People on the internet generally don't enjoy reading long articles
. We understand. You've got places to go, people to see, episodes of Heroes
to watch. Who has time to actually scroll
through several screens worth of writing when there's so much to do?
That being said, we heartily recommend that you set aside a few minutes and read through PC Gamer's epic account
of what is likely the longest game of Galactic Civilizations 2
How long exactly? The "Gigantic" sized match has been going on for 16 days
now and is just beginning to show signs of an imminent ending.
Besides being routinely laugh-out-loud funny, Tom Francis' running account captures the intricacies of interstellar diplomacy, taxation, genocide, despotism, popularity rankings, and extremely foolhardy military planning in a form that even people unfamiliar with the game will find interesting.
Go ahead and read it. That status report will still be there in fifteen minutes.
