4X games is a sub-genre of strategy video games. In 4X games, players are given control over an empire and they have to do 4 things to achieve victory: eXplore, eXpand, eXploit, and eXterminate.
The term was created by Alan Emrich during Master of Orion release in 1993, and since then, other developers and gamers have used it to describe games of similar design.
4X video games are renowned for their deep, complex gameplay. Emphasis is placed upon economic and technological development, as well as a range of non-military routes to supremacy. 4X games can take a long time to complete since the amount of micromanagement needed to sustain an empire increases as the empire grows.
4X games can be either turn-based or real-time titles. The most renowned 4X franchises of all time are Civilization, Master of Orion, and Rome: Total War.
Games Republic. The best 4X games for gaming fanatics all around the world. Top titles for the lowest prices.Mortal Kombat is a legendary video game franchise. Nobody can deny that! Created and developed by Midway in 1992, the series quickly amassed a very big and loyal fanbase. Few people know this, but the first game was created because a different one (featuring Jean-Claude Van Damme) was canceled. Instead, Midway developed a fantasy-horror fighting game and the Mortal Kombat brand was born. The original game has spawned many sequels and has spun a massive media franchise. Currently, it consists of several action-adventure games, movies, and TV series (both live-action and animated). Other spin-offs include comic book series, a card game and even a distinct line of toys.
Mortal Kombat is currently one of the most successful fighting franchises in the history of video games (along with Street Fighter and Tekken) as well as one of the highest-grossing media franchises of all time.
It goes without saying that Mortal Kombat has a reputation for high levels of gore and violence. The finishing moves (called Fatalities) were actually one of the main reasons behind the creation of ESRB video game rating system.
