Infra Arcana, and add some ambient horror music in background.

Hope the Creator gets back to development (classes system would be great)

Civilization III - for the first time ever. It'll be about twenty years until I could try on Civ-V. :D

I take it you've already beaten Civ 1&2?

Almost the same here ...I owe both 3&4, but haven't touched them (only once I played civ 3 demo for an hour, so it doesn't count :P ).

Yes I did beat both Civ1 and Civ2, albeit on low difficulty level (third lowest IIRC). I don't like dirty tricks Civs encourage, so I have to win only fair and square. Still, diplomacy, as in Civ3 so far, helps greatly.

I used to play Civ 1 long before I learnt English and didn't really understand much of the gameplay mechanics.

I was a despot throughout the whole game, I had no idea my treasury was a thing, so I never had any money and every turn some building got sold and I kept building them over and over again, there were riots in almost every city in almost every town etc.

Somehow I always managed to win easily by domination. Years later I decided to play it again, this time knowing all there is to know about the mechanics, I thought long about each move, made the most of my cities and units and... failed miserably every time.

I used to play Civ 1 without knowing English almost at all :) . And I think I learned like 90-95% of mechanics on my own, as a kid.

I remember Civ1. I had no idea how to play, but I was happy when I saw awesome animation of buildings construction. Or Master of Orion (2? I believe) - same here, but I was excited on fight screen :D

I would give a lot to be able to play Ragnarok again. Come to think of it, it really plays a lot like DoomRL, though I think combat was restricted to melee. Imagine a VGA version of DRL, with vikings instead of marines.

I lucked with a russified Civ1 available to me (of course pirated from somewhere, but at that time I wasn't aware what is it, and frankly no legal market existed at 1991 here, especially when it comes to localizations, they are made by enthusiasts and either sold or redistributed for free), so I had an easy time figuring out mechanics. Eventually I migrated to english Civ1, since I had a semi-native knowledge of English thanks to studying it while being 4-5 years old, and some more nice features were rediscovered :)

With Civ2 I started with englishversion at once, and while struggling at first have managed to get a ridiculous 342% rating in a huge game, ending with about a hundred cities and a complete boredom and anticipation at playing this anymore.

Civilization 4.
One Great Ostrava to rule them all!
(cultural victory by the start of 20th century, currently just watching how long it will take before taking over everything and everyone by pure cultural overwhelming :) ).

I usually play these kinds of games as Martians.

nice one Klear :) do you also play as Martians when playing SMAC/X or Galactic Civilizations? :)

finished that game with a cultural win, heavily inclined to remove Civ3 off my system. It appears it's "same old same old" Civ2 with some nice added features, with the gameplay not getting altered. Mass anything that attacks and defends, smite-smite-smite, win.

*went back to Master of Orion 1, and surprisingly discoveried a localized version O_O*
