We all have our ways of thinking.
Another thing on Civ 5, I thought it was like a strategy game that lasts an hour or so per game, I had no idea it would take me 4 days to beat one game. Is it normally that long? 500 turns doesn't sound like a lot but I played a good 3-4 hours a day and it took over half a week to finish.
I like it like that, so that when you grow your empire and stuff you actually get to have fun using it/advancing it, rather than moving through the game in an hour or two, but damn I had no idea it was that long or maybe I just took longer to move than normal since it was my first game.
That's pretty normal. you can play accelerated games or longer games but yeah, a typical game should take many days or even weeks depending on how much time you can put it into it per day.
Everybody good, plenty of slaves for my robot colony?
