Howdy O&S,

I was intrigued by your post so I looked up the Civilization game. Very interesting.

Question: Do you reccomend a newbie start out with Civ 1? The technology looked a little old but if it is a sequential thing I guess I'll start at the beginning.

Thanks.

You will have a tough time getting Civ 1 to work properly. It's not sequential, you don't need to understand the 1st to play the 5th one.

Just try out Civ 5. If you have a console, try out Civilization: Revolution.

Thanks Saul. I'm not a computer gamer (obviously) so dumb question:
what do you mean by "console"?

PS3/XBox 360/Wii.

Civilization V will be PC only. Civ 1, 2, 3 and 4 are PC only.

We have PS3 and Wii. Do you mean I can buy it online through my PS3 at the Playstation store?

Didn't mean to not answer VP. Saul is right. You don't need 1 to be able to play 4. Be forewarned however, you will never beat this game every time on the upper levels - further, it is addicting as hell.

Start out on Chiefton or so and work your way up. By the time you get to Noble, it'll take you a month to figure out how to beat it.

Thanks for the tip O&S, I'm going to start on it this weekend. If I get addicted I'll have you to thank/curse

Thank you. I'll look for it although it sounds hard to find.

Don't bother. If you're looking for a place to start with Civ, find Civ 2.

Civ 3 is a much better game than Civ 2, though. The diplomacy and cultural options make it much better. Civ 4 streamlined and expanded on the concepts that they introduced in Civ 3.

I'd be suprised if you could even find a version of Civ 1 that would work on a modern computer.

Civ 4 is the best Civ to date, and without a doubt, Civ 5 will make Civ 4 obsolete. Sid Meier doesn't jerk with his franchise.

He screwed up Railroad Tycoon. The first was awesome, then, not so much.

Every Civ iteration has been awesome and has outdone the previous version with added layers of depth and strategy. I don't even care about the graphics improvements, though they're nice. It's the strategy that I love, and in each new version, they have improved from the last.

For my part, I see it as the most awesome and elegant strategy game of all time. I'm looking forward to Civ V.
