Ah here I was getting excited to see a post about why Civ V is so good. So sad that you didn't explain why Civ V was so good. You should have explained yourself so much, but all you did was just say this is good or that is good. Why is it good? As you said, you are accusing of so many people not getting it. Well if you don't want to explain why what we are not getting it, how can we be proven wrong when you can't say it?
So what elements have been allowed to mature to their full potential? How is resources being random be unpredictable and therefore totally uncompelling? I don't get that statement. This doesn't prove at all that Civ V is an awsome game. Please explain further. To me, this doesn't explain nothing. Why does it make it better. Just saying it does, doesn't prove it.Simplification means only taking away elements, but with Civ 5, although elements have been removed, the elements that remain have been allowed to mature to their full potential.
So many people have clearly explained why Civ V doesn't work. Read Sulla's post patch review and you will see that he clearly explains and gives examples why Civ V doesn't work. Why can't you do it? It seems you can't be bothered to take the time, to explain why a game you "love" so much to give details why. Just because plenty has been given praise to combat, you can't? Why won't you do it? You don't love Civ V to explain why? You know what. So many people say they love it, (I hate it) but nobody has explained why. If you so truely believe we don't "see it" please explain why we are blind. I find it funny I have asked what I am not seeing, and only 2 or 3 people tried to say something while the many others can't. They comment but can't say why Civ V combat is so good. So why don't you do it.
For someone who made a nice long post, it basically explains nothing why Civ V is so good. If you need a link to Sulla's review let me know, then you can debate that. If anyone can debate Sullas review then I will believe Civ V is a great game.
Then agian, I respect your opnion. I respect you love Civ V. So please explain yourself completely when you say you love Civ V. Don't just say, I love this, or I love that. Explain why you love it so much. For me, being a blind Civ fiver, I still don't see why Civ V is so good because you didn't explain yourself.
So please explain why Civ V is so good.
