Also I should note that this is the 4X games thread for games that are not Civ.

I had to look up "4X", I've never heard this term related to this genre.

Is Northgard a 4x game? That was probably the last one I tried, with a friend online, but found it a bit lacking in the long term. It also had no save facility which was annoying.

I swore off these games after wasting way too much time on Civ 2 and Civ 3.

haven't played stellaris cuz find the volume of dlc bewildering/dispiriting. usually frustrated by space 4x, which are never as terrifyingly huge as i want them to be: galciv feels flat and banal; the sins of a solar empire interface keeps repelling me. but i can still play good ol master of orion 2 (not v deep but always a joy) and (less defensibly) space empires 4, a game that looks and plays like windows 3.1 but has everything, each individual ugly element of which will require your obsessive attention every turn.
