    Steam does not cause any issues.

    Civ5 is a very good game, it is certainly worth it, but after a few years I got bored and went back to Civ4.

    My opinion is that multiplayer in TBS games is like chess. You must have the time to think about your moves. Therefore the best way to play multiplayer in TBS gfames is PBEM, with 1-2 moves per day...

    I don't know about that game but I read it was developed by Kerberos, not Paradox. Strategy games developed by Paradox are awesome, give it a try. Since I got bored by Civ5 for me there's only Civ4...

    I will probably still buy Civ6 but I don't have high expectations for it. I am much more curious about Stellaris, Paradox has been doing amazing strategy games for years now and they seem to have the...

    Not really. With Civ4 you can play just using the keyboard, with Civ5 you need the mouse a lot more. Civ5 UI is really lacking in that regard, for example think about how many mouse clicks you have...

    It depends, anything before Civ4 looks outdated now. But considering how good the games were at the time when they were released I would say SMAC is a very serious contender for best Civ game.

    I don't understand your point. You said it yourself: Civ5 AI "comes across looking like is half as smart". So you agree that the AI is bad and poses no threat to the human player. And you think that...
