I haven't seen any threads on Civilization, and was wondering if anyone here likes the game series? I've put over 300+ hours into Civ 5, but i'm not very good at it. I enjoy it a lot however :). I'm really excited for Civ 6! :D

I enjoy Civilization, but it's not quite what I've been looking for in my games lately. I do have quite a bit of experience with it, though.

Civ 5 was a lot of fun, and with the expansions is likely the best in the series and a very solid game. Although some civs were really under-powered compared to others because their ability or unique buildings or units are just inferior to others, it's mostly fine. Venice, for instance, although being weaker because of it's restrictions, introduces a completely new gameplay mechanic that's actually fun, so I don't mind that. The social policy trees were similar until the last update, I think, where they balanced out tradition and liberty so that it's a harder choice between the two.

I wouldn't call myself a great player, although I think I'm good. I can reliably win on King difficulty (5 of 8) and if I focus and play well, I can definitely win on Emperor a majority of the time.

I have mixed feelings about Civ 6 right now. I'm really unsure if I want to get it or not. I'd want to see a finished product before committing.

I think CIv 6 will basically be civ 5, but with an added you'll see your cities actually expand by taking more tiles up.
I plan on buying it day 1, but that's only because I love strategy games like ROTK or Civilization :)

I remember picking up the game Endless Legend, as they had a similar mechanic. As the population in your cities grew (in the same manner as Civ, essentially), you could spend time to build a "district" that took up a tile and gave whatever bonuses it had. If a district bordered other districts in some kind of manner (maybe 3 other of its level; I forget), it would level up and give more bonuses.

I honestly felt, at the time, Endless Legend was just a superior version of Civilization. Aside from the notable differences of it being placed in a fantasy world, with fantasy races, and tech only encompassing the early-high middle ages, it has a different feel overall. But it included many other features I thought were strict improvements on Civ. But at the same time, it lacked mechanics like religion, so Civ still had an advantage in some respects.

I have played a few Civ games but rarely for long, I do have fond memories of one on the PS1 with amusing advisers
“You, are a rebellious son who abandoned his father. You are a cruel brigand who murdered his lord. How can Heaven and Earth put up with you for long? And unless you die soon, how can you face the sight of men?”

Unless I specifically say otherwise, assume I am talking about historical Three Kingdoms, and not the novel.
