Scoring ends at 2020. You can continue playing as long as you want after that so no, not total BS

It is no surprise. Practically ever A.I. in the Civ series is a lying, back-stabbing a-hole. Unfortunately, in Civ V, every A.I. in the game seems to be bipolar egomaniacs who will suddenly hate you and want you to die, for no apparent reason, even if you were getting along famously since the day you met.

Damn't I just got the itch. I wanna play! I get real into a game for about a month, get bored and don't play anything for three, then start playing something else.

Joshua: Greetings, Professor Falken

Falken: Hello, Joshua

Joshua: A strange game Professor Falken. The only winning move is not to play....

......How about a nice game of chess?

That is awesome that someone has been playing the same Civilization II game for 10 years. That's the main reason I starred and flagged this thread.

I'm not sure it is an accurate depiction of our future, but there could be some truth in it, as resource depletion might cause wars and scarcity, for example.

"Nuclear launch detected..."

Sorry, wrong game. That's Starcraft.

Civilization II is a great game, I still have it on my PC.

Your parameters for real simulation of world progress intrigued me.

How much do you want to bet they're doing something like that already?

We know where Watson is currently. We know black tech is 20 or more years ahead of civilian tech.

I think it's safe to say they're running such a project.

I'm interested in understanding the data the game programers used to extrapolate this outcome. Is it human history? Given the post-apocalyptic, theocratic nightmare that is the result - that's pretty freaking scary.

It is known that the government and corporations use simulated environments to anticipate outcomes so it's not so far fetched that the game simulation could have some basis in fact.

In this instance, it's fairly far fetched.

Though at times I think they got this part bang on: AI diplomacy is highly predictable, and you can manipulate them very easily.

If this article gave you the itch to try your hand at civ2 you can download "FREECIV" for free. It's the same game as civ2 with slightly different graphics.

Thought it was great when first reading it, but as for the people wondering if it could be a true reflection of our reality : only by some type of total fluke, freak chance. Reality is obviously infinitely more complicated than an old Civ game, with way more variables that affect outcomes of things.

The ONLY thing that comes to mind when reading this (just add another panel for "board games")

Honestly that guy must suck really bad.

I would have killed off all my enemies by 1960 and would be master of the world.

I have been playing the game every since the first came out, I play five and six around the world as we speak. The one thing I learned about the game was that...the ultimate winner of the human race is the one that travels to another planet and succeeds in Terraforming on it


So it's like Mormonism?

I guess you get just not a planet, but an entire universe.
