Computer Strategy Games.

This series is about Computer Strategy Games or Video Games as defined by

This starts out the series on Computer Strategy Games, and we begin with the game that got me hooked, the first Civilization game created by Sid Meier and published by Microprose. Though it is pretty old now, it is still fond in my heart, and in the hearts of so many other gamers. If this comes across as a love letter, so be it. We will also in this series look at where you can obtain old games, and where you can find more information about the games I cover.
