I kind of liked Freelancer. Sure it wasn't what Chris Roberts fully envisioned because he left right after Microsoft acquired his company and they dumbed the game down considerably, but I don't think his original vision could have been accomplished in the time of 600Mhz PCs. But when I think of his original vision for that game I get very giddy over what he could do now if he were just left to his own devices and allowed to explore everything that PC gaming is capable of today much the way he did back with Strike Commander (and as a side note - damn I'm old).
