    I own civilisation I, II and V. For me II>I>V. I just never got into the mechanics for V or maybe its nostalga.

    I paid below the average for III and IV mostly and maybe try fighter aces.

    Whats everyone elses favourite? I suppose I need to decide whether to play III or IV first.

    5 is VASTLY improved by the Brave New World expansion. It's still the most radical change to the core rules since the series started, but BNW fixes a lot of gameplay problems to make the midgame more interesting and the endgame more competitive.

    4 is my favourite, I think. I wouldn't rate 3 at all.

    Don't have the time to play big games like Civilisation any more, but I missed that Codemasters weekly deal, decent games for the money. Will probably grab both tonight

    I played A LOT of II, slightly less but still lots of III and IV but could just never get into V, maybe just overload but it felt boring and simplified.

    Re: News - Humble Sid Meier Bundle announced: So much Civilisation!

    V is mediocre, V:BNW is probably my favourite in the series, although I do have very fond memories of call to power, but primarily because that was my first civ.

    The only problem I have with it is that on wet maps mid to late stage naval is op as hell. With the disincentives on huge numbers of cities and incentives for putting them on coasts the first to get battleship and/or destroyer (particularly if you're playing the civ that gives the piracy perk) can cripple or destroy civs without it more or less with impunity.

    Amazing deal but sadly got most already. Except I need to re-buy the first one as my disc is all scratched

    Not overly into Flight Sims, but not heard anything about the Sid Meiers one to warrant buying the bundle for it.

    I have seen the games but they don't appeal to me, so I guess I'm un-Civilised!

    Re: News - Humble Sid Meier Bundle announced: So much Civilisation!

    I've played the Civ games from the days of the original and are pretty much the only games I get excited about there being a new release. I used to be Civ III all the way but I am now a fully fledged Civ V convert and love it. I would highly recommend anybody who does not own it to take advantage of this offer!

    Bargain.

    It's not a flight simply, it's a turn based dogfighting game. That's addictive as hell.

    Civ V: BNW is indeed awesome, but I still hold a candle for Colonization and Civ2, both games consumed many many hours, the former for it's interesting spin on the Civ genre, the later for having to spend all my time cleaning up nuclear fallout.

    Yep, very addictive little games - I'm not sure how much long term staying power there will be in the aces games but feel I've already had my money's worth of fun just playing through one campaign. Getting the flight manoeuvres trickle fed as pilot upgrades works nicely I think - the pilots really do feel like they are progressing from total noobs into aces.
