I guess I don’t really “get” Civ. I had expected some open ended world-game where my nation existed and grew despite occasional attacks from other countries and from the environment. More like Sim City with fighting. But instead we have short, (less than 3 hours usually) relatively simple scenarios. I keep taking the difficulty level up, but it still seems pretty basic. I don’t really get it. I’m still having fun, but the “addictive” nature of the game is a mystery to me.
