XCOM: Enemy Unknown and XCOM: Enemy Within managed to recapture the gaming community by offering something that’s been missing, a proper turn-based action strategy game that rekindles the old XCOM franchise. It’s hard to believe that such a game could have this much impact in a world dominated by shooters and remakes, but it happened.
The fact that XCOM was a success is due to the fact that many of the people who were enjoying these games a couple of decades ago are still playing the game today, and they really want a sequel. XCOM 2 seems to fit the bill, and Firaxis is trying quite hard to top what they have achieved already.
