Visiting Civfanatics again, and especially the Ideas & Suggestions subforum, reminds me that Firaxis is never going to make the game I'd like to play. I'd like to play a Grand Strategy game that covers the entire sweep of human civilization, from domestication to modern day, with high emphasis on historical accuracy and realism, and a great strategic depth. Many other posters here keep requesting the same, and it's been that way for years. Firaxis has not delivered, and that's because they're trying to make a game that appeals to more casual gamers. So, rather than keep posting the same ideas that have been posted here for many years, over and over, or new ideas that have no hope of ever being implemented, how about a group of us band together, design and create this game ourselves. It's not an easy task, nor a quick project, obviously, but for those of us that want accuracy, realism and depth, it's the only way we're ever going to get to play the game we want to play. What do you folks think? Any interest here at Civfanatics?
