DID YOU KNOW

Civilization was once ranked as the 11th-most important video games of all time by the website GamePro, and the highest among 4X-type games in the list. Many of history's 4X-type games (which require players to explore, expand, exploit, and exterminate) were influenced by Civilization. Its creator, Sid Meier, has been lauded many times and was labeled as an auteur for his design of the game. In interviews, Meier claimed he based the game on similar god games like the first version of the Sims and Populous. The game was available in many platforms and received great reviews for its simple and entertaining gameplay. After a preview, it was called as an Olympian in the genre of god games in the Computer Gaming World, which ranked Civilization as the best game of all time in 1996. The game was also awarded the Origins Award - Best Military or Strategy Computer Game of 1991, and was included in New York Times' Game Canon list in 2007. Meier's creation did so well commercially that it paved the way for numerous sequels, as Civilization II was released in 1996, followed by Civilization III in 2001, then Civilization IV (2005), Civilization V (2010) and Civilization VI (2016).
