Happy Cinco De Mayo: Top 5 Number 5 Games Of All Time

5 of 6

2. Civilization V

I’ve got a soft spot for the Civ games, so if I was organizing this list based on my own tastes, it’d be number one. I played the crap out of its predecessor and lost significant amounts of time to this one as well.

Some people didn’t care for the way Civ V streamlined some aspects of the gameplay and outright eliminated others, but I dug the changes for the most part. They certainly didn’t make beating the AI any easier, as the tougher difficulty settings were downright brutal. And yet, I always had fun while getting my butt kicked. That’s a sign of a good game.
