    +1 for Alpha Centauri...also like Star Wars: Empire at War even though it's less detailed...

    In retrospect, I should have played the turn based Civ games instead of the RTS games like Age of Kings.

    It was a big let down when I got online to play only to be rushed within 7 minutes of the game. Rush to Castle Age, erect a town center next to your enemy's closest gold pile. Garrison your villagers. Congrats, you just won the match.

    Pretty much. I find as I get older and less focused, it's a lot easier to play turn-based games while doing something else.

    Much cooler to have a text message relationship with a 24 year old virgin whom your wife thinks is your gay lover.

    I'm going to have to agree with you.

    If you liked Civ, did you ever play COLONIZATION?
    That one was awesome. Sadly, I only played the original Civ, then COLONIZATION, then I moved on to Starcraft and the Age of .... games and never really got into it again after that. I'm excited for SC2. I think a few years ago I bought Civ 3, and it was so different from what I was used to and what I liked that I never played it.


    Colonization was amazing, i actually tracked down a version that ran with windows a couple of years ago and still played it.

    I played Civ 1&2 religiously

    Then moved on to Command and Conquer as well as Starcraft, I don't play games as much these days though.

    i used to play board games when i was a kid. i never played computer games until a friend gave me a copy of Civ II. What an amazing time-suck. i'd disappear for like 4-5 hours. I tried the other spinoffs, alpha centauri, etc., but just wasn't my thing. i do want to try colonization, though. i bought civ3 and civ4 but while there were things i liked about civ4, it was just too different from the others for me to really adapt well (i'm old and change reluctantly). civ3 was probably my favorite version, but nowadays i only feel like playing a couple of times a year .

    Sorry to get of the Civ topic, but is anyone planning to play Starcraft 2?

    I've played the beta, and I wasn't impressed. But I've already purchased it, so I hope to change my mind come Tues.

    This game is awful. Such a disappointment. By any standards, much less Civ standards, it's a giant festering pile of crap. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
