Re: Civ games virgin: Where to start?
There's no big cinematic scenes for doing great things (although there are wonder movies depending on which game if you build one). The big thrill is accomplishing something you've planned out for a long time (conquering an enemy country, building a world wonder, etc). Those things take tons of planning so the addiction is that you keep wanting to play just one more turn to get it done.
