    India.

    Not because they have the best UU (which they did, in Civ 4), or because I like the particular trait combination/unique power of their leader (although Spiritual/Industrious was a great combo).

    Nope, I have to play the first game as Gandhi and end it by nuking everyone. Just because I can.

    Rome all the way! However the 2 hour gameplay video have made me very excited to play as Germany and Japan, however tradition comes first!

    After seeing todays demo, i will most probably be trying Japan in my first game... Bushido held chokepoints and samurai killing riflemen is quite impressive :D

    Was Germany until I saw them in the demo, so maybe Siam...or Germany. Ugh I can't decide. :mad:

    Random! And if it's not Germany then I'll start a new game as Germany.

    Siam. I really want to focus on city-states, which means Siam or Greece, and Father Governs Children looks like more fun than Hellenic League. Also, elephants.

    I originally wanted to start as the french, produce lots of culture (including Stonehenge), unlock the liberty tree and spam lots of beautiful cities with world-class restaurants. As the day approaches, I'm less and less sure. I'll probably go random.

    I have decided to play my first game as French warmongering expansionists. In the early game, I plan to concentrate on developing culture and acquiring Social Policies that will allow me to unleash my Musketeers on an unsuspecting world.

    If feasible, I plan to win by building the Utopia Project. Honor is a given; Tradition if I think that I have a realistic chance at Stonehenge; else Liberty for faster expansion. Piety for happiness and free Social Policies

    Rome, as I have done since Civ 1, for the sole reason that I can rename it the Roman Imperium and go on a mass slaughter in the classical/early medieval period and then settle into culture domination for the rest of the game :D

    Honestly, I just don't know enough about them to decide and I doubt I will choose favorites or native. Probably go with random, unless I really like the sound of a particular unique ability or unit after reading up on them.

    I think I'll go with a warmonger strategy for my first game, since that's my weakest area in Civ 4. I think I'll enjoy it more when I don't have to faff about with making massive stacks.

    I have to say that I am quite surprised that there are not more votes for Germany. After the live demo I was even more compelled to keep my choice for Germany. I can't wait to play a game where I recruit barbarians (ranging barbarian option on), spam out cheap Landsknecht units, and end the game by global domination with Panzer tanks.
