Galactic Civilizations 3 or Planetfall: Age of Wonder?

Posted on Monday, June 7, 2021

I'm looking for a sci-fi 4X game after burning out on Civ V and VI. Galatic Civilization 3 and Age of Wonder Planetfall were two games that captured my attention.

I haven't delved too further into the 4X genre outside of the Civ series, so I don't have high hopes, though I would love the game to be less complicated than Civ.

Which did you enjoy better and why, if you've played both? I don't have time to play both anymore, so I'll have to choose one.
