I was wondering why 2k/Firaxis would release this new installment of Civilization that goes so far from the series and the trend it had been following of adding complexity and strategical depth. At first I was feeling betrayed, but then I came to realize that they see the "I want to just sit and win" folks as their market of the future. I can understand that. Now I don't feel betrayed anymore, just feel I've thrown $50 away. What I'd really like to see was a sequel that could keep adding more dimensions to consider. IMO, it should be called Civilization, but, as I said last paragraph, it would be very hard because Civilization is very easily marketed. (To be true, Civ 5 should have been called Civilization Revolutions II or something). So, why not a paralel series for the players like me who don't like playing games like Civ 5? Tricks are for kids and I'm not a kid. I mean, there's a big fanbase that would eagerly jump on such a release. How hard could that be?
