I have been a Civ fan since the first installment of the series came out in the early 90's. Up until Civ 5, I have loved every release as each grew upon each other, building upon each other, fueling the fire for my addiction to the Civ game. Then... When Civ 5 was released, I played... and waited... and waited... and shortly discovered the true direction that Civ was heading. Into a Farmville DLC type of game. Let me cut to the chase. I'm now almost 30 years old, and the more I think about it, the more I'm greatfull that Civ 5 did not deliver as it should have. Because now I can finally move on with my life to more important things that someone my age should do, and stop sitting on my ass in front of a computer for the next 5 years until Civ 6 is released. Civ 5 has been my blessing in disguise.
