How many of you around here has played Civilization from its first incarnation? I got Civilization 1 for my Amiga 500 in 1993 and after a tough start (I wasn´t used to strategy games being this complex and overwhelming) I soon got hooked! It is really an amazing journey that we now 2010 are still playing Civilization and is getting the 5th game in the sequel. It really have been interesting to study the evolution of this franchise from its first daring steps into this behemoth that is Civ 4 Beyond the Sword. Let´s hope Civ 5 will continue to improve on this wonderful series!
