I went to a civ community, to just ask if Civ 5 was simpler, easier, less complex for a noob, and I got all these insulting replies "yeah civ 5 is better if you have a room temperature iq".
Its ironic the civ community was so militantly pro-5, anti-6 a few years ago, and now its so opposite. I mean Im not even denying if 6 is a better game, just asking if 5 would be better for my special needs.
yeah I want the easier, less hard, less micromanaging, less work game.
Civ 5 and 6 were both universally praised by reviewers. But even the positives for 6 did talk about all the complexity. I liked how inviting this review made 5 sound for noobs.
