Seriously, there are very few games that I can unequivocally point to and say: that's one of my favorite games of all time. When Masters of Orion 2 came out, it only got better.
Unfortunately, while 4X strategy games have always been a personal favorite genre of mine, I'd say that new releases in the genre are few and far between. Even then, when a new one does come out there's really no guarentee its going to be any good. For about every great 4X out there, I can probably find at least another one that's terrible."
