Warlock - Master of the Arcane Cheats
I'm afraid you just missed the entire point of my post... and please don't refer to someone else in the topic in the third person- it's rude. If they've posted, direct your comments to them. You wouldn't go out with friends and talk about someone to someone else while that person was stood right next to you would you?
I'll put it simply- everyone has their own tastes, respect theirs, and they'll respect yours. My taste is that I'm not a particular fan of Civilization, whether it's a short-and-sweet game or a this-is-taking-days game. You're assuming I've never played a Civ game before (and you know what they say about assumptions), or at least very little of one. However, I've played every Civ game from Civ II - Test of Time onwards, and that was the last Civ game I actually enjoyed. So no, I'm not going to play a Civ game and think "whoa, this is much better".
Besides which, comparing games is something I frown upon anyway, because more often than not it's like comparing eggs and aeroplanes. The simple fact is that I don't enjoy Civ, but I do enjoy this. I can just jump into Warlock and get playing, which is perfect for my condition. Call that "casual" if you want, but you'd be wrong. That's all there is to it.

Additionally, I didn't realize the thread was all about your taste.

Considering I'm responding to two specific posts, which are directly related to my own comments, you're just looking for a witty come-back. Which has failed. Enjoy looking for an argument on the internet elsewhere.
Oh, and as for the "hyper-sensitive", you'll notice the final part of tides' post, which specifically refers to "him" as directed at the "him" who has already posted something directly relating to what tides said. If it wasn't specifically directed at me, so be it, but in that case he should better word his posts. Good day.

People play games because they enjoy them. That is the entire purpose of playing games in the first place. End of story.
People have different opinions than you do. Accept that and drop it.
In this case you mus-interpreted. Topic locked and warnings will be issued if you continue in other threads.
