  • Who has come closest to winning Civilization in real life?

    … Games in Sid Meier's Civilization series are loosely patterned off the rise and fall of real-life civilizations. And some of these real-life civilizations had exactly the kinds of ambitions that would win a game of Civilization. Which raises the obvious question: did any of them get close? Has anybody won?

    … through the game's files, and found a few mentions of a religion mechanic. Religion and ideology are two of the biggest and most important aspects of a Civilization V game, and while ideologies are in Beyond Earth (renamed as Affinities), there was no room for religion.
