    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!

    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.

    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!

    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!:)

    Hi! I can’t find the date when the win­ners are cho­sen.. Does any­body know when we get the info whether we won or not? 🙂

    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.
