This game. This bloody game. This game has.. it.. it means so very much to me. I still have the original deluxe box set from 2001. This game has taught me about history, military command, creativity, humbleness, frustration and so much more. I cannot begin to imagine the true hours I have off of steam. Over a thousand, surely by now.

This game brought me and my new stepfather together almost 15 years ago. This game shaped my brain and how I see the world and history. I have made and submitted maps to the Civfanatics forums, contributed to full overhaul mods, and spent countless hours making faithful recreations of real geography in the glorious editor. All the Civilization games that came after pale in comparison.

This game was probably more of a parent and guide than my parents. Taught me about cooperation and systematic destruction of the god forsaken Aztecs.

A true 10/10, if you have the time to sit down for a 16 hour slugfest on Sid difficulty. From the music to the graphics to the civilopedia to all the content out there made lovingly by loving fans, this game has captivated me like no other in my entire life. The online community might be a little lacking these days, but the AI, in my opinion, does just fine. I cannot express enough how thoroughly I have and still do enjoy this game.

From humble beginnings, this game has risen to stand the test of time. I will play it until the very day that I die. Hats off, gents. A masterpiece reigns.

It's the year 2000.
All the remaining civilizations have nuclear weapons, and my civilization is caught in a massive war with the French.
I can tell they're about ready to take my capital, so I want to make peace with them.

I share my steam account with my Dad.
He plays only one game - Civilization III.
He's clocked in over 4000 hours on this game.
He plays it religiously and has recently gotten my uncle (who is the same age as him) addicted to it as well.

Let's just say my mom and my cousin's mom aren't very happy with them being addicted.

Mom and Aunt: "How can you even keep playing this game over and over again? Don't you get tired?"
Dad and Uncles's response "You must understand. I'm getting civilized"

11/10 - Get Civilized. Play Civilization III.

Start game, begin to settle on coastlines.
See group of 5 bananas.
One of my cities is near, wait for boarders to encompass them.
Incas settle in the center of the banana ring
Spend thousands of years advancing technology to get revenge on the Incas in 2000 when they stole them before I had developed mathematics

12/10 would get bananas again
