    Starcraft, Command & Conquer, and I played Jedi Knight until recently when I got bored with it.

    And on occasion I still play X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter (when I can find an opponent) and the original TIE Fighter.

    Currently nothing, but 90% of the games i enjoyed playing were either Fantasty or Sci-fi.

    For most part I thnk early 90's sci fi games were a lot better.
    i.e. Wing Commander: 1, 2 & privateer. Master of Orion 1 & 2, Star Control 1 & 2.

    If you someone who can look past the crappy graphics of older games. You should really try playing Star Control 2. It is by far the best Science Fiction game ever. Story rules, and the game play is actually quite fun.

    We should get an OT Bridge Commander crew going.

    That game owned but I could never find people to play multi with.

    Birth of the Federation owned too, easily my favorite 4x space game next to MOO2

    Half-Life
    Half-Life 2
    Unreal Tournament series
    System Shock 2
    Star Wars Galaxies
    Star Wars KOTOR
    Starcraft
    Anarchy Online
    Xenogears
    Star Ocean: Second Story
    Final Fantasy 7 and 8 (the main two FF games that fit more into sci-fi than fantasy)

    quake 4 is being done by raven, so was elite forces. from what i've read, quake 4 will be vaguely reminiscent of elite forces.

    It's okay. As a fan you'll probably be a little more forgiving than the average fan. You can pick up a used Battlecry for PS2 or Xbox really cheap.

    I noticed that there's a new(er) game out called Robotech: Invasion. Looks like it takes place during the Invid era, so you get Cyclones instead of Veratechs (sp?).

    Eh, I never really considered D3 sci-fi. Always just considered it a nice kill fest.
