I’ve no doubt left out a number that I’ve played, but the most memorable are…

  • Does Zaxxon count? :p
  • Elite C64 (very briefly – didn’t quite have the patience then)
  • Frontier Elite – Amiga 500 and 1200 (ECS and AGA versions)
  • K240 – Amiga
  • Dune 2000 – Amiga (Am I drawing a long bow here?)
  • Space Quest I – IV Amiga and PC
  • Homeworld – PC
  • Pax Imperia – PC (loved the customisation of ships on these)
  • One or two isometric Elite “clones” on Mac (G5) – can’t remember what they were called, but they had cool storylines, different depending which path you took
  • Galactic Civilisations II – PC
  • Warhammer 40K offline RTS (three or four stackable titles)
  • Sins of a Solar Empire (played a couple of versions of this)
  • X2 – The Threat (loved being able to simultaneously run multiple ships + the in-game story)
  • Endless Space – (well worth a look)

While we’re at it, I’ll slip in a couple of tabletop games:

  • Warhammer 40K (Praeteorian XXIV + Armour [both Imperial Guard], Space Marines)
  • Warhammer Battlefleet Gothic (The only time I choose Chaos – the capital ships look like Pythons and Anacondas)

Oi! That's Baron von Schnellenstein to you, mate. No, it doesn't matter that I'm an Imperial Prince!
