With NASA's recent discovery of over 700 new planets, there has been increased speculation in the media regarding the possibility of life existing elsewhere in the universe.

Video games have speculated about alien worlds for decades, but they're largely portrayed as hostile worlds for humans to investigate, escape from, or destroy.
