Anti-sign. As much as a lot of people want it, I have no desire to watch 2 hours of a turn based game being played.

As someone who has played Civ 5 online, the multiplayer with real dudes is actually mad sketchy for that game. It is NOT the same as the singleplayer. I hope The Davis is aware of that going in.

@President_Barackbar:  Yeah, that would get super boring super quick. They need to combine it with another game and check in on it periodically, like they were going to do tonight.

Psh. As opposed to watching Jeff/Ryan run straight down the middle of the map and die to something we can't see every 20 seconds in another FPS game?
 
Civ5 sounds like it could be a great TNT. I'm all for it.

They'll work it in somewhere eventually. Ryan is determined.

As someone who recently got into Civ 5 (Just finished my first game today) I would LOVE to see this.
 
Actually I'd probably prefer a more endurance run type video series that covered one huge game.

I am both for this, yet against this. I win, and lose, either way.

This is an awesome idea.  Something more like the end of Matrix Online than a true endurance run.
 
I'd settle for a dedicated TNT though.

There are so many games that never got TNT's that should get one and Civ 5 is not one of them.

Then don't watch that episode? I don't want to watch whatever generic crappy console shooter of the week that has come out get played all the time, but I have to put up with it.
 
I was rather disappointed to see SC2 get another dam TNT and Civ 5 getting passed over. If they pick one of the faster game modes you can easily get a game in a 2 hour time slot. I will admit that it will be rather boring at the start, but once they get their war on with some civs it will get intense fast.

Signed. Civ 5 isnt really my thing, but I think it would make for a very entertaining watching experience. Just pick a quick gamemode and let the diplomacy/backstabbing begin.

To those who have supported this idea, I thank you.

To those who are against it, I respect your opinion.

I chose to just come out and say that I'd like this because, at one point, it was a new game (and I understand that, most of the time, they like doing TNTs on new games), and they had considered doing a TNT for it before, but due to there being so many other games out at the time, they passed it up. I've seen a lot of good arguments (slow and time consuming being the main one), however they are definitely ways to speed up the process in that game (including time limits on turns). The argument that I get behind most, however, is this:

If you don't like it, don't watch it. It's not like TNT won't be back the next week. (However, I question the technical limitations in Civilization V now that we talk about it. Does it have a "spectator" mode? That may be stopping them from playing it as well. I should start it up and find out.) That all being said...

I wonder if it'd be better to do small maps and short modes, or just ONE BIG TWELVE PERSON HUGE MAP EXTRAVAGANZA, haha.

Didn't they say they were going to do it with the Starcraft 2 one? I watched it and didn't see it.

@JoeRiccadonna:
They did say they were going to, but in the post for TNT, they said that they couldn't. And, to be fair, they had even booked the pros for an exhibition StarCraft II match, so, it was an excellent TNT, in my opinion.

I think the starcraft TNTs proved how utterly boring those PC strategy games are, Ryan looked like he wanted to kill himself for most of it.

Only if it has some awesome commentary by Vinny and Ryan. But I can see people crying over this because they are not taking the game seriously.

What I want is for the whole Giant Bomb crew (and toss in the Screened and Tested guys as well) to play a massive single-player game where they sit around a table (War Room style) and discuss their next moves and strategies.  Would be particularly funny when Vinny is trying to promote world peace, but then yells "FUCK THAT GUY!  Build some fucking tanks!" when Ghandi provokes them.

That's because you missed Chan v. Shoemaker which was on later that night (I think it's in the archive). Unsurprisingly, the game is way better when the commentators are drunk and have no interest or knowledge of Starcraft, as opposed to someone spitting out jargon at a rapid fire pace (i.e. Norm). 
 
And yes, I sign. As someone who kind of gets tired of First Person Shooter #400,000,000 every week, it would be nice for something totally different.

I would love to see a post-level cap GOTY edition of Borderlands! just as soon as they release that goddamned patch!  
4 player drop-in-out coop, big boss mosnters to fight again, new loot, griefing, etc. I'd play/watch.

@SquirrelGOD: That sounds beautiful. 
Anyway, I support this petition. Civ V is too awesome to not have a TNT.
