They are addictive. One finishes one tasks and the just games throw more tasks to do. Constant tension and stimulation.

X-Com is evil. I'm considering deleting it from my HDD.

No trouble here. I'm not addicted. I can stop any time I want.

Any time at all.

So, I'm not alone when it comes to getting addicted to X-Com?

I'm building a new computer (Actually just using old parts) just so I can play my original copies and so I can play Master or Orion 2 as well. So yeah I'm still addicted after not playing it for about 3 years.

From what I've seen, the first two games aren't as bad as X-Com3 as they have much lesser density of events.

I decided to try limiting my time spent on X-Com3 to 30 minutes a day. Today, I managed to do only one tactical mission and re-equip my agents and send them to alien alert. I have lost 4 agents to hyperworms. 3 got killed in one turn :blink: .

I'm not sure if the game is playable this way. I don't feel satisfied, I feel that I want to do more.

Sounds like part of a PSA ;) Could you imagine what an xcom PSA would be like? "Is your loved one afraid of turning a corner for fear of being zombif... wait what? this is stupid. I'm not reading this. EWW this next line is just GROSS..." "CUT!"
