    39 here, not a civ Rev fan at all. Been playing since Civ II though I don't have a copy of it anymore. Civ III was my favorite forever until I got into modding Civ IV and then downloaded Rise Of Mankind mod for BtS.

    From everything I've read about Civ V so far it looks to be a winner. Most interesting thing is the removal of the stack of doom, I can finally put together the thermopolye mod! This...is...Sparta!

    I fail to see the contradiction. I can go from Civ4 to Counterstrike in half a second.

    30 going on 31.

    Started playing Civ 1 back in the 7th grade, in school computer class of all things , which is really all we did in my middle school computer class, pre internet. civ 1 was the game that the teacher let the better students play (not that I also did not enjoy the 5.8 inch floppy versions of Oregon Trail, Prince of Persia, or Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego).

    I really loved all the old Microprose games, Civ, Civ 2, Colonization, MOO1, MOO2 - I played so many hours on those. I also loved the SSI games like Panzer General, so I can see why elements of those games have been brought into the civ series finally. Also played Alpha Centuri, Civ 3 (which I feel made war feel more epic than the current Civ 4, for all of Civ 3's other problems) and have loved Civ 4. Can't wait to play Civ 5, though I hope my computer will be able to handle it without issue.

    Been playing since I got Civ 2 as a young'un. Assimilated by Sid :assimilate: So you could say I'm kind of an old player, though I'm only 25.

    I can't agree with screw graphics. It's about balance. You balance superior graphics with superior gameplay.

    I play a lot of rpg's. If I didn't care about graphics I'd still be playing Wasteland. A cool rpg of the 80's. I tried playing it again a couple years ago, the graphics was a huge turnoff (although it was the lack of a decent save system that really turned me off). I can't even go back to civ2 graphics.

    Wow, and I thought I am one of the oldest gamers here. Never expected so many players older than 25 years.

    I'm 24 and hope I'll play at least Civ XXV ;)

    HAH! I'm 33 and I won't stop until Civ CIV. I guess it only makes sense that the average age of gamers is going up. This may be a good thing.

    19 here, will be 20 by the time Civ V is released.

    The idea of any national leader being a civ player is... scary, to say the least. :p
