I loved Civ4 and when Civ5 came out, I was at the forefront of modding for it: BuildingResources, SaveUtils, ShareData, and ModList. I can't say I ever played the game itself, because it was so thoroughly flawed. But neither is my contempt directed at the game. The problem was, without doubt, Firaxis itself. When I heard there was going to be a 6, my first question was, "who's making it?" So of course I'm interested, but I'm currently cringing. Can anyone give me a compelling reason to think this iteration is going to be different? Can anyone make me believe that Firaxis has gotten its proverbial head out of its past?
