    the game has been out approx 2200 days. (6 years)
    I pretty much bought it on release.
    In the beginning I did play a LOT more. (remember sitting on a internetcafe with a friend doing 7pm to 7am multiplayer a few times too often in the weekends).
    Hell, I even had civ dreams in the beginning.
    Later I started to mod, and its a difficult line to draw when you are playtesting and modding, coz many times I do it at the same time.

    But... if its including CFC, modding and playtesting I guess it could be in the 4000+
    if its without then maybe around 2000.

    Civ 5 on the other hand, maybe 3-5 hours.

    I have about 1,500 hours logged in my xfire profile, so probably a bit more than double that.

    I voted 501 to 1000 but then thought that was ridiculously low and did a quick recount. Taking into account that I was made redundant this year and have spent a lot of hours filling my time with Civ IV I would have to say about 2000.

    I played Civ II (serious addiction) for 3 hours a day on average for 3 years so that's another 3,300. I don't even want to count SMAC/X.

    I wish Steam kept track of non-steam games so I could give a better estimate (Yea it's a steam game but I didn't buy it on steam but added it to my steam library so I could use steam chat and stuff while playing it, and I usually play it that way.)

    I've been playing this game... since about a week before people got scared that the LHC was gonna end the world way back when. 'cause I remember I was one of those idiots that thought that. 2008. Been playing it off an on since then. I'll just guess between 1000 and 2000

    I don't think I've ever had a civ game go longer than 20 hours, personally.

    Nah, lol. I rarely spend more than 3 hours on a game, and there's plenty of games where I just quit due to boredom/failure/ stupid crap happening.

    I installed xfire 6 months ago, and it says that I played around 200 hours in my profile. I'll say I played around 500 hours or so.

    It's my primary go-to entertainment outside of NFL football season. Even during football season it's more like a 50/50 split between them.
