Thought I'd tell you all about one of best memories in a strategy. Despite believing that Total Annihilation is the best strategy game ever made, that is not the game that comes to mind. The game I'm talking about is the original Civilization. Yes, the one where you had to move tile thingys around with symbols on that represented your units.
Strange thing is that I completely lost the game, yet it is still one of my fondest memories. I can't remember as what nation I was playing. All I remember is that it was close to the end of the game. France were dominating all the nations and had about 70% of the map covered. I had lost most of my cities to them. During one of our peace periods during which France was crushing one of the other few remaining nations, I decided to make one last strike at them. Knowing I had no chance of winning, I decided I needed to make it big. So, I start producing as many tanks as I could. A couple of transports for them. Once I thought I had enough, I loaded the tanks onto the transport and proceeded to the French mainland. I landed my tanks on a piece of neutral territory. During my next turn I marched right up to Paris and proceeded attacking it. I won the city and when given the option to keep or destroy it, I destroyed it.
It was such a satisfying moment, knowing that I crushed the capital city of the French.
Needless to say, i got my ass handed to me during the next couple of turns.
That was probably more then 15 years ago but for some reason that always stayed with me.
So, what is your best moment?
