    What an amazing game, definitely one of the best games of this year. As for the movie intro, do what sr_real said, it works perfect. The reason the movie intro plays is because the game is loading during that time but disabling it will show a blank screen instead of the movie which is totally fine. Pick this game up if you haven't, youll get the most bang for your bucks than most games nowadays

    zzzzz, Boring!
    Whenever Civ decides to go futuristic, let me know - back to my Starcraft and Mass Effect.
    Oh, and G4 is going down the toilet also.

    yes, you can bypass him. go into (usually) documents -> My Games -> Civ 5 folder -> edit Config.ini ->

    change SkipIntroVideo = 0 to 1.

    WALA! No more movie intros

    Good game. I am not entirely sold on it. I have it, and played it for hours. But I keep playing Dragon Age Origins (I got that about 3 weeks ago and playing a Rogue Dwarf Noble - I stopped playing my mage... he just seemed to OP - even in nightmare).

    However, one thing I will give this game... is the hexagon tiles. As long as you dont have to move directly up, its awesome! Up is a no, though.

    My biggest gripe is the... lack of civilizations and leaders and balance. And that darn babbling talking old guy in the intro. Can you move past the into waithout him talking? UGH
