I was wondering, over the past few months spent on this forums, I've realised how high our expectactions are of Civ as a game, not just Civ 5, but just Civ. We want big features that give so much depth to the game, from reasons to declare war, complicated features like colonization, vassalage etc. But then, is that was Civ was ever about? From what I can remember, Civ isn't a simulation, it's a strategy board game. Isn't? So.. are we expecting too much and being disappointed because what we want is not what Civ is?
