And why?

Also, what is your favorite way to play when you set a game up for single player?

I always choose Washington.

I like having as many players as possible and them being randomized, with 12 city states, King difficulty, 5,000 years, standard time increasing, and the world like it is now.

Back in the olden days before the different civs had varying bonuses I usually went with the Greeks. I'm an admirer of classical Greek culture so this was an easy choice for me, I also just like the names of Greek cities and the history they associated with them... Athens, Sparta, Corinth, Thermopylae... truly the stuff of legend!

In the more recent versions I'm partial to the Indians since they have the best special unit IMHO. The fast worker is the only special unit that you get to keep throughout the game and they can give you a nice infrastructure boost early game. Also I just really like that Ashoka guy, a rare enlightened ruler in an age of barbarism and savagery.

In Civ 4 I always go with India. Fast Workers and Ghandi's "no anarchy" thing really helps.

Civ 5, I like India. Ghandi is considered "meh" by the Civ community but I find he's a great leader for my play style. Great growth bonuses because of start bias, very good UU that replaces Composite Bowman and is much earlier. Good UB as well.

In Civ 4 I played Russia because Cossacks were pretty powerful.

In Civ 5 I played Arabs, Ottomans, or Germans.

Haven't play Civilization yet (I got Civ 5 for free from the GMG promo a few days ago), but I loaded it up and did a quick check to see the list of nations I could pick from.

I'm thinking I might go with England.
