There was a good two month stretch when Dave Walsh buil his gaming PC where the only thing him and Jason Nawara seemed to do was play Sid Meyer’s Civilization 5. Every time we’d talk on Skype, they’d be playing it, they’d ask me how they should build their nation, even though I have zero experience playing it. It was charming the way they’d get so excited about it and they’d sort of create their own reality in the game. I so badly wanted to be apart of it, then I realized the barrier to entry and I decided it wasn’t the best of ideas.
With both Jason and Walsh being huge science fiction fans. I can only imagine that this is going to start up all over again with the new Civilization taking place in space.
Side note, Sid Meyer is the only person left who puts his name in front of his games right?
