looks pretty cool. I've never had the time to be able to really explore a civ game. mostly I buy them after they've been out for awhile and are cheap and get maybe 10 hours out of them.

I loved Civ 2/3/4, just could not get into 5 at all. I know they fixed a lot of the issues with the later xpacs for it, but it never grabbed me in the way even the base version of 3 or 4 did.

yeah, civ 5 base was boring, but the DLCs did not just fix things, they added systems that made it fun and interesting. civ 6 will include all of them off the bat so no waiting around. gonna own imo

iirc there were a whole bunch of systems that were in civ 4 that they took out for no apparent reason. I have to admit I'm slightly addicted to civ revolutions on my phone, although I still wish they'd just done a straight civ2 port.

It actually looks fun to play even without any opponents.

I've played every incarnation of Civ since it came out, and now Civ V is one of the few games we still play as a family on PC. Skyrim and GTA V being the others though both the latter are better on console IMO.

I'll be shelling out the $70 or whatever for Civ VI, though knowing Firaxis there will be game balance issues related to whatever new thing they throw in the game, at least initially.

I hope the AI is improved.
