Civ3, the game where players spend more time on fan's website than playing.
Well thank you Matt, I'm flattered you even remember me! I realized I was spending more time here at CFC than actually playing the game, so I gave up Civ for a while and started playing The Sims. Man, I thought Civ3 was boring at times, but The Sims takes the cake for being utterly pointless (and their web forum is crap compared to CFC). So here I am again.
Meanwhile, some other possible wordage for your Civ III box;
Sid Meier's* Civilization III:
- The beta version of Civ IV. We only call it Civ III because that's the number of patches it took to get it anywhere near right -
Minimum: 2GHz Pentium 4 with 512Mb RAM and 40GB hard drive.
Recommended: 25GHz Pentium 7, 4096Mb RAM, 180GB hard drive plus Empire Earth fully installed so you have something to do in between turns.
*Sid Meier content completely fictional and only listed for marketing purposes. Resemblance to any persons called Sid Meier whether living or dead is, like, purely coincidental.

Civilization 3: Where even though you may be a civilized democracy, you still have the joys of razing enemy cities, conquering entire nations and keeping their lands, performing ethnic cleansing operations, poisoning civilian water supplys, and killing primative peoples for money.
from the official website:
"The most detailed and beautiful art, animations and sound ever found in the genre."
"Improved combat options provide finer levels of control for enhanced war-making capabilities. "
EDIT: 'nuff said.
Murewa, this is not a *****ing thread. If you want to whine like Zouave, then do it outside this *HUMOR* thread.
If you take the genre to be the "Civilizations" genre, it'S true, though.
And if you compare Civ III to Civ II, it *IS* true that the new combat options provide a finer level of control (bombardment et al).
Civ III, the game can't love if you played Civ II...Master Zouave said so!
Civ III, come ***** with us!
Civ III, Not a chess game, a cheat game.
Civ III - Where your Galleys are safe from enemy bombers!
