Civ 5 will suck my balls. I'll still get it in about a years time when there are some nice mods out for it though.
Civ V will be fine. Never been a bad Civ game (main franchise), never will.
Now how about Alpha Centauri 2...?
Having to stare at Sid's mug like it was the inside of John Malcovich's head in Civ 3 was pretty bad.
So beautiful... should have sent a poet

Civilization IV's soundtrack was phenomenal, if only their wonder movies had the, well, wonder of Civ II/Alpha Centauri's.
WHO WANTS DESSERT
I seriously love how the Civilization games have this undercurrent of awe and wonder at humanity's progress...then Alpha Centauri smashes that all to bits by showing that as we inevitably march forward technology will only serve to great disenfranchise the average person while allowing greater atrocities to be committed by the elite.
I just wish somebody would make an (admittedly huge, probably impossibly huge) mod for Civ 4 that allows you to play into Alpha Centauri after the space victory...
I've said before, but that's basically why Alpha Centauri was was way better at forcing privileged, doughy white computer nerds to face actual, selfish philosophies head on. Plus the mindworms and shit. What a great f'ing game.
Look up the mod Planetfall. It's a pretty good representation of Alpha Centauri but with the game concepts of Civ 4.
Personally I don't like it nearly as much as I thought I would.
Firaxis games, like Bethesda it's the best thing MD has to offer. I love my state.
I'm actually too cynical to see this as much more than history's most astounding atrocities (war, colonialism, symbols built by tyrants to lure the masses into sleep) recreated to the soundtrack from the Lion King.
Wonderful series of games though.
