Do you OGame?

While doing more research via Google to see what is out there in terms of browser based space combat games, I stumbled across OGame. OGame is a massively multi player online 4X (eXplore, eXpand, eXploit and eXterminate) game that runs completely inside the browser. So I joined a game to see what it is about.

I am not sure that I "get it". The game play (at least in the beginning) is very very slow, and there isn't much to do except click on a link to start building something and then wait for the timer to tick down. But I could see that later in the game having a lot more going on as you end up with hundreds of planets and huge fleets and alliances and all that. So I'll keep playing it and see how it turns out.

One thing is for sure, they have TONS of people playing it. I hope that is a good omen for Fleet Combat Online...

Thanks, I will definitely check it out. I have been playing casually for about a week and I am amazed that I still don't have the technology to build a ship to explore other planets. Defintely seems to have a slower pace than other games I have played :)
