Overview - Historical 4X Strategy Games 1990-1999

4X is a genre of strategy-based video and board games in which players control an empire and "EXplore, EXpand, EXploit, and EXterminate". The term was coined by Alan Emrich in his September 1993 preview of Master of Orion for Computer Gaming World. Since then, others have adopted the term to describe games of similar scope and design.
