Since about 2 weeks before my join date here, so November 2 1/2 years ago.
I think I bought vanilla Civ 3 in Jan 2003. Played one chieftain game then found this website.
If you want to know how many hours I have actually played Civ - thats tougher. Easily more than a thousand, maybe over 2000. That's like 10 hours a week, but who's counting?
Right around the time of my date here, so ~10 months.
Got my copy with a Best Buy gift card I received for my birthday - Nov 2005. So just about a year and a half, with a couple of breaks where I got re-addicted to WoW.
Civ III vanilla for 2 years, Conquests (Complete) for 3 weeks.
I bought Vanilla Civ3 realitively early. I found it unplayable, so I shelved it and went back to Civ2. It took PTW to make Civ3 worth playing, and Conquests to make Civ3 great.
I got Civ3 around 5 years ago, think it was during christmas 2001. Got Conquests over 1 year ago.
I bought Civ3 when it hit the stores in October/November 2001. So a little over 5 years, now. Before that, Civ2 since about 96 or 97.
Since it came out, I'm old. Started on Civ2.
I bought Civ3 in December 2001, so a little more than 5 years. It is still the game I play the most with the occasional evening of HOMM3.
I bought it about 3 years ago and I got complete about 4 weeks ago.
Ye starcraft is the only game that is even better than civ. It's just that i am too slow for real time games that i play civ
Started playing shortly before i joined this site.
Starcraft, better than civ??? . Yeah, I have played it, and I've got the full version. And it was good, but better than civ??
I wouldn't say it's better than Civ. They're too different IMO to really compare. I can see someone liking one over the other, but to actually say one is better than that other...that's just a matter of personal preference.
Starcraft is an excellent game, but when you finish the campaign and the expansion pack, its done. Civ plays well years later, and theres always room to improve. I don't play Starcraft anymore, so what does that tell you?
It is different with civ because there's always more randon maps to make and there's no such thing as finishing the game.
I am a big fan of Civ II, so I got Civ III right when it came out. So 6 or so years, with long breaks of other games or no games at all.
I recently started playing about two weeks ago.
It actually starts after you played the campain. I played it every day for 5 years. It is by far the best competetive strategy i have every played.
I quit after 5 years because the online community pretty much fell appart and because it was too much an addiction for me without hopes of reaching the world top.
