It's taken nearly 10 years, but finally Gunther_Fan starts a thread worth reading. Bravo.

Similarly, In the 10 years I've been on Chiefs planet, my life has gone to shit. Coincidence?

These pictures mean nothing to me. I've never played the game. But, I do find this story very interesting. Some of the suggestions from other posters are very eye opening as well.

Buddy of mine had a long game of Civ 3 going and was a super power and his game ended when the AI voted him out.

I still have save files from a game of Civ 1. I allowed 1 city of an opposing Civ survive so I could continue to expand. I eventually filled up all the land with cities, irrigation, mines and rail, but soon after starvation reared it's ugly head.

I read this on reddit today and it made me want to start an epic on Civ V, but I don't think what he did is quite possible with Civ V :(

It is, sort of. Civ 1 and 2 did not handle aggressive AI very well. You could count on them to violate ceasefires 100% of the time. Pollution and global warming REALLY sucked in those games too, where they aren't as big of a factor in 5.

Oh, the governments weren't flexible at all, either. You made great $ as a democracy but were often crippled with unhappiness, especially while at war.

This is what happens when an IDIOT plays CivII for 10 years. If he wasn't a moron he would have wiped the other two nations out years ago.

I've never played any of the Civilizations. I did play a demo of one of the Age of Empires though. That game was tits.

I once had a game of Civ III last for over 6 months. I probably averaged about an hour a night.

I saved up enough nukes to take out the other world power and it was just my 4 continents and the other 3 quarters of the earth were decimated and nuclear orange...

I used to have epic Age of Empires games, but this is insane.

I'm wondering how he kept military spending going with no production?
