Loved 1-3, it went downhill afterwards though. At least there is still Paradox left.

Civ 3, 4 and 5 have been amazing in their own rights. I would argue Civ 4 and 5 were dependant on the expansions, but still were excellent. I had Civ 2 but I was a bit on the young side to properly understand it back then.

Civ VI is shaping up superbly. I'll get it when the price isn't so absurd in the UK, although buying it from one of the other sites doing it for a more reasonable price might be what I do nearer the time.

Can't said i am surprised, if there is one thing i hate about the series is how there is no "playing just a little civ", you fire up that game, you sign a 4 hours minimum engagement.

They are all great. I started playing them on Amiga. I can't believe there isn't any real competitors to a whole genre, 4x.

Only played 5 but absolutely love it.

Well deserved and can't wait to get my hands on 6

And of course, this is well deserved. To the next 35 Million:

I'm honestly surprised this number isn't higher considering how popular this franchise is and how often IV and V go on sale on Steam. But well-deserved!

1-4 are all good with 2 being my favorite. V is an insult to the series and there is nothing VI can do to win me back.
They're all great. 4 is my favorite. 5 has problems that even two strong expansions could not entirely overcome, but it's still a fun game.

Civ 6 is going to be good too. I am a little worried that they're building on 5's foundations, but the new civics system looks quite promising.

I hope they DO build on V's foundations. That game is perfect. The way the other games sound (1-4), they were probably too complicated for no reason.

Glad VI seems to be a nice follow up to V. As it should be. Get rid of the trash (fat) and just leave the goodstuff.
