    Does anyone know of a fun long lasting building game? considering how hard they are now days to get by as nearly no new ones get made especially not when they are games that just take days to go through.

    So what im looking for really is an rts ish kind of game but without it being missions or based on being forced to fight an enemy but that the game is more so focused on building things and not just simply with a resource or 2-3 and a building timer but actually having to work to get the things needed to build a certain building so a game where resource gathering and research is a big part of the building process.

    It doesnt matter if the game is 10+ years old so long as its fun and lasts a long while while building things up and you cant just rush through it and "win" the game

    I think you just described Civilization 5. I'm not sure about the other ones, as the 5th was the first one I played.

    The first time I played, the match took me 10 hours overall. Really entertaining and I accidentaly stayed up until 4 am more than once.

    pretty much like it ya but more centered around village building then global domination or missions and such so more towards the city building type but not quite like it

    funny part is i posted this up also on gog.com and the first 16 replies that gave me like 50+ games where all games i already played :( its hard finding good games that focus more on resource/research/village building over pure rts(eg command and conquer) heck even pure rts is hard to find now days

    i guess what most would fit it is a mix of cultures/settlers with majesty and zeus and such

    Like a village builder but not like sim city where its simple money gathering and mass placing of buildings and infrastructure but more towards the way of cultures/settlers with a small village that you have to develop and grow and trade with others and such so similar to games like dwarf fortress/towns but not that much micromanagement as both games require.

    Its the kind of game i have been looking for for several years now but any game similar to that would be fun to have and play even if its a game that is hard to come by now days in terms of buying it and such

    Okay, here is the ultimate solution. New MC server where you are god and all players who join must do your bidding. PvP on. =P
