I got better at it since I was a kid, I usually played a game of War when I played it though, I didn't really understand the concept of a cultural victory or whatever, but when I replayed it I found it easier to create a defensive force and boom culture
Until I start getting paid for new job, I'm too broke. I find old games are easier to download since fewer people seem to give a fuck about them - less virus infested fake shit to waste time with, sometimes - what's it called, abandonware? I don't actually pirate games much if at all, unless it's old shit.
It would be an excellent addition to the list of shit to download, but a complete CivII craving replacement, probably not. I will figure this patching shit out, I'll just be annoyed about it until I do.
