Visions Of The Future: Man Plays Same Game of Civilization II For 10 Years, World Is Screwed

Redditor Lycerius has been playing the same game of Civilization II for the past ten years. And from the sound of things, the world isn't doing so hot. Well, except temperature-wise, because constant nuclear war has melted the icecaps. There are no more polar bears.

Now in the year 3991, his world is down to three super-nations, each competing for dwindling resources, and a planet left scarred by multiple nuclear wars. His Celts are locked in a 1,700-year war with the Vikings and the Americans. All other nations have been destroyed or absorbed.


Constant nuclear bombardment and sabotage have melted the world's ice caps over and over again, resulting in the flooding of all terrain other than mountains. He said his world is full of swamp (which is useless for farming) and irradiated lands.

"My goal for the next few years is to try and end the war and thus use the engineers to clear swamps and fallout so that farming may resume. I want to rebuild the world. But I'm not sure how. "

Daaaaaaw -- he wants to stop the war and rebuild the world. How very noble of him. You know, maybe there's hope for our future after all. PSYCHE! *Nukes planet, installs Diablo III* Trust me bro, you'll thank me later.

Thanks to Mike, Jeremy and Melissa, who agree that, if nothing else, dude definitely got his money's worth on the game.
