I've played Civ games for the better half of my lifetime, so I guess that makes me long-term Civilization player. But what seems to separate me from other long-term civ players is the fact that I like Civilization V. It seems universally hated by long term civ fans. In contrast, people seem to go crazy for Civ IV. To me, the games are just as good. Maybe there is something I am missing. What I'm asking is, why do you prefer to play Civ IV?
