You guys are all completely welcome to your own opinions about these games, but if you're going to reference my writings, you can at least quote them accurately. Making ad hominem attacks against me as a person isn't going to do anything to promote your point of view. The reason why you don't see me around much any more is because I don't have anything more to say. Why would I continue to write and post about a game that I don't personally enjoy playing? I had my say, some people agreed, some people disagreed, and I moved on. Sticking around to complain endlessly would just make me a troll. I'm glad that a lot of people enjoy Civ5. I don't. More power to you. Life's too short to waste on games that you don't enjoy.
