasy.

fantasy - imagination, especially when extravagant and unrestrained.

Science Fiction includes the word SCIENCE and FICTION. Which implies fiction that has restrictions.

Nevermind how standardized the words have become to refer to two obviously very different types of universe.

Did we really need to do this?

Yea well the amount of people that don't realize that science fiction is a type of fantasy makes me sad.

Just because you throw in the word "science" and it has "restrictions" doesn't mean it isn't a type of fantasy.

Physically hurts to understand this level of ignorance.
