    When it comes to 'historical' computer games, I must confess my undieing love for Civilizations, in fact I have it for my iPhone, and it continues to be one of my favorite guilty pleasure to fill the empty minutes.

    I liked Civ 5 more than civ 4 just because it made war a viable option by getting rid of unit stacking.

    Hmm I have heard that. Maybe I'll give it a try one of these days. I'm not much of a warmonger, but the unit stacking in Civ IV gets pretty ridiculousness. You play Civ Revolutions much? How does it stack up? Does it manage to maintain much of the depth of the PC games?

    Civilization is brilliant but far far too addictive. I have spent whole days wasted on this it takes so long to play. It really is the thing to have if you were in solitary confinement for 6 months!

    I loved them before I had kids. Now I don't have time to play ever. Besides I could never win, even on the easiest setting. I also miss Age of Empires; I guess I am a pre-history/classic civilisation war game fan.

    I love Civ 5 too. I'm a fan of pretty much all of them, but I think 5 was a great improvement to the series, doubly so when Gods and Kings was released. Warfare is definitely easier..I tend to be Science / Culture, but when Boudicca was added in G&K I had to go war. Doubly so when my first opponent was Caesar ….

    Civilization is one of my favorites as well. Civ5 was great, but I think CivIV is my favorite.

    I enjoyed IV very much, including it's add-ons. It's a close second. I am BEYOND pleased to hear that they are releasing a new expansion for V, with better international trade and cultural win options.

    I loved, loved, loved CIV. I played it all the time when I was a preteen and the funny thing is  I usually played as the purple English. That's how I learned all the names of the major city in Great Britain. There are few things more enjoyable then exploring/reviling the map and finding that perfect city site.

    I, too, enjoy a good game of Civilization. I'm in the middle of a game of Civ 5 with a friend at the moment. I'm busy invading the two remaining civilizations of Carthage and Byzantium while my friend's off conquering the remaining city states. I'm still a novice, but it's all good fun.I recall reading somewhere that Civilization 5 differs from its predecessors in a bunch of ways. Sure, there's the further-simplified, more accessible interface and the change from squares of territory to hexagons of territory, but I found that it was rather interesting that the AI has, apparently, changed how it behaves. Again, I don't remember where I read this, but apparently in Civ 5, the AI has gone from trying to roleplay the civilizations they represent to acting more like a competing player trying to win.

    God, I LOVE Civ! About the only game I still play at all. Pleased to see others with a shared love of Civ and BHP  :)In fact, Civ is responsible for me ponying up the cash to become a member - was working through 'back issues', and hearing Jamie namecheck Civ4 was my deciding factor!
