    Waiting for a proper sequel to IV for years and VI still not out yet. I hope it is a proper game like IV and not a simplified for console V. Cannot believe I starting with IV when I was still in college.

    I seriously felt a wave of goosebumps over my body when that cannon went off with the crescendo, and a little bit again when the Statue of Liberty finished. I cannot throw enough likes at this.

    I'm honestly surprised that they didn't include either of the World Wars as well. But the reason the Mesoamerican pyramid was placed with ancient greece is probably because, in the game, all of the civilizations start at their beginning all at the same time, regardless of where in history they took place.

    Guys, we get it. The old comment section is back. Can we just focus on talking about how awesome the video is instead of how the comment section hasn't changed? It's annoying.

    So much time dedicated to the US History and absolutely nothing about the WWI and WWII.
    Also, the Mesoamerican pyramid (Chichen-Itza?) was contemporary with the European Middle Ages and not with Ancient Greece.
