God damnit Civilization V

So I have four more weeks of this semester left to go. It's the home stretch. Final papers, final exams, final debates, and other final things are all coming up around the corner.

So what did I do this weekend? I installed Civilization V. Big mistake.

I've experienced the 'just one more turn' style of game addiction in games such as Medieval II: Total War, but this doesn't even come close to how badly I want to play Civilization. There is ALWAYS something to look forward to just one turn ahead, whether it is destroying Gandhi and his capital city (I hate that prick) or just finishing a building like a university, I just can't bring myself away from this game.

I definitely don't want to turn into this chick:


So on that note, I plan on setting myself a time limit of two hours per day for Civilization time, while the rest will be spent on homework. That should at least let me to conquer the world a couple times before Christmas.

Regardless of my personal concerns, Civilization V is a masterpiece of a game. I highly recommend it (if you don't have anything important to do in the next 3 months).

Oh my, that before and after seems almost impossible! If anything could do it, it's that darn Sid Meier. I think Civ is somewhat ok to play when doing cerebral work though. It can help you plan and think about things in your own life in Civ-steps.

I didn't care for Civ that much, too slow for my liking. Always preferred the old C&C where I could amass an entire army of tanks in minutes and send them off to crush something.
