    My favorite aspect of the X series is the scale of the whole thing. The fact that you can go from one small station in the back end of an asteroid cluster, pick goods up, and warp to the far end of the galaxy and unload them is fantastic, it’s comparable to wandering around the whole world in an MMO, exploring every little facet and seeing all there is to see. The fact that combat can be fighters dogfighting around, or ship-to-ship with marine boarding parties taking of capital ships. The scale of the X universe/games is staggering in how finite the details can be in such a huge gameworld.

    Hi Folks! I think its totally amazing how the X-Games Simulate a whole Universe. You are free to Explorer that Universe the Way you want to – Be a Piraten or a trader and so on.. Thats what i like Most about the X-Games!:)

    I actually have not played any of the games in the X-series yet, so I can’t really say which my favorite aspect is. I definitely am interested in getting into the series, though, it seems like an interesting one. I’ve played plenty of other Space Sims before, and it’s about time I give these games a shot. So, getting lucky with this contest would be a pretty good incentive to get to it. =P I’m sure I would get plenty of enjoyment out of it.

    I’m a big fan of a great soundtrack, so if this game does have a really nice one, as cedekane mentioned above, then that may just be my favorite aspect out of them all.

    Thanks for the contest, and good luck to everyone else!

    What I like most about the X-series is the music. Every song feels hand crafted, be it a major themed planet or a familiar pirate skirmish. They did an amazing job of setting the mood and putting you right into the game.

    When I used to play X: Beyond the Frontier with my friends back in grade school, I was always blown away by its scope. I also thought it was great how you could walk out in your space suit and capture or purchase other ships because yours was usually too weak to do anything at the beginning. It’s generally a great series with a lot of unique ideas, and the X Universe is massive! I would love to win all of the games and reminisce while I play them!

    I liked you on FB as Josh Michaud. Thanks for the contest!
