I have been trying to keep up with all the topics in the forum as much as I can, but some of them are starting to scare me a little.
I pledged to Ancient Cities as I enjoy other city/country building games and could see that this could be a fantastic “Game” for me to play once released. Unfortunately some of the topics that are being started are very over my head as I am just a 60 year old gamer (not a very good one) who likes to while away his time on his PC. I don’t really care if a game is not 100% accurate (99% is fine), but I think that wondering if they are going to have the correct foot wear and eating the right type of food is taking it a wee bit too far. Forum members seem to be discussing history rather than how they may (or may not) enjoy playing the completed “Game” (or Beta in some case’s).
Please remember that there are forum members who just want to enjoy the game and don’t want the developers being harassed about the historical aspect of the “Game”. I would like to think that the original idea was for people to enjoy playing the “Game” and not look at it as a historical lecture as there are shed loads of books and TV shows that look after the correct historical aspect of the era that the “Game” is based on.
Let’s not bog the developers down with too much of the correct historical aspect and let them get on with developing a “Game” that the majority will really enjoy just playing it.
