While I like Civ 5 a lot, I have to say the opening screen / main menu just doesn't cut it when compared to 4. The sunrise and nightfall over the planet, the lights from the cities during nighttime, the logo changing from purple to bronze to blue and back again, and the lilting strains of "Baba Yetu" will never be forgotten. No, this isn't sarcasm. I seriously loved that main menu and would often sit and listen to a whole version of the song before loading. Yes, I'm a Civ geek.
