What is your ALL TIME favorite tactical or strategy game?

The reason that Sentinels of Eshall is being developed is because the lead developer (Clint, IE me) loves strategy and tactical games. I I have been playing them since the early 90's. I used to rush home from school hop on the IBM i486 and explore for magical nodes in Master of Magic, create a galaxy spanning empires in Master of Orion, or repeatedly click on a orc to make him say funny things in Warcraft I. However my ALL TIME favorite strategy / Tactical game is X-Com: UFO defense (or UFO : Enemy Unknown for my European friends). Now I'm not talking about the new games that have come out in the recent years, which I do love, I'm talking about the Microprose 1994 game. I still play it through once or twice a year. That game has inspired me to create strategy/tactical games and It will always hold a dear spot in my heart.

So what is your favorite strategy game new or old?

Gotta say Legend of Zelda: Link to the Past

I really liked X-Com Terror from the deep also. Spent many hours when I should have been studying in college playing that game!

TFTD was great, but the early, un-patched version was impossible to beat. The 2-part missions were really hard.

I remember the cruise ship missions being really tough. I did beat it so I guess I had the patched version? The moment where I did mind control on my first lobster man was so awesome :)
