Civilization Addiction Is As Real As This Trailer Suggests

While the last Civilization V trailer got us hot and heavy with menu footage, this one hits a little closer to home, dealing with the trauma and tragedy of Civilization addiction.


This clip marks the return of Civanon, 2K's great promotional campaign for the series that were it any other publisher and any other series would be a stupid attempt at cheap laughs. With Civ, though, it comes across as terrifyingly realistic.

I, for example, will be requesting my wife takes an extended holiday later in the year. Better that than she see the state I get in when oneturnitis sets in, and I revert to a more primitive state...

On another note, wouldn't it be hilarious/sad if the Facebook Civ game kept count of how long and how many turns you spent every day playing Civ V and published them for all your friends and co-workers to see?
