DID YOU KNOW?

The first-ever Civilization game released back in 1991? The game drew inspiration from various other games and genres. Some of them are SimCity, Risk, and the like. The game's premise was to challenge players to lead a civilization from 4000 BC all the way to the modern age. Players are in control of the entire journey and experience. Starting with how to go about building your city. Gathering resources for various construction and development needs. Research is also an important aspect of progress. Advance technologies and improve your military might as you reach the modern age. Every step and decision is up to you, the player. It's a unique and engaging experience to have to be in control of your success. If something does go astray, it's also because of your decision. You can back and start again or try to salvage the situation.

The Sid Meier's Civilization series of games is the definitive example of 4X games. 4X stands for "explore, expand, exploit, and exterminate". Civilization games are one of the standards in the strategy game genre. Games live civilization has come out across all platforms. While these games are great in their own way, there's something that is unique to Civilization. Regardless, strategies games nowadays cater to all types of players and preferences.
