Does anyone play without saving? Generally I save frequently in case of crashes. Since the game has bored me lately I thought I would try being risky and play a game without saving once. Normally I play on Immortal as it's pretty difficult for me, but I decided I would try this on Emperor in case I made a major blunder I wouldn't have to throw away an entire game. Now, I might be in for some disappointment in a few dozen turns, but so far the game has gripped me a lot more this way! Knowing that I have no safety net in case of a misclick or forgetting to reassign citizens, I'm a lot more engaged in all of the details of each turn! I've stated in many places that I find civ5 to be boring, and I may be bored late on in this game if the difficulty level proves insufficient, but right now I'm actually enjoying the game again, and I like it. I'm hoping this feeling stays with me until it finishes/crashes. Does anyone else play this way? I challenge civ5 detractors to try this mode and give me your impressions. I'm only on turn 64, but by now I would pretty much already be going through the motions and quit from boredom in less than 100 more turns. I'm not taking back anything I've said about the flaws of this game, but I do find that I am at least enjoying my purchase more at the moment (no matter how fleeting this moment ends up being).
