“Happy families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.” I have often maintained that this is utter bullshit, and I’m convinced that its bullshittiness would be widely recognized if it did not have the rest of Anna Karenina attached to it. But it does, and people give those lines the benefit of the doubt. Because, you know, Tolstoy.

Dystopia: What a Game of Civilization II Looks Like After 10 Years

Here’s what happened. Some human being kept playing the same game for a decade and then posted screenshots to Reddit along with a narrative explanation of where the gameworld stands. Lycerius, the user, begins his history of the future:

  • The world is a hellish nightmare of suffering and devastation.

  • There are 3 remaining super nations in the year 3991 A.D, each competing for the scant resources left on the planet after dozens of nuclear wars have rendered vast swaths of the world uninhabitable wastelands.

Read more.

I have played my fair share of Civilization over the years, but nothing even comes close to this. I’m quite honestly in awe of this guy for having the wherewithal to continue playing the same game for ten years, even if it was on a sporadic basis.

That said, all I want to do now is go play a good long match of Alpha Centauri.
