We’re only on our third mission when we realise we’re in trouble. Our dogged insistence on relying on the tactics that served us so well in 2012’s XCOM: Enemy Unknown / Enemy Within has led us to this place, and our beleaguered resistance fighters are unlikely to get out of this one alive. Farewell, brave pawns. Your time was all too brief.

We all need to slow down a little. Relax. Take time out of our hectic schedules to ponder our decisions, rather than plunging headlong without pause for thought. Turn based games allow us to sit back and take a breath, consider all the options before making a decision.
