Patrick Dickerson of GateCrashers has writtena blog post about his experience with Civ4. I don’t think he writes anything which anyone here has never experienced, but it is a very good summary how everyone probably feels about this game.
“Civilization IV was an important game for me because it helped make me who I am. It showed me that there were others out there like me who was fascinated by the history of our world and wanted to spend time deep-diving into it.
