Miscellaneous Video Games Thread

Postby BayernLove » Tue Jun 04, 2013 5:39 pm

So I noticed we have a Football Video games/online games thread, but none for any other video games, thus many non-football video game posts are either put on the general chat thread, the Football video game thread, or nowhere at all.
This thread shall fix that, hopefully.

So anyway, I'm currently deliberating, I'm thinking of getting Sid Meier's Civilisation. Going to get Either IV or V, which one do you prefer and why, give a short introduction and explanation on each one. Many thanks.

Regarding Civilisation I had one a very long time ago (I think it was II). The game is of course simple and primitive because it's so old now, but I still enjoy playing it occassionally. I would imagine IV and V are much better.

I kinda liked III most (apart from the horrible waste and corruption features), most people like II most. IV is always considered a great successor.

Civilization V is much more advanced than IV
Only downside is that they have removed religion which was an essential part of all civilizations making the overall experience a bit weaker

The simple fact that you can't stack units is already a no sell with Civ V.

That's why you just need to surrender yourself to my orders - get Civ 4 because it's the most accessible, most streamlined, yet sufficiently advanced and multi-faceted.

My first Civilization game was I (yes, the first one) in the Amiga I had in early 90's.
Oh, those times! Those great nights I have spent playing this wonderful game :)

I must admit though that I stopped following it at IV, mostly cause my primary OS now is Linux (where I play freeciv http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freeciv) , so I don't know much about V, but from the things you mentioned, it doesn't sound good ...
