If its anything to go by I've played 578 hours.
I've played WoW, Bioshock, Mass Effect, Oblivion, Eve Online, Dragon Age, etc but this has the most replayability and longest life of a gave I've ever seen. Even a ton of teamliquid starcraft people play it. I strongly advise giving it a go.
Any extra thoughts on Altitude? I gave the demo a try and indeed it is pretty entertaining, especially with the variety of game formats. However when playing online I got severely whooped... is it a result of having played less and unlocked far less achievements/better planes?

The good players usually hang about on the Official Servers, a lot of new people die quite fast there. Try a bouncy walled server if you're learning, its more forgiving to learn on and has easier people to beat.
If you're still having trouble there are guides available. The choice of perks does make some difference but I'd say they are pretty well balanced.

I never got into this, played for like 5 to 6 hours and was always super weak and broke.

Particularly tilting since I bought Civ IV: Colonization for $40 in March (stupid retail store), and then Civ IV:Complete for $50 on steam, which included Civ IV:Colonization.

Well the problem with the older point and clicks is they often look immensely dated by todays standards. However I did play through The Longest Journey a year or so ago and loved it. It's very highly rated, but as I say if you can't take the old school graphics/interface then it's a bust from the get go.

I think you just need bts, but you may need the original one as well. You won't need the other 2.

Civilization is one of those games where you either love it or hate it.

I am in the former category, and have spent countless hours with the series over the past 20 years or however long it's been out.

i had played civ revolution for 360 and had a lot of fun, just going to take some time to get used to the pc version since i dont do much pc gaming anymore outside of sports sims. for 10 bucks its worth a chance.

OK so I struggle to imagine who uses Steam regularly who does not already own Portal but if you don't have it already it's FREE until May 24th. GET IT.
