All right, I became a Civ IV addict and it's probably my favorite game ever. Civ V and CivRev are after initial excitements boring, never played Civ II. After hearing how many people have Civ III Conquests as their fave Civ, I decided to get it and DAMN I'm happy with it. I've been playing it side-to-side with Civ IV Bts now, (Civ V has been collecting dust after the last march patch..) and even though III and IV are pretty different in many cases, they are both damn sweet. In Civ III I love the versability and the detail of the game, still I occasionally try to zoom map in as in Civ IV though.. I like the diplomacy system and the civs, and it has it's own flavor in expansing, dealing with barbarians etc. It's also a fresh feeling to discover the differences with nations and goverments. This is how it should have felt with getting Civ V. Now I'll start roaming the war academy archives and see what I can learn..
