I'm bemused to realise Civ 6 is the premier grand strategy game on the market. Its a fine game but up against games like Total War and Paradox's offerings it feels stale. Theres no dynamism after the start of the game, the computers cant destroy each other let alone the player. Theres no drama, a 'Constaninople has Fallen' type moments that make you take notice just the inconsequential trading of satellite cities that will probably be retaken thanks to loyalty anyway. The 'thirds' design philosophy isnt working for me personally its much too conservative I'd be happier if for now they made a Civ 6 spinoff like colonisation/beyond earth and use it as a testbed for new ideas that could be used for the next big title. Make it fantasy/sci-fi whatever they want (Smokey skies anyone?) just go for it and really experiment with the formula.
