An Ode to XCOM: Enemy Unknown

Loss. We’ve all got to face it. The horrid realisation that what used to be is no longer with you anymore. The first is always one of the hardest. Be it your dog, grandparent, friend or long-lost relative, the first hits hard, and hits well. XCOM: Enemy Unknown teaches you about loss, among a chalky blackboard of other lessons: tactics, patience, camaraderie, honour, victory, management, sacrifice, pain and frustration. But mostly loss, because you never know what you had until it’s gone.

[Oliver Banham, Thunderbolt] (PC, PS3, Xbox 360, XCOM: Enemy Unknown)

And that all could have been avoided by a little something called save and reload. Not sayin, just sayin.
