It's easy, the X series is the best 4X (explore, expand, exploit, and exterminate) games available.
You have to know, this isn't a casual game, It's more a simulation. Some people consider you need to play almost 100h to begin understanding how the game really works. You need to manage ship, fleets, diplomacy and all those aspects take some time to be handled correctly. If this is the kind of things you're into, this pack is a great value.
X2 and X3 are really beautiful and probably endless. I regret the fact that cockpits have been removed from X3 but still the game is deep and really interesting. Flying your sheep in space is a really enjoyable experience and the fight are really dynamic even though they are tough if you play as a beginner. Even if fights are fun, you can chose to focus on trading which is a HUGE aspect of the series. You can create a real corporation by creating fleets, buying station or even factories in order to earn your living.
This game is a harcore sim version of freelancer in my opinion. So if you're into that kind of game, this is probably the best game of the genre available on the market. I trully worth it price as it is endless, beautiful and got a very deep game mechanics !
