Before the Web Was Weaved

February 15th, 2007

I was looking for an add-on to Microsofts Flight Simulator the other day when I chanced upon my all-time favorite game Sid Meirs Civilization.

If youre a frustrated dictator or democratic leader, then this is the game for you. Your primary task here is to build a nation from scratch. You can build temples, bridges, hospitals, and other infrastructures in the cities that youll be creating.

Of course, no game is complete without armed conflict. You can wage war with other civilizations, or create an alliance with them. Its like Sim City combined with your favorite war game.

The first Civilization that I was able to play was the DOS version (yeah, Im that old). A friend of mine gave me a copy made for Windows back in 1994. Unfortunately, that version of the game runs only on Windows 3.0. My OS at that time was Windows 3.1. I found that weird since everybody (I think) was already using version 3.1 at that time. I dont know if it was just a driver problem or if my copy of the game was just corrupt.

Im glad that compatibility issues nowadays are not that big an issue anymore. Searching for a driver during the 80s and early 90s usually means writing the manufacturer to send you a copy of the same. Today, all you need to do is look for a device driver finder and everythings fixed in a jiffy.
