What Civ game should I get to start off?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I have played games such as Napoleon Total War, but I am now looking into buying a Civ game and I am looking at players/veteran of the Civ series to point me to a starting game. What do you recommend? Thanks!

I'd suggest Civ 3 or 4 as something not too ancient. The later ones kinda bogged down in graphics more than gameplay.

Yeah, Civ 6 still needs a bit more work, even if it probably is the best Civ game at launch from recent history.

Civ 5 with all the expansions is great.

Civ 5 is my vote.  (with expansions)

 

Start with workers on auto and just focus on game play, then as you get better you will want to take control of those workers and set a specific plan for each city and you can bump the difficulty way up at this point or it will get real easy.
