I aploigise for that, written communication is not my strong point. That being said, anything of intelligent from me may be lost to you or they may not even have been there, but I do believe some people see exactly what I'm saying.
I don't overly enjoy jumping on peoples back, but like many people around here disagree with at times and my feel wound up and 'have ago'. I'd like to think most of what I add is light weight and non-offesive to all.
I enjoy reading what Jerykk as to say and have read much of it over the years. I disagree with it often and am fine with that. Sometimes I feel like disagreeing with what I feel is his demand that complexity equal greater game. It is true in some regards but far from the golden rule of game design which I would say is closer to 'this will be fun to its audiance'
To be on topic and non-offecive I would like to add that I believe that Civ4:Beyond the Sword is undouttable the best expantion of the year. What it adds just to the epic game is amazing.
