Sid Meier's Civilization 5 CivAnon Game Addiction Trailer
We all know video game addiction is a serious problem. Now, with deep strategy games like Sid Meier's Civilization V, the affliction is increased ten-fold. Luckily there are support groups like Civilization Anonymous to help us all move along.

    The Twelve Steps to Break Your Addiction

    1. We admit we are powerless over Civilization - that our lives have become unmanageable.
    2. We believe that a power greater than Sid Meier could restore us to sanity.
    3. We turn our will and our lives over to this greater power.
    4. We make a searching and fearless moral inventory of our turn-based gaming philosophy
    5. We admit to one and all the exact nature of our Civilization addiction.
    6. We ask mercy upon Sid Meier to release us from our addictive tether and defects of character.
    7. We humbly submit to eliminating our shortcomings.
    8. We make a list of all persons we have harmed (not including in-game societies such as the Greeks, Romans or Mongol hordes) and make amends.
    9. We make direct amends to such people, except when to do so would cause further harm.
    10. We continue to take personal inventory and when we feel the urge to take a few Civ turns, we promptly admit it.
    11. We seek to improve our conscious selves, and to reject Sid Meier's siren song.
    12. We practice these steps in our daily lives and bring our message of hope and redemption to other Civilization addicts.

    I saw another show that Edna N explained what happened when she finally was able to split the atom. Essentially, ICBMs for everyone. I stopped playing Civilization IV (BtS) for a few years. Until I saw CIVILIZATION V. The other night, I went ot bed at 11pm and said 1 more turn. Then the British and a coalition of 3 other computer civs declared war on me - while my forces were on the opposite side of my kingdom as I was conquering some nobody called Abe Lincoln. So, I had to play another turn. Then those english brought a stack of doom to my second largest city. I had to strip cities of every defense to protect that city. I even suicided catapults to brunt their force. Another turn later, Alexander the great took over a city that had no defenses on (I stripped them for that other city).

    Finally, I had the lsat laugh. i was able to produce Riflemens. So I showed Alexander what it felt like on the buisness end of a musket! I then had to go to bed at 3am and wake up 3 hours later. I BLAME YOU SID MEIERS!
