Rank the Civilization games?:

It's weird. Been playing Civ since the big golden edition of Civ II. III was probably the one I spent the most time with. IV was a major improvement aside from eating my processing power. I can't get into V at all, seems just alien to me for some reason, barely made it to the feudal age. Main thing is, drawing a blank on which features came/went fom which game. Were religions in III or IV? Was spying removed in IV or V?

I may be burned out on the basic Civ experience. Maybe we need an Alpha Centauri II more than Civ VI. Or maybe tackle fantasy. I won't see we need to revert to an older model then V, but something with it doesn't sit well with me.

Religion was introduced in IV. And there is a fantasy version of Civ. Kind of.
A fistful of me.

Master of Magic is tragically ancient. Age of Wonders never really got the love it deserved. Still, a Civ game with a fantastic setting may be interesting, especially in Firaxis' hands.

Though, I guess we can be thankful that Civ is still turn based.

Your argument is invalid
Religion was added I think in IV, taken out of V, then put back in Gn K. Same deal with spying, I think.

Outta curiosity, did you try V again when Gn K came out?

Y'know, it feels like - beyond realism - the main reason that Religion was introduced in IV was so that the player would be guaranteed to have at least one war / mortal enemy during their playthrough.

I haven't. Already spent $20 on a game I don't play so I was reluctant to do so.

Actually, thinking about it, I am really getting my knowledge of the series confused. I should probably hit V again and this time act like I'm a newb and relearn everything.

Of course, it doesn't help that it refuses to run on Direct X 11 unlike my other games.

Do pick up Gods and Kings. It really fixes most of the problems Civ V has.

Some guy.
Considering how few I've played, this should be easy.

1. Civ 5 (With Gods and Kings).

2. Civ 4.

3. Civ 5 (Base).

Dunno if I'll attempt the expansion. Last patch seemed to add a ton of common bugs including the Direct X 11 issue and bombardment causing crashes.

I've played all of the mainline Civ games up through 4, Colonization, Alpha Centauri, and both CTP games. 4X games have always been something of a passion of mine.

[up] x6: Espionage has always been a little finicky in the series anyway. The system the first two used was flat-out broken, and it was originally taken out of the fourth game entirely before it was put back in in one of the expansions.

I strongly recommend getting Gn K if you wanna try Ci V. It's just a superior experience.

Eh, I've already stated my case earlier in the thread. A year and a half to consider it hasn't really changed my opinion all that much.

Answering the latest nuked post:

All he did was asking you for valid arguments. Now all his comments are delated, because... well, because they are. This says all about this site.

The removal of the posts might have something to do with the fact that this was the second known handle of a ban evader. The original handle is the one whose post I'm quoting (and answering here.)
Quod gratis asseritur, gratis negatur.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
