I love the Civ series of games. Ever since I was a child, I played the original Civ, I remember we got it used for like $10, but I was instantly hooked and had to get Civ2, which also had been out some time too. I got that one used too, and fell even more in love with the game.
Some of the other Civ games in between? well, not too good (lame actually). Civ Test of Time and Alpha Centauri didnt do it for me at all.
Now, my most favourite Civ has to be Civ3. And when people started doing mods for it, I was hooked. To this very day, I still play Civ3, and I still search the web in hopes that someone is still making custom mods for it.
Civ4 unfortunately did not have the customized variation that Civ3 did [
] If it did, I probably would play it more, but I am a bit disappointed no one has posted up any great mods like they have done for Civ3.
One of my greateset pet peeve, even though it is only a cosmetic thing, is the size of a cannon frigate next to a battleship. A battleship is easily 3times as large as a sailing cannon frigate, but in Civ4, they are exactly the same size! [
