Methinks you are straying off topic a wee bit but I'll indulge you since you are polite and respectful. Civilization 5 is basically Starcraft Civ. You've got 1UPT in both games and the idea is to swarm the opposition with military units. You've got paranoid, xenophobic opponents who know literally nothing about diplomacy. Starcraft is much the same. You've got flavourless resource depots (they are called cities in Civilization 5) to collect resources in both games. The tech tree in Starcraft actually might be deeper than Civilization 5's. You've got Giant death robots in both games. Etc, etc. Don't get me wrong. Starcraft I and II are amazing games. They aren't Civ games though. They are simple games for people that like beer and pretzels games. Nothing too stressful on the old noggin. Starcraft I and II sold extremely well. Firaxis and greedy 2K Games took note and tried to emulate them.
