Try Civ5 first , save yourself £40 if you don';t like it

There would be too much different between them I would have thought

I know I shouldn't have to tell you but do take a look at GOG and G2A as well. If I could I would never use Steam but sadly I can't buy games off GOG.

I for one am looking forward to playing Civ 6. Though, Civ 5 is one of my favorite games, and Civ 6 has a lot to live up to.

If you can find another/others to play games with also, it can drain so much of your time and it is thoroughly enjoyable.

I play often with my brother on the same team against quite a few AI, you can save (or use the autosave feature) and continue the game where you left off at any time, so it ends up like being a really stretched out chess game that you can keep coming back to and picking up where you left off.
Or of course, quick matches that don't last terribly long in comparison. tongue.gif

With our settings, our games easily last weeks. biggrin.gif
I do love Civ V and it was my first real venture into the Civ series (that I can remember) and Turn-Based probably since Worms in the 90's, having been a huge C&C lover throughout its reign. I think other than C&C, AOE was my other RTS love, and prior to that, Utopia in the early 90's. Dunno why, but I just had a flashback of playing Adventure on the Atari, even though that wasn't Turn-Based or an RTS, man that game sent shivers down my spine, haha.

As for Civ VI, I'm intrigued. I didn't bother with BE, my brother tried it and hated it and my interest in it pre-release went to nil as soon as playable footage and reviews were out. I am hoping that Civ VI is a hit, I was expecting something different with the graphics of it if I'm honest, I suppose I was thinking a CiV V with todays game engines, like what C&C Generals 2 with the Frostbite engine was supposed to be (icrieevrytiem). biggrin.gif

I love multiplayer, if I make a thread you guys wanna get together and play this thing? I would like to even play a blind game, where we all duke it out without any knowledge of the new mechanics and using our dukefest to learn and strategize. It would be so much fun, we could stream it to OCN and everything.

The rules will be different in Civ V versus Civ VI... fundamentals change from Civ to Civ. I mean honestly you could wait the 20 days and buy Civ VI and start new.

Decent little preview here, not sure how I feel about them going cartoony with the graphics as they mention in the article. But the screenshot they have there doesnt look all that different from 5 to me.
