Original Reddit thread.

Internet reactions.

It supposedly even made Mexican news.

Which is to say that Reddit is awesome.

(Or maybe everyone seems to have fallen for brilliant viral marketing from Sid Meier.)

I love emergent strategy games. The game inherently changes depending on the decisions and choices the player makes. Civilization is a great example of a game that weaves a different narrative every time you play, shaped by your actions and the unique environment that evolves alongside the civilization you build. I never played an extensively long Civilization game, but it is really impressive that the game can retain character and some sort of balance even after years in a single match.

I've never actually finished a game of Civilization. Of course, I'm talking about the Avalon Hill board game, not a computer game, but there's something sinister about the idea that a game of civilization should end at all.
