I totally agree with you. I'm having a blast and not going back to Civ 5. I spend my time looking ahead in the Tech and Civics trees, looking at what Eurekas I can get next, checking City States for how I get a free envoy, and planning and strategizing a lot more than Civ 5. Even on the opponent's turns, I'm checking my cities for Amenities etc., planning ahead, checking the scores for who's ahead in what etc. I think Civ 6 is very engaging and engrossing.
